No further information has been revealed, except that Yostar Pictures is animating the series.
Arknights is set in a ruined world. Upon the discovery of a mysterious mineral known as “Source”, mankind made giant leaps in technologies, but it also brought a deadly virus. People infected by Source are known as “infected”, infected victims will slowly petrify from within their body. With no cure, the only thing those that are not infected can do is quarantine the infected.
The quarantine policy led to the infected unifying to rebel against the government, destroying cities putting them on an irreversible path. Under the disguise of offering Infected with medical care, a company known as Rhodes Islands has been secretly researching and experimenting on Source to create new weapons for the war.
The free-to-play tower defense mobile game is developed by Chinese developer Hypergryph and published by Yostar. It was first released in China in May 2019, in other countries in January 2020 and in Taiwan in June 2020.
