ArcheAge/NCSoft Partnership Hinted At For European Distribution

    XLGames‘ sandbox MMO ArcheAge is getting a lot of attention from western gamers, eager waiting to find out if the game will be coming to their shores any time soon.
    A poster on the forums did an interesting little bit of sleuthing that seems to link XLGames with NCSoft‘s European office. A partnership between the two would make sense; XLGames co-founder Jake Song used to work for NCSoft, where he played a major role in the development of Lineage.
    But what elevates this news above mere rumor is who tipped off GAMEBREAKER about it — namely, a representative from XLGames. When a company directly points you toward a rumor about its product… well, do the math.
    Our source also confirmed that XLGames is looking for a North American publishing partner for ArcheAge, so we might still have a little while to wait on that front.
    But seeing — and practically confirming — the news about the game’s likely publisher in Europe should at least grant hope to English-speaking fans that the game will be making its way to our shores sooner, rather than later

    If NCSoft pick this game up I will wet my pants.Only doubt is if its true then why would they need someone to do NA? as NCsoft can do both NA and EU?

    Unlikely but if it happened I would be very happy.
    I don't care who takes on AA as long as it remains the same game just translated and don't start milking the community (rules out Activision and EA immediately)

    I know. You should have done it then made a guild only server. Where the best guilds in Europe were personally invited by us for one big showdown in the AA world.
