The developers behind Tarisland have told VG247 that it stands by its game as “an original MMORPG with a fresh IP”, following numerous comparisons to World of Warcraft were made towards the game earlier this year.
Tarisland’s reveal trailer released back in January only three days after Blizzard’s partnership with Netease came to a close. The resulting fallout forced World of Warcraft out of the country, which was swiftly followed by the worldwide reveal of Tencent’s own fantasy MMORPG. However, speaking to VG247, Tarisland producer Yangmin states that “We had already planned to issue the trailer at that time.”
“Tarisland is an original MMORPG with a fresh IP,” writes producer Yangmin. “Whether it’s in terms of narrative content, gameplay experience, or commercial design, we are committed to delivering a completely new gaming experience. Currently, the game is still in its early stages, and there may be significant adjustments before the final version is released. We ask for your patience as we aim to deliver more exciting original content to our players.”
