As rumored several weeks ago, the rights for Lineage and Lineage II (China) were going to Tencent Games, the biggest online gaming company in China after NCsoft’s contract with Shanda Games was not renewed. Despite signing Blade & Soul, no news about these 2 classic titles were heard until the official confirmation earlier today. If you haven’t heard, the official servers for Lineage in North America will be shutting down soon. Lineage II is still going strong, with a new update apparently coming soon. With this, Tencent Games will be publishing Blade & Soul, ArcheAge, Lineage and Lineage II next year. Some other new titles for the company can be found here. The official website for Lineage 1 China can be found here while Lineage II’s can be found here.
