Earlier this year, PUBG developer and publisher Krafton announced it was going to be expanding a Korean fantasy novel called The Bird That Drinks Tears into a “multimedia franchise”, bringing renowned Hollywood concept artist Iain McCaig on board to help bring it to life. Beyond this, nothing was known about what the studio was cooking up, but now it looks like Krafton’s got a fantasy game in the works that’s reportedly like a “Korean Witcher”.
PUBG dataminer PlayerIGN has been reporting on a Krafton press conference held today – and in the South Korean language, it seems – on Twitter, and one of the topics that seems to have been covered is this fantasy novel-inspired IP. PlayerIGN reports that a game has been announced that’s inspired by The Bird That Drinks Tears, and that – similarly to what CD Projekt Red has achieved with Andrzej Sapkowski’s Witcher IP – Krafton is looking to expand this game into other media – for example, film and comics, according to the tweet.
According to a follow-up tweet, this mystery game could be a single-player, dark fantasy RPG, and in another PlayerIGN reports that Krafton has described this title as “Korean Witcher”.
