Obsidian hands off Armored Warfare to My.com

    
12

Obsidian Entertainment has gotten out of the tank business, as the developer announced that it has handed off Armored Warfare in its entirety to Russian video game company My.com.

My.com was the publisher of the game, but from now on it looks as though the company will be doing double duty by handling the development of the lobby vehicle battler as well. Obsidian, which laid off several members of the dev team back in December, said that it wants to focus on its other titles, like Pillars of Eternity 2.

“We are grateful for all contributions made by everyone on the Armored Warfare development teams, past and present. The restructured Armored Warfare development team is continuing the current development and update plans and will be dedicated to deliver content to our worldwide players in the most consistent manner,” said My.com Publishing Director Yuri Maslikov.

This studio doesn’t deserve this fate. The Stick of Truth should have been their ticket to the big leagues.

I keep hearing about My.com, but I don’t think I have ever played a single game published by them.
Although I get the sense they’re rising quickly.

They publish Skyforge, which is probably the way most Massively readers might have encountered them before.

There’s generally usually room for just one A-class title in a given genre. World of Tanks found this niche and rules o’er it.

except that’s not true at all… CoD/Battlefield and LoL/DOTA2 etc beg to differ

This is correct, but immaterial. The competitor for World of Tanks is War Thunder, not Armored Warfare.

Obsidian is weird in that they receive a flat fee for their work. It doesn’t matter if their games sell one copy or a million copies, they’ll still receive their lump sum pay from the publishers.

This pretty much makes Obsidian notorious for releasing buggy games.

Too bad was a decent game that I liked better than world of tanks but it never caught on.

It was a weird fit for Obsidian anyway, so this doesn’t surprise me.
