South Korean game company NCSoft will speed up in switching games to mobiles games next year, powered by the success of the mobile games in 2017. Their plan is to continue the formula of success of the mobile game “Lineage M,” a mobile game that utilized the intellectual property (IP) of the original PC game “Lineage.”

According to NCSoft on Thursday, “Lineage M” has recorded 7 million accumulated members since its release on June 21, 2017 and its daily sales surpassed 13 billion won on July 1. This is the largest sales record within the shortest period of time among the mobile games. “Lineage M” became the No. 1 in the highest grossing game and the No. 1 in the most popular game on Apple App Store seven hours after its release.
