@IfrianMMO said in WHen can we expect a EU release:
If by "EU RELEASE" you mean "official" EU support and ease of payment, hopefully soon.
If what you mean by "EU RELEASE" is a separated EU ONLY release of the game specifically published for and directed to the EU players then i hope that it never happens (Despite being European myself) because the PSO community and market is not big enough to stay profitable and competitive on two fronts at the same time.
We are not World of Warcraft or Final Fantasy with their multi-million playerbases, we are a niche game that has a horribly bad history in the West and has to stay united, profits-wise, to make this worth it and last longer than a year or two.
The population is already separated into multiple ships. In my opinion, the ideal situation would be for a couple of the currently unused ships to be located in Europe, not only because of lower ping, but also because it would be nice to have a place where we would be more likely to find players in our timezone.
