As stated in the announcement post, this new game won't affect or hinder the development of Craftopia in any way.
PocketPair has grown much larger over the last year and 5 of our newest members are taking on this new project alone. None of the Craftopia team will be leaving or moving to work on Palworld. So please rest assured, Craftopia is not being forgotten or abandoned.
A lot of people have asked on our Discord why don't the new devs just work on Craftopia. The head of PocketPair and lead dev on Craftopia has also explained this today:

For example, currently we are trying to improve island map system for R&D. It's hard to separate the task by people. Main Missions have to be decided after the R&D.
Adding dev teams is not always the best way to proceed the game development project.
Hard to explain everything and understand from your side, but thank you for your understanding for now. We will continue Craftopia development as best.
Again, I really do want to emphasize that Craftopia will continue as normal. We've recently posted a brand new roadmap too that I encourage you to check out on the Steam forums or Discord.
