Ragnarok Online dev studio begins hiring for new 3-D mobile Ragnarok title

    
13

For those who are eager for a new Ragnarok Online title, we also hope you’re eager for it to be on mobile. Gravity Neocyon, the subsidiary company under the game’s original developer Gravity that developed mobile titles like Puzzle and Dragon, is reportedly beginning a hiring blitz for a new mobile MMO based on the Ragnarok IP.

This new title, code-named Project S, will be a 3-D MMO built in Unity. The game’s development was first announced in June 2020 but details have otherwise been scant to this point. That, presumably, will be changing soon once the studio’s hiring is complete and creation of the game begins in earnest. All the same, it’s still likely going to be a number of years before we hear more about this one, and further doesn’t guarantee that we’ll see it release outside of South Korea. Still, we can at least look ahead.

They are not making 1 new mobile game on Ragnarok Ip they have 8 new games planned in total some already in beta.

Ragnarok Online: First Love which is like a second game to Eternal love
Ragnarok Battle Academy (BR + MOBA)
Ragnarok Origin
Ragnarok X: Next Generation
The Lost Memories: A Song of Valkyrie
Ragnarok Project S
Action RO2: Spear of Odin

All of them planned for mobile relase. My question do we need/want this many games I love Ragnarok online but I rather Just have does mobile game we have

Ragnarok M Eternal love
Ragnarok tactics (no not the psp game but a mobile game with the same name)
Ragnarok Labyrinth
Ragnarok Poring merge

so in total there will be 11 damn phone games on the Ragnarok IP.

Ragnarok Crusade: Midgard Chronicles at least is planned for PC.

Im not 100% about all this but this is where I found that info so take it with a pinch of salt.

It is a sure way to kill an IP.

It’s the way they choose to monetize RO. Ragnarok was always rampant with P2W on the official servers, besides the botting, hacking and terrible customer service.

Gravity simply don’t care about PC players anymore, and to be fair, the return they get from them is not worthy the investiment. Mobile is way more money for way less effort.

Yeah I Can see why but still 11 mobiles kind of seams overkill in my opinion and I do wonder what ever happen to games like Ragnarok DS or Ragnarok Odyssey or even Ragnarok tactis on PSP I mean all 3 where not bad.

I mean i loved ragnarok DS and Odyssey was a fun monster hunter clone maybe not the best game but as a fan of both monster hunter and Ragnarok it was a good fun game.

AND no im not against them making a mobile game. But we don´t ned 11 mobile game, instead they could do like Black desert mobile or EVE echoes and make 1 good/decent.

Why is it ALWAYS a mobile game?!?!??! Sigh, I understand that the mobile gaming market is insanely huge and far bigger than all the other video gaming markets combined but come on… will they ever return to their roots?

Most likely never well they still keep updating the original but they now that game is not making them money so mobile games is the only thing we will get. Maybe well get one of the mobile games ported to PC but yeah nothing more than that.

Didn’t they release the original game on android too? I think I read an article about that.

Well they did and got removed not more than 2-3 years after I think it was it disappeared fast.

Considering the fact smartphones now have quite powerful APU and companies like Intel, AMD and Nvidia are now working to enter smartphone market with their own SOC and the presence of a console like Switch which is literally an overblown smartphone, it seems like smartphone gaming will become quite viable among actual gamers in very near future. So I don’t think these companies will ever want to return to their roots.

I was really more hoping they might look at the success of something like Genshin Impact which can have a mobile client but also a full fledged PC client as well. I personally can’t stand gaming for long periods of time on mobile and only find it best suited for word/puzzle type games.

I don’t disagree with them going for the mobile market, but it’d be nice if they tried to extend their reach to PC as well with their games.

Another one? I was aware of Gravity wanting to make a new RO mobile to substitute Eternal Love but for the love of God, can we get a PC version already?
