"On behalf of the Pearl Abyss team, I would like to say thank you to our Thai Adventurers who actively play our game, as well as those who came out to support us at TGS 2018," stated Pearl Abyss Head of Business Youngchul Ham. "We've come to learn and appreciate so much about Southeast Asia during our 10 months of service in the region. We look forward to adding more exciting game contents and continually growing with our Adventurers."
