“Thanks for the interest in New World. We’ve received questions from the community about a few concept videos that were used to research possible features for the game. They’re pretty dated, so don’t read too much into them. We’ll be back when we’re ready to share what we’ve been working on. Thanks again for the support!” – /u/NewWorldOfficial on Reddit
