publisher and South Korean gaming giant Kakao
announced this morning that it’s accumulated “over 550 million registered users across its games portfolio and services,” which includes everything from PC and mobile games to augmented and virtual reality games – over 1100 games in all. The press release stresses the company’s ambition to expand its daily players further and notes again that it will serve as the publisher for PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds
when it launches in South Korea next month.
This past summer, the corporation announced plans to consolidate its gaming services — its “cash cow” — into a single holding company, which it formally launched yesterday.
You’ll recall that during Pearl Abyss’ IPO conference in September, we learned that Black Desert specifically has brought in over $300M with almost 8M registered players and performs particularly well in the west. The studio also teased plans for four more MMOs.
