Nexon Hiring MapleStory 2 Product Manager in California - Western Release Coming?
Nexon posted a job opening for a "Production Manager - MapleStory 2" for the company's office in El Segunda, California. This is the first bit of news we've seen that leads us to believe that MapleStory 2 may finally be coming to the West. The game never reached blockbuster status in South Korea and has been missing in recent Nexon investor presentations, but seeing this job posting means the company is working towards releasing the game in the West.
There's no word on a release date just yet though. All we know is that Nexon is looking to hire a production manager for the game in their SoCal office. Nexon hasn't even made a formal announcement about this, so the Western launch could still be many months or even a year away. As someone who has played the original MapleStory, I'm quite excited about this one, as I played the original MapleStory quite extensively. MapleStory 2 was missing from Nexon's GSTAR 2016 lineup and wasn't there last year either. So seeing the game finally coming to the West is definitely a surprise. A pleasant surprise.
