    They just made a game and look at how far they have come because of that game.

    I dont know about Black Desert being the sole reason. I thought it was mentioned some time ago that Pearl Abyss was invested in other things as well?

    They wanted to do a hairdressing thing if I recall. I don't know if they've actually done it though.
    Regardless, this is about the gaming part of the company. They've had some good growth there. I mean, they've had to add servers several times now on just the NA/EU versions of the game alone... there's not many MMOs that can claim this a year after launch.

    NOT TRUE, the article you talk about is about Kakao, since Kakao games publishes the game in EU/NA, but Kakao has multiple venues, from Games to Taxis, etc.... all can be seen at http://www.kakaocorp.com/en/main

    So no IT IS NOT Pearl Abyss that has hairsalons :)
