Officials from free-to-play MMO game company K2 Network (War Rock
) have announced a new publishing partnership with electronics giant Samsung to release K2's MMORPG Red Stone
in five countries, including North America, this summer.
In addition to North America, the partnership will also see the 2D fantasy MMORPG debuting this summer in South America, Turkey, India and Poland. Developed by L & K Logic Korea Co. Ltd, Red Stone
is currently available in Japan, where K2 representatives note that the game is played by more than one million users and earns over $4 million monthly.
Joshua Hong, CEO and Co-Founder of K2 Network, commented that Red Stone
is a “great addition” to the company's product portfolio. The executive was recently interviewed
