MMO Culture is reporting that several Korean gaming web sites (no links provided) have announced that Neowiz has indeed cancelled the publishing contract with Aeria Games. Aeria was set to bring Bless Online to both North America and Europe this year. Indications are that the Japanese version of Bless will become Neowiz's priority to prepare it for launch later in 2017.
This is continued bad news for a western release of the game. In April, Russian publisher 101XP announced that servers would close on May 25th for an undisclosed amount of time "pending revision".
There is still no official word from Aeria Games or its parent company, Gamigo. We'll keep you posted as the story continues to develop.
