G-Star is the largest Korean Game Exhibition organized by Korea Internet Digital Entertainment Association (K-iDEA). Today, they announced that the current progress of the event and the exhibitor’s list in a press release. Unfortunately, IMC Games (company that is making Tree of Savior) has not confirmed as an exhibitor and is not in the exhibitor’s list.
For G-Star’s 10th year anniversary, G-Star 2014 is set to break its previous year’s record again with a 2,558 registered exhibitors this year, up 297 booths (13%) from 2,261 booths 2013. Registered BTB booths are 1,026 booths this year, up 137 booths (13.5%) from 1,026 booths in 2013. Exhibitor’s registration deadline was 26th September 2014. Total participating companies increased 24 companies to 536 companies from 512 companies in 2013.

IMC Games’ Participation?
Previously, in Hangame (owned by NHN Entertainment) Expo in 2011, IMC Games showcased “Project R1” and shared many details about the game. That is when spiritual successor of Ragnarok Online got caught on with the game.
Two years later, IMC Games attended G-Star 2013 to showcase their latest MOBA game, WolfKnights. They also shared Tree of Savior and even released the first TOS game play video due to the massive interest of the game.
This year (2014), it seems that IMC Games will not be participating G-Star 2014. NHN Entertainment who used to publish Tree of Savior materials is present in the exhibitor’s list though. However, in January 3, 2014, IMC Games’ contract with NHN Entertainment was nullified. So unless IMC Games have re-established their contract with NHN Entertainment, it seems like we will not get any Tree of Savior from G-Star 2014.
This may disappoint many fans who expect some sort of news especially during Korea’s largest game expo. Before we dump into conclusion, we will wait for G-Star to release the full game list for the exhibition in 2014. There is no official statement from IMC Games yet.
