South Korean developer Pearl Abyss, best known for the MMORPG Black Desert Online, announced the Crimson Desert delay. The studio cited the need for more time and suggested that the COVID pandemic also played a role in the delay.
Since the Crimson Desert gameplay trailer was unveiled last year, the response we’ve received from the community has been a huge encouragement to our team. We want to thank you for the amazing support and enthusiasm you showed for our unveiling.
We are currently hard at work developing Crimson Desert, which is rapidly evolving with new adventures and exciting experiences. However, we’ve decided that we need to spend more time adding new ideas for an even deeper, more enriching game. That’s why we’ve decided to delay the release of Crimson Desert in order to create the best possible experience while ensuring the health and safety of everyone involved in delivering the game. We will provide an updated schedule in the future.
Thank you for your continued support. We wish you and your loved ones good health and we continue to work hard so that we can meet you all soon in Pywel.
As you may recall, Crimson Desert was originally unveiled at G-Star 2019. Our Kai Powell was on site and managed to interview Jason Jung, the lead producer of Crimson Desert.
At The Game Awards 2020, Pearl Abyss announced a change in design direction from the original MMORPG design to an “open world action-adventure game” with cooperative elements.
Crimson Desert is an open-world action-adventure game that combines elements of narrative single-player games with online multiplayer functionality. The game is built on Pearl Abyss’ next-generation engine to deliver high-fidelity graphics and game features and provide players with a fully immersive gameplay experience.
However, there is a series of new Crimson Desert screenshots below. Enjoying!
