NEOWIZ Games announced its plan for DIZZEL, a military-themed third person shooter (TPS) game. The game is being developed by NEOWIZ Games’ in-house studio. NEOWIZ Games has been publishing shooting games such as Special Forces, AVA, and Crossfire in Korea.
Videos demonstrating graphics, gameplay and other contents are now available on the DIZZEL teaser site, and the first CBT is scheduled to start from the December 15th in Korea.
Neowiz Games has come a long way. Neowiz Games impressed the industry with a profit of 16.3 billion Won (approx. US$ 12.6 million) in the first quarter of 2009, a whopping 145% increase over the 6.7 billion Won (approx. US$ 5 million) it earned during the same period in 2008 and a 27% increase from the previous quarter. Revenue has risen 15% to 58.3 billion Won (approx. US$ 44.9 million) from the previous quarter.
The company is attributing the overall rise to the increasing profitability of its blockbuster sports and FPS games such as FIFA Online 2, Slugger, Special Force, and A.V.A as well as its international businesses.
