Apparently, it has been three years since Riders of Icarus arrived in North America, but apparently that time also represents the end of Nexon’s involvement with the title as publisher. The game’s official site has announced that Nexon’s publishing contract has come to an end, with Valofe Global taking over the service and operation of the title by the end of August. Exact details about why the changeover is occurring and why the contract was not renewed or extended are not offered; it may have something to do with the existing problems Nexon is already having.
Players will be asked to work through an account transfer process to ensure that no data is lost during the transition between companies, with further information provided once the transfer service is ready to go. There are also apparently plans for Valofe to introduce more content after the service change, which should be exciting for fans. It maybe disruptive for fans, but hopefully the change will work out well for players in the long run.
