Nexon and Crytek Sign Deal to Operate Warface in Japan
TOKYO and FRANKFURT AM MAIN, Germany, May 16, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --
Crytek and Nexon continue expanding the Warface
brand across Asia
Crytek is set to further expand the Asian audience for their free-to-play FPS, Warface, announcing today that they will be partnering with leading online publisher NEXON Co. Ltd to bring the game to PC players in Japan.
"Expanding Warface to Japan is a very important step for us," said Cevat Yerli, CEO & President of Crytek. "Since it's a global IP, this move perfectly underlines our strategy in sharing the game's unique action with gamers around the world. Nexon is a very trusted partner; they have shown us tremendous results in South Korea, where Warface just entered Open Beta after receiving highly positive feedback from gamers during Closed Beta, and we are sure that they will play a key role in ensuring Warface's success in Japan as well."
The news that Warface will be coming to Japan is yet another achievement for both Crytek and the game's publishers after hitting ten million users in Russia and successful Closed Beta phases in Europe and South Korea.
