You... do know that Zenimax Online Studios revealed they're developing a new IP and are looking for people with 'MMO development experience' to work on it, right? https://www.vgr.com/new-ip-elder-scrolls-online-developers/ https://www.tweaktown.com/news/63561/zenimax-online-making-new-mmorpg/index.html https://massivelyop.com/2018/10/17/...ng-for-a-project-based-on-an-exciting-new-ip/ Let's look at other MMORPG developers: Arenanet: GW1 (2005) → GW2 (2012) Daybreak: Everquest (1999) → Everquest 2 (2004) → Dungeons & Dragons Online (2006) → LoTRO (2007) → DC Universe Online (2011) Cryptic: City of Heroes (2004) → Champions Online (2006) → Star Trek Online (2010) → Neverwinter (2013) → MTG MMORPG (TBA) Zenimax Online Studios: Elder Scrolls Online (2014) → Unknown MMO Project (TBA) Bluehole: TERA (2011) → Devillan (2015) → Ascent: Infinite Realm (TBA) So, we can add: Pearl Abyss: Black Desert (2014 open beta, rolled into official release in 2015) → Crimson Desert (TBA) / DokeV (TBA) Based on other developers, we can probably expect a new MMORPG from Pearl Abyss 5+ years after Crimson Desert launches, but very likely in less than 10 years. We still know almost nothing about CD as an MMORPG. Blizzard is the only major long-standing MMORPG-producing developer I can think of that hasn't at least attempted to make a new MMORPG, and that's likely because they're on the top and really shouldn't do anything to jeopardize that while they're there. Pearl Abyss also said that they'd continue development on BDO and that there's more to look forward to in the years to come. They have more than half a thousand workers, so I've been thinking they can handle putting a crew on BDO and pretty much give us the same amount of developers there've always had since they expanded so significantly. What're your opinions on that, though? Are you worried more about CD taking players away? I'd say that's a pretty legitimate fear unless CD ends up extremely different from BD.
