[SHA] Aeria Games To Continue To Publish Shaiya Online In Western Markets
Despite Nexon’s acquisition of the global right to MMORPG Shaiya Online in January 2012, the game will not follow the same fate as several other games which have been in a similar position. That is, the Western service of the game will not be transferring publishers from its current publisher to Nexon America or Nexon Europe. Aeria Games and Nexon Korea reached an agreement today which has Aeria Games continuing as the publisher of Shaiya in North America and Europe. The time frame for this agreement has not been made public.
Shaiya Online was launched by popular Santa Clara, California-based publisher Aeria Games in 2008 and has since become one of the best known free-to-play online games in the West. The official website is http://shaiya.aeriagames.com/. The company acquired the game portal previously operated by NHN USA, ijji, in early 2012.
