Black Desert spin-off Crimson Desert release date delayed indefinitely
Crimson Desert will be delayed indefinitely, announces Pearl Abyss in a tweet.
Black Desert is one of the most visually stunning MMORPGs in the market right now. That’s why a lot of fans are excited for its upcoming spin-off game, Crimson Desert. The polish of a game like Black Desert takes a lot of resources, however, and such masterpieces cannot be rushed. Just like most other games experiencing delays, Crimson Desert will be delayed as devs feel like it needs more time in the oven. In their announcement tweet, Pearl Abyss relays: “We have decided that we need to dedicate more time to adding new ideas for an even deeper, more enriching game. Therefore, in order to create the best possible experience, all the while ensuring the health and safety of everyone involved in delivering the game, we have decided to delay Crimson Desert‘s release.”
Pearl Abyss didn’t have an exact release date on when the game will be coming out. However, the devs say that they will provide an updated schedule in the future.
Crimson Desert will serve as a prequel to Pearl Abyss’ widely successful game Black Desert Online. In contrast to Black Desert, Crimson Desert will be a single-player, open-world action-adventure game. It was first announced in December 2020 during The Game Awards, with a target release of Winter 2021. While a new release date has not yet been announced, Pearl Abyss’ tone in their announcement suggests that fans don’t have anything to worry about the game’s future, as it seems like Pearl Abyss really is just biding their time for the game’s release.
