It doesn't take as long as some of you seem to think to port a game to English. A sandbox MMO specifically, though this is quest driven progression it may take a bit longer. To give you an idea, a game like Guild Wars 2 plans on implementing its full spanish translation within 6 months.

This game could easily sign a deal with a NA distributor and be released before the end of the year in North America. I personally see the game releasing in Korean(where it will probably flop due to being a sandbox) by the end of this year and being released in North America around this time next year. I also think that the game will release in North America and the EU around the same time frame. Sandbox players tend to be split almost 50/50 for games like Darkfall, Eve, and MO in their EU and US populations, so I see no reason for them to release in EU before NA as it does not make financial sense.

I do find it interesting that this game is a Korean developer targetting the sandbox community. Also interesting to note that Darkfall recently signed a deal with an Asian investor to release their sandbox f2p in Asia. I think it's a good direction for the sandbox community either way, as Korean developers definitely have more sandbox style game mechanics in their products than the western community themeparks.

From what has been shown ths game looks amazing for the sandbox crowd. The second coming of the sandbox messiah. But, like some have said 2013 is the earliest. I think a lot of developers are nervous of asian based mmos and its appeal in the west, coupled with the fact that it appeals to a niche crowd. Maybe not niche on this website, but you get the drift. One can only hope in the future we see it. In the meantime lets hope Vanguard goes FTP sooner rather than later.

People do need to realise this game is still in Closed Beta in Korea.

I see people saying here this game still has no NA/EU publisher, maybe they do already but don't want to make it public yet as the game is still in the closed testing phase. Who knows, maybe they already have a publisher?

They have already announced Tencent in China, GigaMedia for Taiwan/Hong Kong/Macau, and that they are in negotiation with a Russian firm as yet unnamed. 

So no, it isn't too early to wonder about, but it IS too early to panic about a NA/EU publisher.
