After rumors and later confirmation by Neowiz, we finally have the official word from Aeria Games / Gamigo about the cancellation of the EU / NA publication of Bless Online. 

Gamigo cancels negotiations on cooperation with Neowiz Games (Bless)

Hamburg, June 08, 2017 – Gamigo announces that the MMORPG Bless Online will not be published in Europe and North America. The cooperation between the Korean games developer Neowiz Games and the Gamigo group has been terminated by mutual agreement.

Unfortunately, the collaboration had to be cancelled because after extensive testing the game did not meet the quality standards of both Neowiz Games and the Gamigo group. Jens Knauber, COO of the Gamigo group, regrets this development: "Together with Neowiz we have come to the conclusion that the technical difficulties cannot be overcome, so we agreed not to complete the game for our respective markets. This has not been an easy decision for us and we put a lot of thought into this step. On the other hand, we have a number of interesting new releases coming up to complement our already strong portfolio, so our players can look forward to several new games in the near future." 

Gamigo will announce its upcoming games in a separate news before gamescom 2017.

Whether or not Neowiz will search for another Western publisher remains to be seen.
