Splash Damage Ditches Nexon, Chooses to Self Publish
Nexon has been publishing the game since 2015, but all publishing responsibilities including marketing, servers, management, and anti-cheat will move over with the new agreement once the ink dries.
This move was in part motivated to address one of the most important issues plaguing the game: Hackers. Splash Damage has already announced that they would be ditching the current anti-cheat in favor of EasyAntiCheat which is successfully deployed by some of the biggest shooters.
Interestingly, Splash Damage will be creating a new publishing arm called Warchest to house Dirty Bomb. This move hints that the studio could have plans to publish additional games in the future.
Splash Damage put out a great video detailing the deal and what it means for players in the weeks and months ahead:
