It is with a heavy heart that we officially announce that Aeria Games (who merged with Gamigo a few months ago), will no longer be publishing Bless Online. Many websites reported the rumor that Neowiz and Gamigo canceled their contract. Confirmation came on the Korean site for Neowiz, following an official statement by Aeria Game's
❝Gamigo announces that the MMORPG Bless Online will not be published in Europe and North America. The cooperation between the Korean games developer Neowiz Games and the gamigo group has been terminated by mutual agreement.
Unfortunately, the collaboration had to be canceled because after extensive testing the game did not meet the quality standards of both Neowiz Games and the gamigo group. Jens Knauber, COO of the gamigo group, regrets this development: "Together with Neowiz we have come to the conclusion that the technical difficulties cannot be overcome, so we agreed not to complete the game for our respective markets. This has not been an easy decision for us and we put a lot of thought into this step."
While this news is disheartening, many of us here at Bless Roleplay have been waiting for this game for years. Some of us still remember when no official publisher for the NA/EU had been announced! While this is an unfortunate setback to our plans to get immersed in this world sooner rather than later, it doesn't mean that we will be giving up! The site will continue to run and the Discord will always be available to those who have joined this community. We will continue to keep you updated as the status of Bless moves forward and when a new publisher is announced!
