Hands up: Are any of you out there Magic players? Have you ever dabbled in Magic Online? Well if you’ve been hoping for a game that isn’t as advanced as Magic Online yet isn’t as simplified as Magic Duels, then you might be interested to hear that Hasbro is working on a new title under the umbrella of Magic Digital Next.
Magic Digital Next is meant to bridge the accessibility gap between Duels and Online and is still years away from release. It’s aiming for the casual player and competitive player market, perhaps in the hopes to siphon off some of that Hearthstone crowd that has to be a burr in Magic’s side.
“The greatest opportunity for Magic is to create a new digital experience leveraging contemporary technology to create a seamless digital experience that meets all the players needs from new players to pro players,” Hasbro CEO Brian Goldner said at an investor event. “This is what we are investing in and we have a team in place to deliver the first new Magic Digital Next product in the next few years.”
