According to reports from Je-seok Jang, head of Black Desert’s Game Design Department, the team had not considered a real next-gen upgrade for the MMORPG on PS5 and Xbox Series X | S, but having received many requests in this sense, he was then convinced to proceed along this path, even if there is not yet a period for the release of the update.
“With the arrival of the new consoles, many adventurers have asked us for exclusive versions for the Xbox Series X | S and PS5,” explained Jang, “To be honest, we weren’t completely ready to embark on a project of this magnitude in terms of preparation and priority over other commitments.
As we recently reported, our focus has always been to provide as stable an environment as possible on Xbox One and PS4, while perfecting optimization first and foremost on these consoles. “
However, “See how much our adventurers have insisted on asking a next gen upgrade, we are happy to announce that we will proceed with the development of the PS5 and Xbox Series X | S versions from now on. “In any case, the developer has also specified that it will take some time before we see them in action, with Pearl Abyss intent on doing a good job and thus taking all the time necessary.
In any case, the next gen upgrade on PS5 and Xbox Series X | S will be free for all those who own the game on PS4 or Xbox One.
