Pearl Abyss Share Price Drops Nearly 20% After Crimson Desert Shown At Gamescom 2023
Pearl Abyss first showed a trailer with gameplay footage of their new game Crimson Desert on August 22 at Opening Night Live, an event dedicated to the opening of the gamescom 2023 exhibition. . The dislike counter shows a value of 670 negative ratings, which is a low number for this number of views. Almost all major gaming publications wrote about the premiere trailer, and under the trailer on youtube And twitter rave reviews from users prevail.
Some users note that the game looks like elements from GTA5, RDR2 and the Assassin’s Creed series have been added to Black Desert Online. But no one has a clear understanding of what this game is about. The question remains about the genre affiliation – is it a single or cooperative adventure? How will the squads be presented in the end and why is the character alone fighting opponents in all the gameplay shots? Why is there not even an approximate release date for the game and a list of platforms?
The gameplay trailer did not impress investors, and over the next three days (August 23-25), the share price of the South Korean company was rapidly losing price. It is difficult to say what influenced this in the first place: the absence of any tentative release date for the game or what was seen at a private screening in the business sector. The trailer itself could also have influenced, which does not contain integral gameplay, but presents a set of short scenes without immersion in context.
Pearl Abyss has previously stated that it plans to complete development of the game before the end of 2023, but financial analysts do not believe that this plan will be realized on time. And, most likely, a full-fledged release should not be expected even at the beginning of 2024.
In any case, we hope that soon Pearl Abyss will talk about the game and answer questions from the community.
