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.
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.
