We have been understandably nervous about Astellia Online following December’s news that the game’s South Korean version was shutting down. That sort of event doesn’t usually bode well for games’ western counterparts, especially when you consider that Astellia just launched overseas in 2019, and even once you remember that Barunson implied the SK sunset was a result of Nexon’s messes and not due to affect the west.
Either way, there may be a stronger hint of hope for the longevity of the current version, as Astellia announced this past week that it is hiring French and German community managers for its European team. It’s just for a pair of native speakers (and players) who are willing to work remotely, but even so, it’s a sign of growth rather than withering.
Astellia recently won Massively OP’s award for best 2019 MMO theme in the Video Game Music Awards.
We’re hiring French and German CMs!
