Starting in December, Kakao Games expands its roster of games when it takes over as publisher for ArcheAge and ArcheAge: Unchained in the Americas, Europe, and Oceania. The new deal will mean faster updates aligned with the Korean release for the games' community.

Developer XL Games named Kakao Games as the new publisher for the franchise, taking over from Gamigo. The first step is a new plan for the MMORPG’s updates. From the time the new partnership begins, there will be what they’re calling a global build synchronization. For players, this means that updates and content will be released simultaneously with the Korean version of the game.

No more waiting or delays, hearing about what’s new on the Korean servers a while before they come to the other regions. ArcheAge and ArcheAge: Unchained will continue to exist for those who prefer one or the other, with some as yet unannounced changes to come to both.

In announcing the new publisher, an update from the Gamigo and XL Games reassured all that their progress, characters, and items will safely follow them in the service transfer. While there's no firm date yet on when exactly the takeover will happen, things have already been set in motion. The ArcheAge site on Kakao Games is now live. 

In a press release from Kakao Games, the global build synchronization is just the beginning. They promise more updates and other changes coming from the new deal to be announced in the weeks and months ahead.

With ArcheAge’s publishing change, things should at the very least be more fulfilling for those who want to get to the newest content faster. You can check the announcement on the AA Gamigo site for the current community, which is also set up for anyone who has questions on the upcoming changes to be able to ask them.
