SEOUL, Oct. 13 (Korea Bizwire) — Netmarble Games, South Korea’s top mobile game developer, said Friday the number of pre-registrations for its mega-hit title, “Lineage 2: Revolution,” in North America and Europe has surpassed the 1 million mark.
Netmarble started accepting preorders for the mobile role-playing game from the official website Oct. 13, before its launch during the fourth quarter of this year, the company said. The exact launch date has yet to be decided.
“It is very unusual for a mobile game to receive more than 1 million preorders in just 30 days,” said a Netmarble Games official who asked not to be named.
The game has gained huge popularity after its release in 12 Asian countries, including Japan, by becoming the No. 1 app in terms of sales both in the Google Play Store and Apple’s App Store.
Netmarble Games, established in 2000, has produced some of the most successful mobile and online games, including “MARVEL Future Fight,” “Seven Knights” and “Everybody’s Marble.” The company successfully debuted on Seoul’s bourse in May.
