After spending several years improving PUBG and above all to contribute to the launch and customs clearance of Battle Royale, now the developers of the shooter are ready to move on to something completely different. To reveal it is Krafton, who recently announced a new video game, based on a series of Korean fantasy stories very famous at home, or The Bird That Drinks Tears.
Translatable as “The bird that drinks tears”, the series of short stories was written by Yeong-do Lee and is dated 2003. The entire work consists of 4 volumes. “This ambitious project aims to bring the fantasy universe of tales to life”, the words of Krafton declared on the website of the new video game currently in development. To achieve this, the development team has decided to focus on several talents from the video game and film industry, as evidenced by the hiring of Iain McCaig, who has worked on blockbusters such as Star Wars and The Avengers.
“The Bird That Drinks Tears is a unique fantasy story, perhaps the most unique I’ve ever read and that goes on par with other great works, like Dune and The Lord of the Rings ”, McCaig’s words stated about the project, who then added that he had paused some personal projects to dedicate himself 100% to this new game. There is also curiosity about the type of game it will be: will it be a persistent online world, perhaps an MMO, or a completely single player title, where you will faithfully follow the path traced by the writer Yeong-do Lee?
The expectations for this work are therefore very high. Unfortunately, at least for now, we only have to be content with Krafton’s statements. The new game from the PUBG authors it seems very far away, but we can’t wait to find out more. We will update you as soon as there are more news on this.
