Kingsoft yesterday published an updated arrival schedule for its new online games in China. It says it will release four online games this year, and all the games will be developed inhouse.
Starting in the latter half of 2004, NABI Online will launch in September 2004, followed by Sword II in November 2004. Next year "Huan Xiang Chun Qiu" will be delivered to gamers in March 2005 and Sword III in June 2005.
This move, according to some professionals in the industry, is a clear sign that the company is trying to shift to network-based games.
