Free-to-play publisher Nexon will begin acquiring all outstanding shares of Thingsoft, the South Korean online games studio behind the FIFA Online series.

“Thingsoft has a wealth of experience in the F2P business, and a successful track record of developing AAA content,” Nexon president and CEO Seungwoo Choi said, in part. “Building on our history of successful collaboration together, this transaction leverages the strengths of both companies by providing access to Thingsoft’s developmental capabilities and an exciting pipeline of new titles, and Nexon’s scale and global distribution platform.”

“We look forward to working with the talented Thingsoft team to deliver a robust portfolio of titles to even more players around the world and across platforms.”
