Not long ago, I posted about Webzen kick-starting the halted development of MU2, the sequel of their flagship MMORPG, MU Online. In the most recent financial report for the year of 2010, Webzen reported a total revenue amount of around USD 330million, with profits standing at nearly USD 114million. This is a 34% increase from their performance in 2009. Also confirmed and announce was the development of MU2, which will be showcased sometime during this year. G*Star 2011, anyone?
Webzen’s past few months were also quite eventful, with the company buying over NHN Games, Ymir Entertainment, publishing rights for Firefall in some Asian regions and teasing about their upcoming English MMOs over at the global portal. Their Korean games are still continually seeing various updates, most recently S.U.N Online. From what I know, Webzen is still currently renting office space within a commercial building, compared to its competitors who are mostly having a building of their own. If the expansion of business continues, it won’t be long before Webzen has one of its own as well.
