DokeV: Pokemon Violet & Scarlet competitor has been sacrificed

Developed by Pearl Abyss, DokeV could have positioned itself as a real alternative to Pokemon Violet & Scarlet if its release had not been delayed too long. Instead, he will totally miss the mark and fall behind.

DokeV will not face Pokemon Purple & Scarlet

During’a conference callHeo Jin-young, CEO of PearlAbyss indeed claimed that a good number of developers who worked on DokeV have been moved to the MMO Crimson Desert. The other big game in development.

Internal changes that therefore upset the studio’s entire schedule. Thereby, DokeV will miss 2023 and won’t see the light of day until 2024. The latter doesn’t even have a release window to cling to. While on his side, Crimson Desert is also impacted by this turnaround and will not be released until the second half of 2023.

Despite everything, according to Heo Jin-young, the developments are going very well. Crimson Desert simply became the studio’s top priority. He also points out that it is a little too early to say more, but that Pearl Abyss will not hesitate to communicate on its games as soon as they are ready.

DokeV and Crimson Desert are being developed according to our internal development schedule. However, this year our core team is diving into the development of Crimson Desert. We will do our best to provide additional information about DokeV as we progress.
