Today Black Desert developer Pearl Abyss reached out with a press release to announce three new games currently in development.
The first will sound familiar, as it’s Crimson Desert.
While this isn’t mentioned, it sounds a lot like a possible sequel to Black Desert.
“Crimson Desert is an open-world MMORPG set in an epic-fantasy world. In a war for survival, three tribes will fight for control of the Pywell continent. Crimson Desert has been produced since 2018 by Jason Jung, former Game Design Director of RYL Online .
Working alongside Jason Jung on RYL Online , one of Korea’s most famous first-generation action MMORPGs, was
Dae-il Kim, the founder of Pearl Abyss. Eter Lee, former Lead Combat designer of RYL Online and C9 , is in charge of the action combat system for the title.”
The second game is Pearl Abyss’ first shooter, Plan 8. For this one we also have a description and an official teaser site.
“PLAN 8 is an exosuit MMO shooter, a title spearheaded by Minh Le as Technical Advisor, also known as the co-creator of the Counter-Strike franchise.
A trailer for Plan 8 , the first shooting game from Pearl Abyss, will be released at Pearl Abyss Connect. The game’s production is led by Seung-ki Lee, former Environment Art Director of Black Desert Online and Black Desert Mobile .”
The third game is, a bit different, defined as a “Collectible MMORPG” aimed at families.
“DokeV is a collectible MMORPG for all ages. DokeV is led by Sang-young Kim, formerAnimation Director of Black Desert Online , and Suh Won Choi, former Game Design Director of Black Desert Online .”
On top of that, we also get the tease of the upcoming closed beta test of Shadow Arena, a fantasy battle royale game for PC based on the previously-released mode in Black Desert Online.
Trailers and further information will be showcased at Pearl Abyss Connect 2019 on November 13 at 8:00pm PST, which will be livestreamed by the developer from G-Star in Korea.
