Game Tales, a little-known Korean studio, today announced that it is working on a massive Unreal Engine 5 MMORPG for PC and mobile devices. As Unreal Engine 5 is not out yet, the team is using Unreal Engine 4.5 before making preparations to port the project over. Game Tales has only made small casual web and mobile games before, hence the announcement comes as quite a surprise. This is probably the first MMORPG reveal for Unreal Engine 5.
Rather than making a cross-platform MMORPG, Game Tales announced that the PC version focuses on large-scale multiplayer elements which is more suited for Western players, while the mobile version is focused more on auto-hunting and growth. This unnamed Unreal Engine 5 project is currently scheduled to launch in 2022, which is quite an ambitious goal.
