Cinderboy's translations over at MMO Culture reveal that TERA will not be online for much longer in Taiwan, Hong Kong, and Macau. OMG Digital Entertainment and Bluehole Studio could not work out a deal to keep the game live and servers will become inactive on November 18th.

All is not lost for TERA players in the region though as OMG will retain the player database they have and will turn that data over to a new publisher when Bluehole Studios finds one.

We'll have to keep on the lookout for more information on Bluehole's search for a publisher in the region and no estimated date of service restoration is currently available.

The issue is with the publisher, Gameforge has more anti-fans than players due to the way they manage microtransactions versus content updates. They prefer to load the game with sellables and stay constantly behind other regions on actual content on almost all of the titles on their publishing list. It used to be a half decent company but not any more. I doubt they will re-attempt in the region and it is more likely they will publish a combined international server for multiple regions and transfer the accounts. Once a game is tagged with the taint of a bad publisher they are pretty much screwed, the same happens in any region of the world. Kind of like how many of us hate perfect world in the us for pretty much the same reason they hate game forge.

I like this comment thread. I'm amused at how seriously people take themselves, and video games for that matter.

On topic: ... cool story :)

Well is Asia, and they have way more games than it is over in the U.S.
That is another reason why they are unable to keep up with the market there.
It is sad that there are many good games out there in CN, Korea,JP, but only countable ones are being released overseas.
The Asian companies afraid that the game codes they share for hotfix or updates might reveal the technique and might also given an insight to other countries and that is why they does not want to risk it.

Tera is a not so bad game though, why report this I mean if there going to find a new publisher like any mmo would do. Seeing it's tera I doubt they will have trouble finding a new publisher to pick it up soon.
