NCSoft Restructuring is Shift Towards Triple-A MMOs

By -

Less of the kid stuff, more of the big bucks!

No doubt you've heard the big announcement today from NCSoft, about the closing of the Austin office and the official creation of NCSoft West in Seattle. And while this is moving around a lot of personnel, it's also moving around NCSoft's goals. Known equally for their Triple A attempts and smaller, quirkier offerings like Dungeon Runners, NCSoft has decided that Triple-A is now the only way to go.

"This transition is really about ratifying a completely dedicated business to the triple-A titles," Reid said. "We would consider ourselves in the class of five-ish companies in the world that can be successful in this market. We are a leader here and we are doubling down in those efforts."

"If you are successful in this business, you are fabulously successful.

In so doing, NCsoft plans to shed some of their lighter fare, including "moving away from" Dungeon Runners, Reid said. He declined to say if that meant killing the free-to-play, humorous online game, saying only that there were no announcements about the game at this point.

Is this the end of Dungeon Runners? I sure hope not!
