Asiasoft Vietnam, the Vietnam publisher of MMORPG Ragnarok Online and HuangYi Online, has announced that game service will be terminated on January 24th, 2011.
Ragnarok Online is an online role-playing game based on Norse mythology in development by Gravity (Korea). Ragnarok Online was first released in Vietnam in May 2006 by VNG (Vinagame). The service provided by VNG was ceased on March 31, 2008. Asiasoft Vietnam has opened the beta of Ragnarok Online in November 28, 2008 and this game service will be terminated on January 24th, 2011. The reason for termination was that Asiasoft did not reach an agreement with Gravity.
HuangYi Online (HY Online or HE Online) is 3D MMORPG developed by China-based Chinesegamer International Corp. This game is based on a famous Chinese martial arts novel. The reason for termination was that Chinesegamer International Corp does not continue to develop this game and stop all service in the world.
Asiasoft is one of the largest publishers of free to play MMOs & MMORPGs in Vietnam with such hits as The Chosen, The Legend of Three Kingdoms online, Monster Forest Online and many others. While we sympathize with gamers who enjoyed Ragnarok Online and Huang Yi Online, we’re hopeful that Asiasoft will now be able to concentrate its efforts on bringing us Ragnarok Online 2 for 2011.
