Established in March 1997, NCsoft quickly grew after their first product, a massively multiplayer online role playing game (MMORPG) named Lineage, became a smash hit with gamers throughout Korea. Since then, NCsoft has brought Lineage into several other markets, establishing a presence in Taiwan, China, Japan, Hong Kong, and the US. As NCsoft develops new products and expands into additional markets, its goal is to provide gamers with the world’s largest catalog of innovative online entertainment. Currently, the company’s flagship product, Lineage, a major cause of the explosive growth in online games in Asia, is recognized as the world’s largest online game and boasts 3.2 million monthly active users and three hundred thousand concurrent users.
NCsoft hopes that their diverse line-up of online games, from the fantasy genre (Lineage, Lineage II, Kingdom Under Fire: The Crusaders) to the comic book genre (City Of Heroes) to science fiction and other genres (Exarch and Shining Lore), satisfy the varying needs and tastes of gamers all over the world. NCsoft is committed to spearheading the worldwide online games industry by bringing original game content to life and delivering premium service to its customers.
