In what I see as a really bizarre business move, Nexon Korea just purchased the global IP rights for Shaiya, which is developed by ChoiRock Games (formerly Sonov). With this deal, the 30-odd team members behind Shaiya will now move and work under the Nexon brand. Note that ChoiRock Games is not being bought over, but just the Shaiya team and the game rights.
In service since 2006, Shaiya is currently in service around 16 countries, with the North American server currently under Aeria Games (link). Perhaps the extensive global outreach and the game’s success is what Nexon banked on. It is unknown if Shaiya 2, currently under development, is included in the deal.
