NCsoft promises Lineage Eternal’s closed beta testing next year

    
21

Over the summer, NCsoft was conducting small-scale focus-group testing for Lineage Eternal, another sequel for the bafflingly popular and profitable Lineage MMORPG. In fact, two more such tests were planned for this year. But in NCsoft’s recent earnings call, the company revealed that the full beta won’t begin until next year:

Lineage Eternal will also undergo the full-scaling testing from the first half of next year.

In response to an investor question about LE’s testing, NCsoft clarified that it’s the closed beta testing that has been pushed to next year and that the company is adjusting to the market in the meantime. The post-CBT schedule is anticipated to be much shorter. Direct questions from a Morgan Stanley rep about the global nature of the test and game went unanswered.

Expect more news from G-Star later on this month.

Rozyn ArtemisiaWS ” What will be really funny is if L3 comes out and they still prefer L1.”
I wouldn’t exclude it, they’re in any case two different games I expect, not just a cool graphics version of L1. Plus I guess a lot of people stick to L1 also cause they have an high level character/riches/etc already there, community and all.

ArtemisiaWS Rozyn Yeah, I figured that was implied. L1 makes so much money in the East still I don’t think they care all that much if we like it here or not. Basically, people shouldn’t be expecting large amounts of Westernization with the Lineages, lol. What will be really funny is if L3 comes out and they still prefer L1.

Rozyn “but L1 is doing hugely well after all these years, maybe players prefer a more isometric viewpoint”
it’s doing hugely in Korea, in the west it’s been closed ages ago. Maybe it will be the same for this, huge over there and short lived in the west.

Lhumierre Zariarn There was one some time ago that had a 2.5d camera.  The game’s name escapes me but it never made it out of beta.
