This is an interesting article which I read just as I was preparing to turn in for the day. I was browsing through Korean gaming website, This Is Game, and saw a photo of Mr Mark Kern in one of the articles. Upon reading, it seems that Red 5 Studios is not really satisfied with Korean MMO company, Webzen. If you do not know, Webzen apparently has the global rights for Firefall, except North America and Europe. I believe the rights for China is under The9, but this wasn’t stated in the article.
If you are a Firefall fan and took notice, no representatives from Webzen was sighted at PAX East 2011, where Firefall stole the limelight. Red 5 Studios and Webzen is said to be having an “informal” meeting soon regarding the game. Meanwhile, This Is Game also stated that there is no sign of Firefall at Webzen’s Korean or Global English websites. Getting a response from Webzen, the company’s representative said that Firefall will be ready in 2012, not long after the North America server’s launch. Not having Firefall listed on their websites does not mean the game will not launch. It was also mentioned that it is all a misunderstanding and both parties will be looking to solve it amicably.
