Gravity Issues Business Updates
Seoul, Korea, — March 15, 2010 — Gravity Co., Ltd. (NASDAQ: GRVY) (“Gravity” or “Company”), an online game developer and publisher based in South Korea, today issued its business updates.
Ragnarok Online II delayed to the fourth quarter of 2010
The schedule for the launch of Ragnarok Online II, a sequel to Ragnarok Online and massively multiplayer online role playing game (“MMORPG”), has been delayed to the fourth quarter of 2010.
Ragnarok Online II was originally scheduled to launch in the first half of 2010; However, Gravity has decided to postpone the schedule to the fourth quarter of 2010 in order to make the game better. The Company is planning to start commercial service of Ragnarok Online II in Korea in the fourth quarter of 2010 followed later by the other territories where Gravity has already entered into license and distribution agreements.
The Company has been conducting open beta testing of Ragnarok Online II since May 2007 and continues to upgrade and develop the game in response to market feedback received during the testing phase.
“The launch of Ragnarok Online II has been delayed on a number of occasions but we don’t want to launch it before it is ready and want to ensure that it meets the expectations of our players as well as those of our own.” commented Mr. Toshiro Ohno, the President and CEO of Gravity. “We will continue to refine Ragnarok Online II and look forward to providing our users with a high-quality experience.”
License Agreement for Canaan, a web browser-based game
Gravity has entered into a license agreement with Xpec Entertainment Inc., a Taiwanese game developer, to publish Canaan in Korea.
Canaan is a web browser-based casual MMORPG, which is played on a web browser and which does not require any client-side software to be installed. Canaan is currently serviced in Taiwan, China, Hong Kong and Macao.
Canaan, the first web-browser based game to be published by the Company, is expected to be released in the third quarter of 2010. The Company is planning to roll out several other web browser-based games.
