Just over a year since it first launched, Bethesda is switching developers for their Elder Scrolls-based strategy card game, Legends.
The previous developers, Dire Wolf, has been on the game since its inception and over the last year. Bethesda has decided to transition the game to Sparkypants Studios, the developers behind Dropzone. In a statement given to IGN, Bethesda senior vice president of marketing Pete Hines confirmed the news in a statement to IGN.
Hines says that the change is being made primarily because Legends has a lot of untapped potential, not because Dire Wolf did anything wrong with it. That said, he also remarked that Sparkypants Studios’ singular focus on the game will benefit it. Bethesda will have more information on the game when the publisher holds its E3 show Sunday, June 10 – 6:30 p.m. PT.
I guess Bethesda saw the opportunity for the game to be as big a revenue generator as Hearthstone and doesn’t want to be left behind once Artifact gets out there.
