    So, we have a lot of MMO's released in the recent years and very few managed to really stand out.

    I'm wondering if A:IR will have what it takes. It certainly looks beautiful, but so did many other. Other games like these generally failed mainly because of their lack global support. They failed to build a strong brand throughout the international community.

    So I'm wondering where is this game being made available? You're going global? Or just US/EU/Asia?

    There are huge markets often being underestimated by developers, like Brazil (South America in general) and Philippines/Malaysia. These people love MMO's. Philippines/Malaysia are generally covered because they are relatively close to China/South Korea, which are a priority market. But South America is always underestimated. Games like Black Desert failed because they offered poor support in emergent countries: they had the game released in Brazil but the servers were located in NA, terrible ping made the game unplayable and lead to rage in community and general backlash for their brand in the long term. It's like they think they can release poorly optimized products because people in those countries aren't as developed as other priority markets like US/EU, I don't know. So my advise for you is if you're going to release it, go all in. Half assed products will backfire.

    For Kakao it's:

    ABOUT US
    A:IR is a game developed by Bluehole, a Korean company, and licensed for Oceania, North America and part of Europe by Kakao Games Europe B.V.

    Source: The bottom of this website.
    I don't know which parts of Europe will be included/excluded, but wouldn't be surprised if it gets a similar approach as BDO...

    It'll obviously get released in KR too, wouldn't be surprised if CN/JP/TW get servers as well.
    Apart from that, don't know.

    Maybe Black Desert failed in Brazil, to be honest I don't really know but the product itself is a huge success, the statistics speaks for themselves and the recent Steam launch brought a lot of new players.
