Perfect World Entertainment adds division for console games

Online role-playing game publisher Perfect World Entertainment is growing with a new division that will focus on making console games, the company announced today.

To date, the Redwood City, Calif.-based publisher has released a number of free-to-play massively multiplayer online RPGs exclusively on Windows PC, including Forsaken World and Star Trek Online. Perfect World's new console-game branch will work on titles for both last-generation and new-generation systems. The company plans to bring some of its existing games to consoles, as well as its upcoming titles.

"Perfect World Entertainment has long been the leader in free-to-play PC titles," said Alan Chen, Perfect World CEO, in a press release today. "Bringing our titles to consoles is a natural progression for us, and we can't wait to set a new standard for console MMORPGs and other genres."

Perfect World's newest game is Cryptic Studios' Neverwinter, which was released earlier this year.
