Crimson Desert, the new open-world action-adventure from Pearl Abyss, the studio behind Black Desert Online, has been delayed, with no forecast for its release, originally scheduled for the winter of 2021.
Crimson Desert delayed to an unspecified release date
The studio Pearl Abyss, unfortunately, confirms that its medieval-fantasy action RPG title Crimson Desert will not be released in 2021, instead the game has been delayed indefinitely to a release date not yet known.
The news was advanced by the development team, who shared a message through Twitter, which is increasingly common these days. In a message that has become familiar to players, the team thanks all fans for their patience, while justifying the delay with the need for more time to improve the gaming experience.
Since Crimson Desert’s gameplay trailer reveal last year, the response we received from the community has been a huge source of encouragement for our team. We would like to thank you for the amazing support and enthusiasm you’ve shown for our reveal.
We are currently hard at work developing Crimson Desert, which is rapidly evolving with new adventures and exciting experiences. However, 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. We will provide an updated schedule in the future.
Thank you for the ongoing support We wish you and your loved ones the best of health, and we’ll keep working hard so that we can meet all of you soon in Pywel.
