The Korean company KRAFTON published financial report for the fourth quarter of 2022. In addition to information about the income and success of the released games, projects under development were also mentioned in it. There are four in total:
Project BlackBudget is an ever-changing open-world PvPvE shooter that aims to provide an unpredictable and immersive gaming experience. The report states that the developers want to popularize the Extraction Shooter genre by leveraging PUBG’s development and support experience. Typically, this term is used in relation to games similar to Escape from Tarkov, so it is possible that we are waiting for a clone of the popular creation of Battlestate Games. The company is considering releasing the project on PC, consoles and mobile devices. The new Subnautica is a continuation of the adventure survival simulator that has gathered a huge number of fans. The developers promise to improve the gameplay and improve the overall quality. The game will feature a larger location, new monsters, and more ways to interact with the world. Project GoldRush is an action-adventure sandbox game primarily aimed at Western audiences. It will be an ever-evolving service game that will allow you to enjoy exciting PvPvE sandbox adventures alone or with friends. They promise dynamic action, rewarding progression, unique mechanics, a complex open world that is attractive to a new generation of gamers. Project Windless is an action RPG from KRAFTON based on the popular series of novels The Bird That Drinks Tears. Currently, the concept stage on consoles and determining the direction of development is being completed. To work on the game, the studio Krafton Montreal was founded, which is headed by the former game director of the shooter Far Cry 5, Patrick Meathy. In addition, the team includes Ian McCaig (Star Wars series artist), Gwangjae Song (Krafton art director), as well as Benoit Frappier, Martine Paradis and Frédéric Duroc from Ubisoft.
