Korean website GameFocus reports that NCsoft is planning to continue its “rapid pace” policy by undertaking private tests of Master X Master, its MOBA, in mid-March, followed by Lineage Eternal tests in the second quarter of 2016. NCsoft VP Kim Taek-heon says the “precise detailed schedule is still undecided.”
Lineage Eternal was in focus group testing in the latter half of 2015. In November, NCsoft didn’t show the game at G-Star and told investors that it had pushed full-scale closed beta testing off until 2016 while it adjusted to the market. It did not at that time address launch dates directly or confirm whether the game’s launch was still planned as a global one.
