The9 To Develop New MMO

31 Mar 2009 by Paul Younger
The company that operates World of Warcraft and many other games in China, The9, is to develop its own MMO.

The9, which has obtained licences to operate games such as FIFA Online 2, Hellgate: London, Ragnarok Online, Huxley, Guild Wars and of course WoW, is making an MMORPG called 'MUX'. The Chinese name has yet to be chosen.

Recent reports have suggested that The9 may be in financial difficulties following the delay of the most recent WoW expansion, Wrath of the Lich King. The tightening of restrictions of gaming in China is also said to be making things harder for the games company, but today's news looks positive as it suggests the company is still pushing ahead with new projects.
