During a recent investors' call, Nexon revealed its "pipeline" of games coming to both PC and mobile devices. In the pipeline for PC is Titanfall Online, Battlerite and Moonlight Blade. The mobile pipeline, however, is more interesting, with several MMOs making the cut: Elsword M, Mabinogi Mobile, Dungeon Fighter 2D Mobile, MapleStory Blitz, Tree of Savior Mobile Remake and Final Fantasy XI.

Also during the call, Nexon spoke about Boss Key's LawBreakers and how the game came in "below our expectations" leading to a large Q3 impairment loss. In fact, CFO Shiro Uemura said that the impairment loss from Law Breakers "actually accounts for the majority of that amount" in Q3 2017. You can read more at GameSpace.
