According to Chinese gaming industry website, Gamelook, Nexon has outlined its plan for further global expansion in 2011, particularly in Europe and China. Having started acquiring developer Neople back in 2008, Nexon has since bought over Ndoors and Gamehi this year. With all these development power, Nexon will finally settle down on building up their portfolio and creating new intellectual properties (IP).
In the recent internal restructuring, Nexon divided the company into 2 separate and clear divisions, namely the development and live services divisions. This is actually a better organised structure compared when each game has its own team of developers and customer service personnels. The new structure will allow all manpower and expertise to be gathered under the same umbrella.
Now comes the big part, Nexon’s grand plan for 2011. Other than expanding overseas, the company will be looking to release more games on platforms such as browsers, mobile phones, smart phones, iPad (Embrace the Three Kingdoms) and even creating new social network services. Existing titles such as Mabinogi, Maple Story, Counter Strike Online and Dungeon Fighter Online will also be getting new updates. Gamehi’s Sudden Attack is going strong in China, with Mabinogi Heroes next to come in the mainland. Finally, Mabinogi Heroes is also slated to be released in Europe in 2011.
