Perfect World Beijing, or Wanmei, all along has only publish its self-developed client online titles on its platform in China. But with the tastes of gamers greatly widen these days, the North America subsidiary was the first to begin importing Korean games and publish English-developed titles such as Star Trek Online (TBC) after the buyout of Cryptic Studios.
The headquarters over at Beijing, China, is not different, as it prepares for the first time, to publish 2 foreign games, both from North America.
These 2 are none other than Neverwinter and Valve’s Dota 2. Neverwinter was a given, since Perfect World essentially owns the game, but what is surprising is the fact Perfect World managed to beat out tough competition to land Dota 2.
In all honesty, only Tencent has experience in proper eSports planning, with the rest of the pack yet to fully immerse in this category.
Perfect World is still developing games such as Swordsman Online and Saint Seiya Online, and I can see the company finally diversifying into a broader spectrum to keep up with times, which is a very good thing to catch up with the competition.
