ESTsoft’s MMORPG <Cabal>’s official sequel is coming out not from ESTsoft?
At China Joy 2011, Moliyo(摩力遊), a Chinese developer, introduced <Cabal 2> officially and showed its play at the booth. You can watch how it looks like at here.
Actually <Cabal 2> is illegal and unofficial sequel of Korean <Cabal>. Moriyo used to publish <Cabal> in China in the past and developed its sequel unilaterally without agreement of ESTsoft. So it is nothing related with <Cabal> at all. Moliyo also noted that it is independent title. Then why does it use the exactly same name and number 2 beside it, huh?
What is even more funny is that ESTsoft did not recognize its development until we reported it to them in July 2010. They said it was a shocking affair and they filed a lawsuit for Mariyo’s breach of publishing agreement.
The official MMORPG <Cabal 2> is currently being developed with CryEngine 3 by ESTsoft and was first introduced at last G-star.
The Chinese <Cabal 2> is scheduled to launch commercial service within this year in China. No plan for Korea is decided. Let’s see how it ends.
