From the article: "It looks as though Sega has no plans to bring Phantasy Star Online 2 to Western markets after all. TSSZ is reporting that a source close to the publisher has revealed that while the game has been "fully localized" for an English release, that localization is aimed at English-speaking regions in Asia and not European or North American audiences.

The source speculated that Sega may be concerned about PSO2's potential profitability in the West but was clear that whispers from its contacts in the company in no way represent an official cancellation of a Western release. Phantasy Star Online 2 has had no visible presence in the Western games community since it was shown at the 2012 Penny Arcade Expo."

Well isn't that something? Good job Sega *rolls eyes*

Wish I could say this was a surprise, but it isn't really. Just wait for the Hong Kong/Mayalasian English release and get onboard then. That's my plan at least.

Having been keeping watch on content announcements as they roll them out it would be a fare assesment that Sega is concerned with the licensing nightmare that would doubtless happen if they were to launch the game with all content that presently exists therein to non-Asian markets.
