Crimson Desert has been delayed to an unspecified date.

The official Crimson Desert Twitter posted a message from the team behind the game announcing the delay, citing the need for more time to add new ideas to the game. Pearl Abyss says this delay will allow them to create a deeper and more enriching game.

An important message from the #CrimsonDesert team:

— Crimson Desert (@CrimsonDesert_) July 29, 2021

“We are currently hard at work developing Crimson Desert, which is rapidly evolving with new adventures and exciting experiences,” the delay announcement reads. “However, we have decided that we need to dedicate more time to adding new ideas for an even deeper, more enriching game.”

The message goes on to explain that the team decided to delay Crimson Desert to let the team create “the best possible experience” while also ensuring the team is healthy and safe in doing so. You can read the announcement in full in the Crimson Desert tweet above.

Crimson Desert was announced in November of 2019 as one of three new Pearl Abyss games (Plan 8 and DokeV were the other two games announced). It’s being designed by former RYL Online designer, Jason Jung, and was originally set to be a spin-off of Pearl Abyss’ popular Black Desert Online MMORPG.

It became an independent project in development and is now set on the fictional continent of Pywel, where players will take control of mercenaries as they try to survive the game’s hostile environment. Crimson Desert will feature both single-player and multiplayer content.

If you watch the Crimson Desert reveal trailer, you’ll see the main character of the game, Macduff, who leads the mercenaries in Pywel. If you’re just now hearing of Crimson Desert, check out some screenshots and details revealed soon after the game’s reveal and then watch the first Crimson Desert gameplay trailer shown at least year’s Game Awards.
