Crimson Desert has not switched to the MMORPG genre, Pearl Abyss said. The developer reiterated that the game will be an open-world action adventure.

A couple of days ago, Pearl Abyss' recruitment video suggested that Crimson Desert is now an MMORPG, not an action-adventure game as previously stated. 

Of course, this was a huge disappointment to many players who are eagerly anticipating the game but luckily, Pearl Abyss have offered a comment on the matter, confirming that the information in the presentation is out of date.

"Certain information in this presentation, including the genre of Pearl Abyss' new projects, were from past source materials and so have been removed," Pearl Abyss spokesperson told AltChar.

The team has since corrected and added a clarification to the video in question. Pearl Abyss confirmed to AltChar that the official genre of Crimson Desert is an open-world action adventure.

Crimson Desert was initially planned as an MMO game, a follow-up to the popular Black Desert but Pearl Abyss made a decision to change it into an action adventure with a full-fledged cinematic story.

That's probably why the community was so disappointed to see that the devs have gone back to the MMO genre but luckily that was never the case since it was all just a human error in the video and nothing more.

Crimson Desert does not have a release date at the moment. Pearl Abyss said in their latest financial report that they are working hard to wrap up the development by late 2023 but still can't lock on a release date.

Crimson Desert is expected to launch on PC, PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S.
