NetDragon Websoft Inc., a China-based game developer, has teamed up with publisher Electronic Arts to develop a massively-multiplayer online game based on the beloved Dungeon Keeper franchise. Coined Dungeon Keeper Online, the MMO will be NetDragon's first MMORPG.
While many fans across the globe were hoping to get their hands on a new Dungeon Keeper game, Dungeon Keeper Online is only currently being developed for the Greater China region, which includes Hong Kong, Taiwan, and Macau. However, this does not rule out the possibility of a broader release for the MMO in the future. "Capitalizing our strength to create a strong gaming experience, powerful operating platform and unmatched expertise within China's online game market, we are confident that Dungeon Keeper Online will not only become successful in the Greater China region but also achieve remarkable results overseas," said Mr. Liu Dejian, Chairman and Executive Director of NetDragon in an official statement.
