Here is an interview with the DEVs where they more in depth about he game, Basic gist is it is a single player Story where you can choose to go MP during the Story for help or to take a break from the Story and offer after game MP gameplay. So you can treat is as a SP game with MP options and it will target next gen consoles.
This game looked amazing so I’m pretty hyped about it
Q. How do single player and multiplayer work?
HwanKyoung Jung / Co-Producer
• Macduff’s journey itself is single player. Of course, there are parts where you can get help from other players, but the bulk of this is single-player. After that, if you switch to multiplayer, you can play the part that comes after Macduff’s journey. However, you can also switch between single and multiplayer play at any moment during the game without having to clear the single player storyline. In multiplayer mode, you can contact others while making your own story and in multiplayer mode, you can bump into others whenever you want.
• Levels, items, and skills will be shared between single-player and multiplayer play.
So it’s both an MMO and singleplayer RPG.
And a few other interesting bits of information:
Q. Will Crimson Desert support next-generation devices when it comes to consoles? And is it going to be available in the current devices as well?
• We are preparing to support next-generation console devices. Our goal is to create a game that allows as many users as possible to play on a variety of platforms.
Q. We are worried about the frame issue seen in the trailer
• We are not concerned internally about the frame drop. We have accumulated an extensive know-how of our proprietary engine over a long period of time. In the end, we are confident that we will be able to sufficiently deal with the issue through optimization before the game releases.
