Kingdom Under Fire 2 Launching in Europe and North America through GameForge This Year
In a surprise announcement, GameForge announced today that Kingdom Under Fire 2 will be launching for European and North American audiences through their service sometime later this year. This is surprising because Kingdom Under Fire 2 isn't even out in its home market of South Korea and its first market outside South Korea was supposed to be Russia, but the Russian website for the game is down. Given the lack of development in its home market, I have a sneaking suspicioun that the GameForge version of the game will be largely incomplete.
BlueSide, the game's developer, and GameForge seem more optimistic though.
Sejung Kim, CEO of Blueside, said in a statement:
Blueside has always sought a publishing partner with significant experience and a deep understanding of the Western online games market required to properly service Kingdom Under Fire 2. Based on their unique and extensive experience bringing Asian multiplayer titles to Western markets, we believe Gameforge is the publisher we’ve been looking for. We are very excited to collaborate with Gameforge to finally introduce Kingdom Under Fire 2 to fans throughout Europe and North America.
Tomislav Perkovic, Chief Product Officer of Gameforge, added:
The Kingdom Under Fire series is a favorite among those of us at Gameforge, so we’re very excited to partner with Blueside to continue this epic saga and finally bring it to Western markets for the very first time. We are determined to help Blueside realize their vision of the ultimate MMO, launching Kingdom Under Fire 2 for Windows PC in North America and Europe later this year.
Kingdom Under Fire 2 is expected to launch on multiple digital platforms later this year. I take that to mean through GameForge's official website, Steam, and likely the Epic Store as well.
