Krafton, the developers behind Player Unknown’s Battleground (PUBG) and Battleground Mobile India (BGMI), have revealed the lineup of three major titles coming in 2024. Among these, two are mobile games. The first, named “Darker and Darker,” is a Mobile Extraction RPG, while the second is a life simulation. Additionally, an extraction shooter game titled “Project Black Budget” is suspected to grab the attention.
This significant announcement came through a financial statement, tracing the release timelines for each title. Darker and Darker (Mobile Extraction RPG) is scheduled for launch in the first half of 2024, while Project inZOI (life simulation) and Project Black Budget are expected in the second half of the same year.
Darker and Darker Mobile Aims to Lead Mobile Extraction Genre
Darker and Darker Mobile is looking forward to redefining the mobile extraction genre by blending the elements of Medieval Fantasy RPG, Battle Royale, and Dungeon Crawler. Krafton has expressed its commitment to leading the esteemed mobile gaming genre.
Project inZOI – Emotions of Life

Details about Project Black Budget remain unknown, with the developers merely announcing the game Extraction-based shooter. Despite the limited information, Krafton suggests that this game is likely to be a sensation in 2024.
It’s worth noting that extraction-based shooter games are multiplayer experiences where players gather loot on their way to an extraction point for escape.
However, most of the extraction games have failed to paint community interest. The genre witnessed attempts from major players like Call of Duty and Battlefield, which were eventually withdrawn. The success of Project Black Budget, as Insider-Gaming has reported, will be closely observed, marking a potential turning point for extraction-based gaming experiences.
