Lineage Eternal – NCsoft delays Closed Beta for action MMORPG

During its financial announcement for the 1st quarter of 2016, developer NCsoft announced the first Closed Beta phase for Lineage Eternal for South Korea has been moved from early 2016 to the “3rd quarter of 2016”, which is anytime between June to September. It doesn’t sound that far away, but given developers are known for several delays, I wouldn’t put much hope into this timeframe as well.

For the first quarter of 2016, Lineage continues to be the main income source followed by Blade & Soul. The rest of the game are still performing decently well, except for WildStar of course. The sci-fi MMORPG looked to have bounced back in late 2015 with the conversion to Free-to-Play, but the momentum barely lasted before dropping to new lows. R.I.P, I can sense the Grim Reaper closing in.
