Robotoki’s upcoming open-world online multiplayer title, Human Element ditched its free-to-play model & ended their publishing deal with Nexon.

The studio has decided to adopt a premium price for their first game, which is set to release in November 2015.

“As the game evolved we realized that the elements that make Human Element the most fun would be hindered by keeping it a free-to-play experience, Robert Bowling founder of Robotoki studios, told Gamasutra.

Therefore, we made the decision to switch to a premium experience for our players; which also meant that working with the premier publisher in free-to-play was no longer the best partnership fit for the game we were creating.

“Nexon and Robotoki have come to a mutual decision to end their publishing agreement for the game Human Element, said a Nexon America representative.

As development of the project progressed the direction of the game naturally evolved, and it no longer aligns with the Nexon portfolio.”

A new publisher has been found and Robotoki will make an announcement next month.

Robotoki, an independent game company formed by Robert Bowling after he left Infinity Ward following the release of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3.

The game takes place 35 years after the zombie apocalypse began. It features a “cinematic, immersive, first-person experience, and combines innovative new streaming and segmented world massively multiplayer online game technologies to achieve a large open-world MMO experience while maintaining the high visual fidelity of a first-person shooter”.

Human Element is set for a November 2015 release on PC, PS4, and Xbox One.
