Louisville, CO â€“ June 15, 2005 â€“ NetDevil, developer of the groundbreaking action space combat MMG Jumpgate, announced today the upcoming merging of its European and American servers. The move results from the discontinuance of Mightygames as NetDevil's European partner.
"To help ease the transition from the European server to the American server, we're offering a free month of play from July 1 to August 1 to all transferred accounts," said Scott Brown, President of NetDevil. "The free month will give the transferred players time to adjust to their new environment, and is a way for us to thank them for their continued loyalty to Jumpgate."
"We are thrilled to be able to welcome the European players to the American server," continued Brown. "We look upon this merger as a unique opportunity to expand the Jumpgate community with a more diverse player base."
The merge is planned for June 30. No changes in user data on the European server will be transferred after June 27. Transferred European players may access their accounts beginning June 30.
NetDevil's existing contract with Mightygames will officially end on June 30.
