search for a Western publisher has made news
on more than one occasion
in recent months. As it turns out, though, the fantasy sandbox MMO will be published in North America and Europe by the same company publishing it in its native Korea.
That company is Daum
, one of South Korea's largest internet conglomerates
. News of the deal was confirmed by Steparu via an email exchange with a representative of Black Desert
development studio Pearl Abyss
. While there is no information available regarding Western beta dates, Pearl Abyss began working on an English client
over seven months ago. Black Desert
Korea will kick off its third closed beta
sometime in late August or early September.
