[Source] According to foreign reports, Dragon Nest Korea is on the verge of being closed down, permanently. This is due to Korean studio Blueside (link) reporting the game’s developer, Eyedentity Games, to the police. Blueside alleged that an ex-staff of the company, who is now working in Eyedentity Games, used proprietary technology information to make Dragon Nest’s engine and aid core development.
While Eyedentity Games denied the fact that stolen information was used in creating Dragon Nest, Nexon Korea responded with a more pragmatic approach, stating that investigations will go on until there is clear evidence of such a crime. Blueside, on the other end, is standing firm with the accusations.
Update on 6th July: The charge has since been dismissed by the police. This case revolved around a technology call Fame Tech. The staff involved was found to have forgotten to delete a Fame Tech-related folder from his personal machine. He is being penaalized with a fine. Blueside has also agreed with the outcome. Dragon Nest is not closing!
Update on 9th July: Blueside will be seeking further legal advice against Eyedentity Games!
