MMORPG Code-Named Project W Announced

Whenever you develop something, it’s always important to give it a really cool project code-name. Such is the case for Project W, the recently-announced MMORPG project announced by Kakao Games.


The MMORPG is being developed by former NCSoft chief art director Hyung-Jun Kim and Bluehole Studios, which is more popularly known for TERA. Project W is described as looking to “bring back the fundamental joys of playing an MMO” according to the announcement, and will be releasing to North America and Europe as part of a global initiative for Kakao Games.

“I see this event not only as a major cornerstone in our global expansion, but as an opportunity for both parties to grow,” said Kakao CEO Kye-Hyun Cho. “I am thrilled to be working with Bluehole, one of the best blockbuster PC online game developers in the industry.”

Information about Project W will be released at a later date.
