Publisher NCSoft looked into the casual and free-to-play MMO scene but they decided it wasn't for them, and they 'completely refocused' on big projects.
Titles like "Aion, Lineage II, Guild Wars" are what NCSoft are keen on. Fewer releases but "with higher quality" is their strategy, "targeting" promising MMOs.
"Our focus is really triple-A MMO games - big games like Aion, Lineage II, Guild Wars and so on," said NCSoft West's managing director Veronique Lallier.
"That's the key focus for NCsoft West - we had been looking at other kinds of more casual games, that were free-to-play or browser- or small client-based, but back in 2009 we decided to completely refocus our efforts on what we're good at."
"We know how to launch big MMOs, and I think our focus has been very successful. Our recent financial results were good, and I think for us it's key to provide to the market a new gaming experience - something very exciting for the players. We tried different genres of MMOs, but we decided to focus," he added.
