Crimson Desert's release date has reportedly been pushed back from 2024 to 2025 internally for an unspecified reason, with DokeV also being delayed.

The details:

  • According to Kim Jin-gu, a researcher at Kiwoom Securities (via InsightKorea), the release of Crimson Desert has been pushed "forward by one year to Q2 2025 from Q2 2024," which is said to have “exceeded the 3 to 6 months acceptable in the market.” It is currently unknown why the game has been delayed, but it is believed to be due to development issues.

  • Originally planned to be an MMO similar to Black Desert Online, Crimson Desert was first announced in 2019 as a single-player RPG for PC and consoles, impressing everyone with its high-quality visuals. It was later postponed indefinitely in 2021 and resurfaced in 2023 with a new trailer.

  • DokeV, Pearl Abyss' creature-collecting Pokémon-like title, is also said to have been delayed, and will now be released in 2026 or later after Crimson Desert. The developer has not made any public statements about the game since Gamescom 2021, when a gameplay trailer for the title was well received.
