Crimson Desert is not an MMORPG, as explained by the developer and publisher of the game Pearl Abyss. The studio, also responsible for Black Desert, explained that the new game has a different focus and that it had little impact on the routine of the online game still in operation.
Pearl Abyss CEO Jeonghee Jin comments that the development of the new game is part of a separate project and that the Black Desert team continues to update the content as often. He also stressed that the new game focuses on story mode, since the team already has an MMO available. Still regarding the online game and its updates, Jin says the team remains very focused on community feedback.
Jin also explains that the simultaneous work in the two games ends up helping in the discovery of possibilities with the company’s own graphics engine, which would be proving very positive at the moment. And for Black Desert fans who may be concerned about a possible abandonment of the MMO released in 2014, he says with all certainty that the game will remain alive for at least another 5 years and that it will not fail to celebrate its 10 years of existence.
