Nexon Co LTD was founded in December, 1994 by Kim Jung Ju and Jake Song in South Korea. The company currently has its headquarters in Tokyo, Japan, with major offices in the U.S., Luxembourg, and South Korea. Nexon typically self-publishes their their own in-house developed titles. They were one of the first companies to bring free to play MMOs and MMORPGs from Korea to North America and Europe. They really got the ball rolling on the entire F2P industry in the West. Although they are still a Korean company, the company is publicly traded on the Tokyo Stock Exchange under the ticker 3659:JP and is worth over $4.5 billion USD, making it one of the largest free to play companies in the world. Nexon acquired rival developer nDoors on May 4, 2010 for approximately $150M USD. They also acquired ~30% of rival GameHi on May 27, 2010 for $59M USD. In 2012, they bought ~15% of NCSoft and attempted a hostile takeover, but they were thwarted and ended up selling their stake in NCSoft in 2015, giving up on takeover. Nexon also owns Boss Key Productions, which they acquired in Mid 2014.
