According towards the inside info, Bluehole's core developer Park Yong Hyun will quickly resign, and it is now attending to relevant procedures.It's learnt that the resignation was mainly because Park Yong Hyun, who's Bluehole's CTO and TERA's development director, couldn't help Tera gold achieve set goals in the South Korean market but saw TERA criticized by players as over-hyped trash.
The disputes as a result of Mr. Park's resignation from NCsoft also tired Mr. Park physically and mentally. He used to function as the development director for Lineage 3 at NCsoft, so that as South Korean media disclosed, Bluehole and TERA came into being just because of Mr. Park's resignation from NCsoft, which caused NCsoft to file lawsuits against Mr. Park again and again for that disclosure of trade secrets.Park Yong Hyun proceeded to TERA's development and promotion with the help of NHN shortly after entering Bluehole, and launched the game's commercial service early this season. However, TERA witnessed its popularity worsen drastically and was criticized bitterly fewer than half a year after its commercial service launch, which let Mr. Park feel an immensely heavy burden.
According to Bluehole, they tried hard to persuade Park Yong Hyun not to leave, but finally consented to his decision to depart. Anyway, the quit won't affect Mr. Park's shares in Bluehole or his position as Bluehole's biggest shareholder. Presently, Tera items development team is being restructured, and a new competent development director will soon be assigned to dominate Mr. Park.
