Nexon was first formed back in 1994 and is responsible for several early MMOs including Dark Ages and Shattered Galaxy. Eventually the company split, leaving its older titles to KRU Interactive while the new studio developed free to play games supported by optional micro-transactions. The 2003 hit MapleStory developed by Wizet propelled Nexon to international fame and fortune. They continue to publish games developed internally and by other studios.
Nexon acquired the MMO developer and publishers Ndoors on May 4, 2010. Nexon also acquired GameHi on May 28, 2010. Both companies continue to run as subsidiaries of Nexon corporation.
Nexon is a privately held company.
