The free-to-play MMORPG League of Angels has just received investment to expand their media presence onto the big screen. A League of Angels film is in the pipeline, according to Youzu, the publisher.
The success of League of Angels has apparently made Chinese film creators excited at the prospect of making even more money, as the investment for this project is totaled at over 400 million dollars. This is a bold move by the publisher to put so much faith in the title, but it has already been a large success in Asia, bringing in more than 25 million dollars per month. It will be interesting to see how the fans react to the film, and if it will enjoy the same successes as the free-to-play MMORPG.
Currently, Youzu are one of the big players in publishing in the Chinese market, so it comes as no surprise to see a company of this size at the helm of such a large venture. We will be sure to publish any more news on the release of this League of Angels film as soon as we receive any more information from the publisher.
