Kakao Games revealed their plans for 2021
November is the time when studios share their financial status for the quarter and their roadmaps for the rest of the year and following year. Kakao Games, the studio that purchased the license for the distribution of Odin Valhalla Rising, published their numbers and roadmap telling what they plan for the remainder of this year and next year. The company significantly increased its game offerings over the past year, and net profit improved by 697.4% compared to the same period last year. Compared to the last quarter (April to June), net income improved by almost 60%. Mobile games are key, as games like Guardian Tales contributed the majority of the revenue.
And what interests us most is that Kakao announced the release of Odin Valhalla Rising for the second half of next year. The launch will be only for Korea and will be playable on PC and mobile devices. There are no details about the monetization model yet, nor was there talk of a global launch, but if all goes well, according to Kakao, next year we can start seeing Odin Valhalla Rising in action.
