“With the successful launch of the AAA title AION, Gameforge has heralded the start of a new era for its free-to-play sector. Further AAA titles will follow in the coming months”, said Alexander, CEO of Gameforge.
Whether this growth continues or drops off rapidly is still to be seen. In the meantime, the development team are working hard on the upcoming 3.0 update which is set to bring a new level cap, new regions, additional mounts and the highly-anticipated housing system.
