Cabal Online was first released in South Korea in October 2005. The game was later released from closed beta testing in Europe in July 2006,and in December 2006 it was announced that the game and all subsequent versions had become free-to-play. In North America, OGPlanet had picked up the license for the game and open beta testing began on February 1, 2008. It was also stated that the full release would most likely come by the end of February. On February 28, 2008, the game officially launched in North America, while closed beta began in South-East Asia. Gameforge published Cabal Online in Germany on December 3, 2009. The service in North America provided by OGPlanet was ceased on March 31, 2010, as the company did not reach an agreement with ESTsoft, while the latter subsequently re-established North American servicing directly.
