ROSE Online – Japan server developer and publisher files for bankruptcy

There aren’t many interesting news recently, but this one caught our eyes from the Japan media. If you did not know, ROSE Online Japan was formed in 2013 to publish and develop new content exclusively for the Japan server, with the most prominent addition being the Shibuya Crossing expansion. According to a report last week and since confirmed by the company, it has filed for bankruptcy with a debt of around USD 4 million and 46 creditors.

Despite firing and suspending employees in late 2019 with unpaid salaries, the official notice from ROSE Online Japan on the game’s official website claimed that the company will continue to operate and develop new content. These include new dungeons and ROSE Online’s 15th anniversary “major update” in July. There seems not to be an official English server now, and we guess we will never really get to “Rush On Seven Episodes” afterall.
