Crimson Desert Delayed From Winter 2021 Release Window
Crimson Desert is a brand new open-world action RPG that was showcased during Game Awards 2020. It has been delayed by the developers.
Pearl Abyss is the developer behind Crimson Desert. They have already released a massively online multiplayer game Black Desert. Crimson Desert was their next major project that was initially slated to release in Winter 2021, but it has been delayed to an unspecific time frame.
The developers have made this announcement on their official Twitter account. Here’s what they had to say regarding this delay.
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 your 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.
Crimson Desert felt like a true next-generation action RPG. It premiered with a 5 minutes long gameplay trailer that was not just ambitious but also looked gorgeous. It felt like a mixture of games like Dragon’s Dogma and Shadow of War.
Crimson Desert currently doesn’t have a release date or confirmed platforms. It is likely going to be a current-generation exclusive based on the footage that we have seen so far.
