Nexon merges two studios, dumps another as part of ongoing restructure

It would appear that Nexon is keen on smooshing together some of its studios in the interests of “organically integrating the know-how and resources of each development corporation through the restructuring of its affiliates” according to a press release. I’m not entirely sure what the heck that means, but it does mean that Nexon has bought all of the shares of its standalone studio Nexon Red and merged that with its subsidiary developer Boolean Games.

Boolean Games, for the record, is the development studio behind the mobile action RPG Darkness Rises, while Nexon Red is chiefly responsible for titles like the mobile MMORPG Alliance vs. Empire.

It’s unclear what this new merger of studios means for the future of either game, but the reference to integrating both teams together certainly seems to suggest they’ll be working in concert in some fashion. And hey, at least none of them got sold for a dollar.

Again: This year is shaping up to be the most awesome shitshow.

Well it isn’t blatant shutdowns and cancellations so… I guess that’s a win? First win of 2020 for them? Good first step, maybe…?

Looks like they decided to focus on Mobile gaming, dumped the Second Act ‘Black Sheep’ Chris Farley that was Goops or Gloops or Beep-Boops, and are hoping to god that merging their two successful Mobile teams will shrink costs and bolster profits like they were Final Act ‘Tommy Boy’ Chris Farley…

… I’ve… been kinda re-watching old Chris Farley Movies.

It is getting hard to keep up. So, Nexon itself was being shopped around. Or, did some big conglomerate snap them up?

They were trying to sell but were unsuccessful? Or weren’t able to come to a satisfying agreement, not sure. But they haven’t been able to find a buyer yet.

If I recall they have given up actively searching for a buyer for the time being.
