The initially weak ratings for the horror game The Callisto Protiocol caused KRAFTON shares to collapse.
The horror game The Callisto Protocol has been kidnapping players on Jupiter’s moon Callisto since Friday. In the year 2320 you have to escape from a maximum security prison full of mutant creatures.
The debut of the Striking Distance developer studio, which belongs to the South Korean company KRAFTON, received mixed reviews from the trade press and gamers after its release. On the review page Metacritic The Callisto Protocol currently has a rating of 75 (Xbox Series X|S and PC) and 76 (PS5).
As a result, KRAFTON shares were down 8.41 percent on the Korean stock exchange. This puts the stock at its lowest level since November 11th. Noisy Serkan TotoCEO of Tokyo-based gaming industry consultancy Kantan Games, investors were apparently hoping for better performance:
“The Callisto Protocol’s Metacritic score is in the mid-70s, apparently too low for Krafton investors who were hoping the IP could become a new mainstay for the PUBG company.”
