Despite The Callisto Protocol performing below expectations, Krafton will continue to invest in big games and new IP.
The Callisto Protocol appears to have fared much worse than expected, but that won’t stop Krafton from investing in new intellectual properties and big-caliber games , according to the company’s recent strategic plans.
Krafton’s idea is to “stand firm” on the plan to “secure new ones and expand our gaming intellectual property ” for the foreseeable future. The company says it is committed to sustainable growth and “strengthening global publishing capabilities,” the documents read.
In addition to the commitment to “web3 and Deep Learning”, a sector of great importance will therefore be the expansion of the portfolio on the front of triple A videogame productions, while maintaining PUBG in a prominent position as the company’s “highest priority”.
“To achieve this, now is the time to concentrate our capabilities in 2023 and emphasise our need to innovate and focus organizational capabilities, strengthen our publishing capabilities and systems, and continue investing in the future.”
Evidently, despite the sales below expectations of The Callisto Protocol, Krafton still intends to continue on this path, perhaps with greater prudence in terms of costs but in any case with large-scale productions also for the near future.
