[NXEU] [WR] Nexon Europe To Take Over War Rock’s Global Service

The Global/International service of War Rock, the popular and successful first-person shooter, will be taken over by Nexon Europe at the end of May. War Rock joins MapleStory, Combat Arms, Atlantica, Vindictus and Dekaron in Nexon Europe’s growing portfolio of game titles. Another first-person shooter, Shadow Company, will also join Nexon Europe, as well as Nexon America and Nexon Japan, later this year.

Having previously been serviced by K2Network on their GamersFirst portal since 2007, War Rock has become a well known title globally. It is developed by Dream Execution and it was decided that the publishing contract between Dream Execution and K2Network would not be renewed. Nexon Europe has taken over that contract.

“WarRock is simply a perfect fit for our current portfolio”, said Sungjin Kim, Nexon Europe’s CEO. “It’s another well known title that drives us to a point where we are able to redefine the market for MMO-FPS Games.”

Peter Jang, CEO of Dream Execution Technologies, said: “The partnership with Nexon Europe, a publisher who possesses both passion and expertise, will prepare “War Rock” for the second leap in North American and European markets. I would like to thank all users for playing and showing their love and care for “War Rock”. From now on, both Dream Execution Technologies and Nexon Europe will continuously strive to improve the quality of the game and service.”

War Rock is published in Korea by Nexon, where it is currently celebrating its 7th anniversary; Japan by NEC BIGLOBE; the Philippines by Amped; and Indonesia by Megaxus.
