Krafton, which now owns Playerunknown’s Battlegrounds, is working on a new game. The project will be based on the popular series of Korean fantasy novels, The Bird That Drinks Tears.
While there is no word on the game’s features or look, it is known that Krafton enlisted the help of Hollywood concept artist McCaig to create the look and feel.
“KRAFTON found something special in Yeon-do Lee’s book The Bird That Drinks Tears. I am honored to help visualize this wonderful world and its characters, as well as help introduce the novel to a wider audience around the world, – said Ian McCaig, – Collaboration with KRAFTON is one of the best I’ve ever had. I look forward to our further adventures and so that Yeon-do Lee can be proud of it. ”
The Bird That Drinks Tears is a novel series created and written by the acclaimed Yeong-do Lee. Mr. Lee is one of the best-selling fantasy authors in Korea with millions of copies. By the way, not only one game is being developed, but also other multimedia projects in the “Bird That Drinks Tears” universe, such as the mobile The Bird That Drinks Tears, announced in 2018.
