Nexon announced today that it has locked down the global publishing rights to Robotoki's upcoming survival game Human Element, which is expected to launch late in 2015.

The publishing deal follows Nexon's decision to make a 'strategic investment' in Robotoki early last year.

“We are excited to work with Robotoki to bring this exciting game to consumers in North America and around the world,” Nexon CEO Owen Mahoney stated in a press release announcing the deal.

“This announcement marks an important milestone in the strategic partnership we formed with Robotoki in February 2013 and furthers our goal of developing groundbreaking, AAA quality free-to-play games.”

Ex-Infinity Ward employee Robert Bowling founded Robotoki in 2012 after resigning from his position as creative strategist for the Call of Duty franchise.
