Devilian Nanus Pet giveaway

Fate of Devilian Currently Unknown

Success can bring about strange circumstances and odder casualties. If we were to poll people on the first games that come to mind for Trion it might be Atlas Reactor or Rift. Ask the same about Bluehole and likely the answer is TERA.
The oft-forgotten shared child is the Diablo-like Devilian.

The recent issue, raised on the forums and reported by our friends in both Massively OP and MMORPG, is regarding the fate of Devilian in the light of PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds huge successes. A recent tip to MMORPG expressed concern over a Windows 10 issue that has so far remained unresolved.devilian

There’s also concern that Devilian may not be getting support from its creators anymore. This has come about because of a complex business web. Trion publishes Devillian in North America and Europe. The Bluehole subsidiary that created Devillian and worked on the mobile version has been renamed to the PUBG Corp and its clear focus is upon PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds. Bluehole themselves are working with another publisher in Kakao Games for the upcoming A:IR.

Players have been left wondering what is to come and what they can expect from the future. Will there ever be a fix for the Windows 10 problem? Sadly all Trion can say is that they are in active discussions about the game. Does this mean that the end is nigh or is this a case of a lesser known game suffering neglect due to a newer more popular younger sibling?

Speaking to MMORPG a representative for Trion said, “We are still in active discussions with Bluehole Ginno to resolve the Windows issue, but there’s unfortunately not be much I can say at this point. Talks regarding support for the game are ongoing, and we’re hoping to have more information for Devilian players soon. We’ll be sure to let you know when we can.”

We will keep our eyes on it as it unfolds but given the focus in the PUBG Corp on the new golden child, I wouldn’t hold out hope for good news in the long term.
Who knows what may happen with the tangled web, but the signs aren’t looking good right now.
