Co-creator of Counter-Strike Minh "Gooseman" Le joined South Korean game developer Pearl Abyss this last week. Gooseman will not however be working on Black Desert Online and will instead focus his efforts on a new project. While Gooseman is a legendary name in gaming circles, he hasn't had much luck with his most recent gaming project, a tactical shooter called "Tactical Intervention" which shut down last year.

All of them are in progress to be network-based games with high-quality graphics by using the self-developed engine.” Now we’ve got a tease about two of those. As MMO Culture reports, one of them is a global mobile MMO – and it’s not Black Desert Mobile, as its setting is apparently quite different. It sounds like an all-ages social game rather than a competitive one, with a goal for meeting other users.
