Founded by former employees of Nexon, Neowiz was established in 1997, and started by servicing a SNS that became a huge success (Sayclub). Starting in 2003, Neowiz began to focus on the area of online gaming, launching its own game portal Pmang. Through Pmang, Neowiz published a variety of casual games and FPS, those of which include Ava, Crossfire, Special Force, and R2Beat. It is expanding its presence in the online game genre by having split up Neowiz into Neowiz Games and other subsidiaries, such as Neowiz Development Studio, Neowiz Internet (in charge of SayClub), Neowiz Invest and Neowiz INS.
