According to a press announcement from Pearl Abyss, the company has raked in over $1B in gross sales of Black Desert Online in just under four years. In addition, Pearl Abyss CEO Robin Jung also reported that over 10M players from 150 countries had played Black Desert across PC, XBox One and mobile.
Jung said, "We’re proud of what this achievement represents – the hard work and dedication from our teams over the past four years and the support from a community of fans around the world. With over 30% of gross sales for Black Desert stemming from mobile platforms, we’re confident that sales are accelerating. Pearl Abyss is optimistic for the future of Black Desert and we look forward to launching Black Desert Mobile globally by the end of the year."
The report also remarks on the synergy between CCP Games, also part of the Pearl Abyss conglomerate, and BDO developers. "With a common focus on MMO titles in EVE Online and Black Desert, though, both companies create synergy by organizing workshops to share knowledge on game development and strategy across the board."
Pearl Abyss also has plans to bring BDO Mobile to the world in 2019. Mobile revenue for BDOM has generated 30% of the $1B total and that's without a global release!
