Rumors of Lost Ark Mobile Surface
The West doesn't even have a version of Lost Ark for players yet, but rumors are beginning to swirl in Korea that a mobile version of the game may already be in the works. According to media outlets, Smilegate is looking for developers with knowledge of Unreal Engine 4 (the PC version is built on Unreal Engine 3) to fill jobs in animation, scenario and combat animation and client development. Smilegate has waved away the rumors stating this is a "normal recruitment drive".
Before everyone gets bent out of shape, Smilegate is still working on Lost Ark based on its recruitment site, including one for a Client Developer with experience in both Unreal Engine 3 and Unreal Engine 4, though yet more rumors point to a possible upgrade to the original similar to what is currently being done with Blade & Soul.
Maybe we'll hear a Lost Ark western release someday.
