Nexon – Epic wuxia MMORPG Moonlight Blade teased for Western release

One of the biggest online games in Chinese history, both in terms of HDD space and content, Moonlight Blade seems like a heavy investment for any western publisher to bring over to the western market. However, in Nexon’s latest financial report for the 2nd quarter of 2018, Moonlight Blade can be spotted in the company’s pipeline for “North America and the rest of the world.” Is this an official nod to the game’s imminent arrival? Developed by an internal studio of Tencent, Moonlight Blade has thus far only launched in China and South Korea.

Back to the financial report for the 2nd quarter of 2018, China and Korea remains Nexon’s main sources of revenue, taking up 80% of the pie. Nexon is still reliant on its legacy PC games such as MapleStory and Dungeon & Fighter, as 77% of the total revenue still comes from the PC platform. Seems like the mobile market is getting tougher! It also finalized the purchase of developer NAT Games, developer of HIT and Overhit, in late June. Business is as usual for Nexon, so stay tuned for more updates, especially with regards to Moonlight Blade!
