Bless Online has had quite the journey. First, it was coming to the US. Then publisher Gamigo put it on hold in order for the developer, Neowiz, to iron out some of the game’s issues. A while later, Gamigo announced that they’d canceled the contract altogether, saying:
Reasons for publishing contract termination
Last September, our partner Aeria Games (AG) shared two major concerns: Ingame performance and combat system. We believe these two need to be polished before coming into the western market. We, Neowiz Bless Studio (NBS), have been working on the two issues, but figured out that more time is required to achieve the satisfactory condition.
This additional development period was not aligned with AGs’ business milestone, and of course we respect AG’s opinions. Thus, both parties have agreed to terminate the publishing contract of Bless in EU/NA.
Neowiz, though, isn’t one to quit, it would seem. The developer sent word to MMORPG.com saying that despite the setbacks, they still want to bring Bless to the US. So, I suppose a Blessing we shall have.
Future EU/NA milestones
You must be curious about future Bless in EU/NA as we ended our contract with AG. NBS believes the EU/NA Bless fans are very valuable to us so we commit to deliver game updates directly to you. We will surely present you with improved Bless in the future.
