If you did not know, Smilegate is a Korean studio which almost closed down years ago, until Tencent started publishing its game, CrossFire, in China and became the world’s biggest Free-to-Play game ever. These days, the founder of Smilegate is one of South Korea’s richest man and you might heard about a MMORPG known as Lost Ark. To be honest, I am still in a minor shock over this piece of news!
