Blade & Soul developer has a new MMO coming out in 2024

Gematsu, project lead Seeder Jaehyun Bae said that NCSoft wanted to “create a new genre that is completely different from the recently popular looter shooter or battle royale,” drawing inspiration from media like Dune, Blade Runner, and Total Recall for its themes. Strangely for an MMO, Project LLL will apparently have a predefined cast, each with their own name, background and motivations.

It's an interesting enough concept, though I wonder if this is a project that will ever see the light of day. The gameplay demo is polished, albeit a little stuttery, but I feel like we've seen plenty of games announced this way that vanish into the aether soon thereafter.
