The extremely popular MMO Lost Ark should actually come to us in the West this year. The developers now have a blog post announced on the game’s official page that the title won’t be released until the beginning of 2022.

A technical alpha was held in June of this year, which allowed the first testers to try out the title. After that, the developers were very busy translating texts, fixing bugs and preparing the infrastructure for the servers. As you write in your post, there is still a lot of work to be done to give the title the quality that your players see “to earn”.

The release of the title has been postponed, but interested players will still get a chance to play Lost Ark this year. There will be a closed beta for the game from November 4th to 9th and feedback from the community will help in the further development of the title. Lost Ark Founder’s Pack buyers will have guaranteed access to the beta, while anyone else will be able to check out the game’s page for register this and with luck you will receive a key.

The developers also state that they want to publish an update on previous development work every month in the future “more open” to be with the community. In addition, the official forum and an official Discord server for the game will open their doors this October, where players can share and discuss their experiences in the closed beta.

This announcement received rather negative reactions on Reddit. Some users speculate that the title has just been postponed so that it doesn’t compete with Amazon Game Studios’ new MMO, New World. Amazon Games also acts as a publisher for Lost Ark for the West.

Regardless of whether this is actually the case or the developers really need a little more time to put the finishing touches to the title, it is definitely a shame that the waiting time for Lost Ark has now become a little longer.
