Netmarble US joins Kabam, ex-president of Netmarble US Simon Sim to take over as COO

Rapid expansion is a major reason

The Netmarble US studio will become a part of Kabam on March 1st, 2022, according to the latest revelation from the developer, with Simon Sim taking over as Kabam COO.

 “I am very excited about this unification where we can bring together the expertise and resources of the two world-class mobile game sibling companies,” said Seungwon Lee, Kabam’s CEO, who took over the role last month after holding multiple positions at Netmarble since 2007, including co-CEO. “After the merger, Kabam will have the scale and enhanced capabilities to excel in game publishing and compete more effectively in today’s ever-changing market,” indicating the developer’s desire to expand and flourish.

This should trigger a lot of hype among fans. After all, Netmarble provides a plethora of games to choose from, like Marvel Future Fight, The Seven Deadly Sins: Grand Cross, and even BTS-inspired games like BTS World and BTS Universe, which join the fantastic roster of games like Marvel Contest of Champions and Transformers: Forged to Fight.
