Korean game company Bluehole Studio today is announcing a new Seattle subsidiary called En Masse Entertainment that will adapt and publish online games for Western markets.
Bluehole was founded in 2007 by veterans of Korean game giant NCsoft. Similarly, En Masse is led by veterans of NCsoft’s Seattle office.
En Masse Chief Executive Jae-Heon Yang and Chief Operating Officer Patrick Wyatt were both previously chief technology officers for NCsoft.
Others at En Masse include Publishing Vice President Chris Lee, a veteran of Microsoft, Electronic Arts and NCsoft, and Senior Producer Brian Knox, who was formerly producer of NCsoft’s “Aion.”
The first title to be released by En Masse will be Bluehole’s “Tera,” a massively multiplayer online role-playing game coming later this year. A shot of “Tera”:
