If you have not heard of Bluehole Studio, it must mean you have not been following the recent developments in the MMO industry :p In a brief introduction, Bluehole Studio is the developer of the upcoming action MMO, TERA, which is also their maiden title. Core members include veterans from NCsoft, who worked on Lineage 2 and also from various companies like Nexon, if I remember correctly. Having garnered hundreds of millions of funds to develop TERA, the studio will be publishing the game in Korea under NHN (Hangame), in Europe under Frogster Interactive and under En Masse Entertainment, their very own North American subsidiary, in… North America. With the Korean server going into Open Beta in a week’s time, one of the leading gaming websites in Korea, Chosun, has took a sneak peek into the offices of Bluehole Studio.

It has always been a dream of mine to work in a online gaming developer in some capacity… Let’s hope my dream will somehow come true sooner or later 🙂 You can also have a peek at En Masse Entertainment’s new office in North America here.
