We firmly believe in India’s potential as a key player in the global gaming and technology industry, and our commitment to investing an additional $150 million over the next two to three years reflects our dedication to fueling this growth.

KRAFTON’s investment will aim to nurture local talent, foster innovation, and propel India into the forefront of the global gaming industry. The company has already launched three captivating game titles in the past year, including The Callisto Protocol, Road To Valor: Empires, and Defense Derby, aimed at delivering novel entertainment experiences to the Indian community while advancing the gaming industry as a whole. Through its upcoming investments, KRAFTON is set to redefine the gaming landscape in India, forging new horizons and elevating the gaming experience for players across the nation.
