Yeah but this has nothing to do with the official servers. His work on it is for illegal servers i guess

People do not really important from game engine point of view, the number of characters online/moving at the same place is the factor here, 200 people can log in 4k char.

I remember when we had those cake events with 2k char in elven village, there was large lag and we cannot really move and I fear the better the graphics the worse it may get. However I am not an expert so I honestly curious about the opinion what advantage a new engine would offer next to the "shiny graphics".

Lineage 2 Remastered seems to be a real project in the works at NCSoft, according to a job opening listed on the company's careers page (first spotted by Reddit user Dylandel).

NCSoft is looking for a Technical Artist with expertise in Unreal Engine 4 Blueprint and Unreal Engine 4 material and custom shader. Despite the lack of an official announcement (NCSoft didn't appear at G-Star 2019), it really looks like Lineage 2 Remastered is going to be a massive overhaul project, one that has not been attempted before. The original game, launched sixteen years ago in South Korea, was based on the Unreal Engine 2.5.

There's literally no way to do this without 100% rebuilding the game from the ground up.

It would be a truly massive investment which NC will absolutely refuse to go in on when the potential for profit would be so infinitesimal on such an old game that has LONG since seen it's best times come and gone.
