With the merger between Korean internet firms Kakao and Daum Communications back in 2014, the Netherlands-based Daum Games Europe was one of the subsidiaries brought into the Kakao family.

Now, the publisher of MMORPG Black Desert Online will be rebranding as Kakao Games Europe, as it diversifies from PC development and embarks on projects for console, mobile, and virtual reality.

Western focus

The Kakao corporation is best known for its messaging app KakaoTalk, and is setting its sights on the global games market as its next step.

Alongside its new projects, Kakao Games Europe will continue to operate Black Desert Online.

Furthermore, Kakao has announced that it has also established a new publishing office called Kakao Games USA. The new team is said to be focused on launching "new game services in North America."
