History

In 2003, AsiaSoft launched their service of Ragnarok Online for the Thailand region.[2]

In 2012, AsiaSoft launched their service of Ragnarok Online II for the Singapore region, expanding service to the Thailand region afterwards in 2013.[3] They eventually expanded their services to include Malaysia, Vietnam, and the Philippines.

In 2014, AsiaSoft acquired Level Up! Games Inc. and launched Ragnarok Mobile from NEOCYON in Thailand.

After 2 years of service, AsiaSoft ceased Ragnarok Online II services for the Malaysia, Singapore, Vietnam, and Philippines regions and merged RO2 accounts that have opted in to move to the North America server (iRO2). RO2 services continued for the Thailand region for the next several months until the thRO2 server eventually shut down in 2015 July.[4]

On 2016 April 1, it was announced that GRAVITY has ended their contract with AsiaSoft and so they will cease service of their Ragnarok Online servers on 2016 June 30.[5] Thus ending 13 years of service for thRO and the end of AsiaSoft's exclusivity of Ragnarok products in their contracted regions.
