Remember the time when one of TERA’s development leads left the project not long after the game launched? Another high profile executive is set to leave the company, according to foreign reports. Reports are pointing to the apparent failure of TERA hitting expected targets, leading to Hangame’s interim/ deputy CEO to submit his resignation letter, already accepted by parent company NHN. Other sources point to him leaving to begin his own company as the interim position is restricting his progress.
Korean MMO portal Hangame is set to be restructured as well, with divisions for mobile gaming, MMORPG and non-MMO projects, with a different person in-charge of each rather than just 1 top superior. During the interim CEO’s stay at Hangame since 2005, he oversaw games including Project R1 by buying over IMC Games, Kingdom Under Fire II, Metro Conflict and of course, TERA.
