Mobile MMORPG Lineage 2M was released in Taiwan last week and has already found success. According to the Korean portal newswatch.kr, in this country the game took first place in popularity and in-game purchases on Google Play. App Store details are not reported.
“This is a record achieved in the week since the servers were launched on the 24th,” said an NCSOFT spokesman.
Taiwan is considered a strategically important country for NCSOFT, ranking fourth after China, Southeast Asia and Japan in the ranking of domestic game exporters as of last year.
Lineage 2M’s success in Taiwan was predicted even before launch. This is because Lineage 2M has received a lot of attention as the Lineage franchise has gained recognition among Taiwanese users thanks to the success of various games (Lineage, Lineage 2, Lineage M, etc.). The number of pre-registered users has reached 3.5 million.
In the future, there will be a global release of Lineage 2M, but there are no exact dates yet.
