Known as Project DH from G-Star 2016, Dragon Hound is a role-playing action game with a science fiction theme developed by DevCat. Dragon Hound is one of the few PC games that South Korean big gaming company Nexon is aiming to become a multiplayer group online game instead of the traditional MMO.
This famous product is built on the advanced graphics technology Unreal Engine 4 to create a beautiful world. Entering the world in the game, players will have the task of hunting violent dragons with horses, weapons, armor, cannon, etc. The highlight of the game is that weapons and armor are made in a huge style. The suits are worn into the character to make it feel like living in medieval Europe.
However, recently, Nexon has revealed its intention to stop developing this game. The cause of this incident has been confirmed to be related to the internal restructuring orientation of Nexon, which started a few months ago. The management team reviewed all the ongoing games and shared that Nexon is in need of more success than before. According to recent financial reports, this cult game company is having a negative growth compared to the same period last year. This is why the company made this decision.
It is also reported that Nexon will strongly scale up new projects after completing internal restructuring and game cancellation as a necessary step for development. According to another source, the latest financial reports were released yesterday for July, August and September, with sales declining in business operations around the world. How will Nexon recover after this big crisis?
Nexon has reviewed and planned a total of 22 projects since September with the participation of external consultant, Humin Wonder Holdings. Paused projects include Devhound’s Dragon Hound, Wat Od’s Maple Odyssey, Nexred’s Project M, Durango and One Studio small projects.
