En Masse Entertainment Shutting Down - TERA and Closers Moved to Other Publishers
Yes, you read that correctly, En Masse Entertainment, after 11 years in the industry, is completely shutting down, much to the dismay of the general player population that play their games, leaving them wondering what exactly will happen to their favorite MMOs. En Masse took to the Facebook pages for both TERA and Closers, reposting the same message on both.
However, on the official Closers forums, a staff member, SingleBear decided to make a forum post titled “Closers Service Will Continue With Naddic,” Naddic Games being the developers behind the MMO. Apparently, Closers will feature 2 additional updates scheduled for August 31st and September 28th, after which the game will change hands over to Naddic themselves who will be self-publishing the game henceforth. This is unexpected and surprising, but I’m curious to see where it ultimately ends up going. TERA fans were not as lucky though as.. we weren’t given anything definitive. Will KRAFTON, the developers of TERA and the upcoming Elyon MMORPG take over self-publishing of the game? That’s a possibility, but considering their new partnership with Kakao Games that allows Kakao to publish Elyon within North America I highly doubt it. What seems most likely is the fact that Gameforge, who acquired the SEA publishing rights earlier this year will finally obtain full global rights to the game, publishing within SEA, Europe and North America. Regardless of where TERA ends up, you know we’ll be here to cover it!
