I am Jae-Hee Kim, the Executive Producer of Black Desert Online, Pearl Abyss.
We would like to extend our sincerest gratitude towards all Adventurers for your continuous support and advice.
Today, we the Black Desert Online Development Team want to greet you dearly in written words.
Since our grand launch in March of 2016, we started out with 36 servers in 3 worlds which later combined into one mega server, one world. Thanks to all of your support and passion, we added many more servers in the following years to end up with a whopping 49 servers in total as of 2017 today. And we would have to of course mention the successful launch on Steam earlier this year. Along with the continued server additions, Black Desert Online has had countless updates up to this point, only to better serve our loyal community.
We realize well that such progress would not have been made if it weren’t for your much love and interest. “Thank you” alone cannot express our appreciation towards you all.
We would like to take this opportunity to inform you of the upcoming updates and some of the contents that we are currently working on.
Since the CBT/OBT in South Korea in 2014, Japan and Russia in 2015, NA/EU in 2016, Taiwan and South America in 2017, and soon-to-be joined China, our service territories pretty much cover almost all of the globe.
To be able to provide each region with new updates every week, well-focused development and intense coordination with the Quality Assurance Team are extremely crucial.
For weekly updates, both development and QA work needs to be done within 5 days. The actual time in which the team can solidly work on the actual development is only about 2 days per week.
We always spend a good amount of time reviewing after each update and listening to our Adventurers. Therefore, we have been mulling over your feedbacks that implied that our updates lacked in-depth quality.
