Big changes are afoot at NCsoft – the Korean-owned MMO firm has announced the formation of a new subsidiary which will take over the management of all its teams in the West.
NC West will boast a brand new corporate structure and a new HQ in Seattle that will be open by the end of 2008.
The move comes to give NCsoft "a dedicated focus towards becoming the world’s premier western publisher of MMOs" the company said in an official announcement. Existing publishing and development subsidiaries NC Interactive, NC Europe, NC Austin, and ArenaNet will be led as a unified organisation under the NC West banner.
These changes are also responsible for the downsizing of the NC Europe development team.
