Not long ago, Blizzard launched the pre-order of World of Warcraft 10.0 data “Dragon Age”, announcing that the game will be launched this year, which is the fastest in the Warcraft expansion. I’m worried that Blizzard will shrink, after all, manpower is tight.
Unexpectedly, Blizzard has already made preparations. Today Blizzard announced the acquisition of game developer Proletariat. The latter’s team of more than 100 people will join the World of Warcraft project team, which will also participate in the development and production of the 10.0 expansion pack, which will obviously greatly increase the team’s development speed. .
Proletariat is not very well-known in China. Their main game is “Spellbreak”, which is also a battle royale game. It’s just that wizards and witches fight with magic instead of bullets. Anyway, a trick.
The game “Spellbreak” was launched in 2018, but the company announced yesterday that the game is about to shut down the server, and it will stop operating in early 2023. Obviously, this is the reason for the acquisition by Blizzard. After all, the team will transfer to World of Warcraft after being bought. In May, they started working with Blizzard.
The acquisition of Proletariat is also Blizzard’s largest acquisition in 10 years, but the exact amount was not disclosed.
