Update: It's official. MapleStory 2 English closed beta begins on May 9th, 2018! Sign up on the official website here! CBT is running from May 9th - May 16th. Signups are open until May 6th.

MapleStory 2 is all but confirmed after various internet sleuths dug up Nexon's newest social media accounts. Nexon already set up a page for MapleStory 2 on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, and Twitch. An official announcement though is expected to come later today during MapleFest, which can be viewed on Twitch:

I'm personally quite excited to play MapleStory 2 in English. I think the game actually has a lot of potential in the West. It combines actiony gameplay with persistent world housing, item collecting, mini games, quality emotes, and a whole lot more. Expect another news post when the official announcement happens later today.
