En Masse Entertainment- publisher of TERA, The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance, and Stranger Things 3: The Game- have announced their closure.
The announcement came via TERA’s Facebook profile, rather than their own Twitter profile or website. The statement reads as follows.
“En Masse Entertainment began more than 11 years ago. We started out as a small team, committed to making the highest quality games that we could. Along the way we built a world-class community, who showed nothing but love for the content and worlds that we created. Because of that support we were able to continue to build games that we are proud of with the best people in the industry.
Today, it is with a heavy heart that we begin the process of discontinuing the business of En Masse Entertainment. Our focus in the coming weeks and months will be on our team, helping them to find new opportunities, and on our games, to ensure a seamless transition for you.
If you are in the industry and are looking for the best talent, please email [email protected]
For those of you that are interested in Tera or Closers, there will be news in the coming weeks. Rest assured, support for those titles will continue.”
En Masse Entertainment was founded in June 2018 in Seattle, Washington; as a subsidiary of South Korean developer Bluehole Interactive. In 2018, Bluehole then founded and came under the Krafton Game Union. The reason for En Masse Entertainment’s closure was not disclosed.
TERA (now “developed” by Krafton) is now being published by its European publisher Gameforge 4D GmbH. Other games formerly under En Masse Entertainment are now being published by their developers. We will keep you informed as we learn more.
