The newly announced MMORPG is known right now only as Project W and according to the official press release, "aims to bring back the fundamental joys of playing an MMO."
The game will be headed by several veterans of the genre including Project Director Hyung-Jun Kim, a former Chief Art Director from NCSOFT (Guild Wars 2 developer). Both parties appeared very excited by the partnership and offered up their takes.

"I am thrilled to be working with Bluehole, one of the best blockbuster PC online game developers in the industry. I see this event not only as a major cornerstone in our global expansion, but as an opportunity for both parties to grow."
