Pearl Abyss is internally preparing 4 projects right now. Two games are in development in which aim to be released in the second half of 2018. The other two aim to be released in 2019 and 2021.

    Why make one good game when you can make 5 worthless ones!

    Yeah! And why ever make more than one car model?! Clearly more = useless. Better not have more than one kid either, since the spares would obviously be worthless! ;)

    My SWTOR referral link for those wanting to give the game a try. (Newbies get a welcome package while returning players get a few account upgrades to help with their preferred status.)

    Feel free to send me a message if you want a guest pass to try Black Desert Online as well!

    I'm guessing a couple of those 4 games are probably going to be mobile games.  Which is fine for me, but I know a lot of people won't even give mobile a chance.

    One of them might be the mobile BDO game that they showed before.

    Sure but Blizzard started with a few actually complete games before branching out and making 4 new ones while never finishing developing the first.

    Have you ever noticed that their stuff is shit and your shit is stuff?

    Blizzard is a rather atypical game company in an atypical position.

    It is smart business, if you can pull it off. Blizzard has an unusually comfortable quantity of eggs such that it can fill many baskets with them at virtually no risk.

    Other companies in the MMO business, not so much.

    If Pearl Abyss can pull it off, that will be all well and good for them. They must take care, though, that they don't become another successful game company destroyed by their own ambition.

    I'm guessing the title would be more accurate if you replaced "games" with cash shops.

    I hope at least 3 of them are survival PvP games.

    We dont have enough of these.....

    The last one can be a hero FPS arena shooter....



    Joking aside, looking forward to these

    This is great news to me. I really like BDO, it is a super high quality game with a lot of features. I'm just hoping they continue that trend as opposed to going onto a churning out crap route since they got success with one game.

    1 survival game
    1 battle royale
    1 MOBA
    1 Shared world action RPG

    Because we don't have enough of the first three and the fourth...well, marketing FTW!

    Well we know one of those games is the mobile version of BDO. I am going to take a guess one will be a MOBA, and a CCG. No idea on the others.

    4 "mmo" games or 4 games? I suspect the latter. With the exception of their mobile black desert game.

    It is quite vague but it can also mean games based off of MMO's?

    They are Battle Royalle survival PvP Hero Shooter MOBA-esque... And there is a mode for playing soccer with cars.
