Lineage III is an upcoming massively multiplayer online role-playing game (MMORPG) by NCsoft. It is part of the Lineage series. Although recent sources have misconstrued that Lineage Eternal is, in fact, Lineage III, the two titles are not the same.[1] On November 8, 2011, NCsoft officially announced Lineage Eternal as the sequel to the first Lineage, released in 1998.[2] The first gameplay videos debuted at the G-Star 2011 gaming convention in South Korea on November 10, 2011.[3]

Lineage III was originally anticipated to use the Unreal Engine 3, but after reports of a code exploit by an NCsoft employee back in 2009, a representative from the South Korean company has since stated that NCsoft will instead develop an entirely new proprietary engine.[citation needed]

In August 2013, NCsoft announced that it was preparing to roll out the beta schedule of Lineage Eternal by the end of 2013, after which two projects that they have been working on will be announced.[4]
