Cryptic Studios, known free-to-play games like Star Trek Online and the Dungeons & Dragons–based Neverwinter, might be turning Wizards of the Coast’s Magic: The Gathering into an MMO.

This might be a stretch, so take out your push-pins and yarn and get ready to start connecting the dots on the MTG MMO conspiracy board.

Rumors began when Cryptic posted a job opening (via NeoGAF) for an art director to begin work on an unannounced project based on a “on an extremely exciting, well-known fantasy IP.”

Meanwhile, back in January, Wizards of the Coast president Chris Cocks wondered aloud what it would “be like to throw fireballs as a Planeswalker in an MMO.”

And if you go to Cryptics’ website, a “Top Secret” project is listed as in development with the tagline “Save the world. Be a Champion.”

Obviously this means… nothing, really. But given Cryptic’s history with Wizards of the Coast—adapt the world of D&D into an MMO with Neverwinter—and its record of success in the MMORPG realm, if Cryptic was developing a Magic game, it probably won’t be a card-based MOBA (even though that might be kind of cool). Meanwhile, we’re still waiting on Magic: The Gathering: The Movie.
