Nexon tidies up the box of its subsidiaries. The Japanese publisher has decided to bring together two studios to create a new one, Nexon Games.
As strange as it may sound, the Japanese group Nexon (in the top 10 of the largest video game groups), with sprawling subsidiaries, did not yet have a named studio Nexon Games. It is now fixed, since the parent company announced the merger of Korean development arm Nexon GT, with other Korean studio NAT Games.
The merger will be voted on by the board of directors on February 8, 2022 and will allow the publisher to bring together the strengths of Nexon GT, mobile RPG developer, with those of NAT, currently in the spotlight on Project Magnum, an A-RPG planned for PC and PS5.
This merger could allow the project to orient itself a little more online on PC. Recently, the group decided to inject its enormous annual profits back into big studios like Bandai Namco, Konami and Sega Sammy in order to help them move towards more games-services and online, Nexon’s core business.
