New Crimson Desert Gameplay Is Coming To Gamescom, Pearl Abyss Confirms

The single-player RPG has been in the radar of many players since its reveal.

Story Highlights

  • The tidbit was spoken by the CEO in Pearl Abyss’ FY2023 Q2 earnings conference call.
  • Crimson Desert is slated for a launch on PC, PlayStation 5, Xbox Series S, and Xbox Series X.

Crimson Desert has been on the list of highly awaited entries that were revealed way ahead of time. The title is still a bundle of mystery for most gamers, but a new update by Pearl Abyss ― the devs behind the massively successful MMORPG project Black Desert ― has confirmed that the single-player action RPG will seemingly have new gameplay footage announcement in the upcoming Gamescom event this year.

Pearl Abyss unveiled the glad tidings in its FY2023 Q2 earnings conference call and stated that it is planning to reveal new footage of the title after a long while. 

In particular at Gamescom this year we plan to disclose new footage of the game that will actually showcase the real gameplay of CD. We will show you how Crimson Desert is being developed and perfected and show you the level of quality that we are aiming for,” said CEO Heo, Jin-Young.

Crimson Desert is set for a launch on PC, PlayStation 5, Xbox Series S, and Xbox Series X. It is also possible that Pearl Abyss finalizes the release date for Crimson Desert alongside the planned footage in the Gamescom show.

A recent update did confirm that the title is targeting a late 2023 release and is now in the polishing phase.

The Gamescom event will start from Wednesday, Aug 23, to Sunday, Aug 27. It will feature a variety of other titles like the usual norm. Regardless, Geoff Keighley affirmed that this year is going to mostly emphasize giving updates on known entries instead of new IPs and games.
