Hi-Rez reorganizes SMITE, Paladins, and Realm Royale teams as newly renamed substudios


Hi-Rez Studios is making bold moves today: It’s just announced that it’s splitting up the band, unbundling its games teams into separate but joined substudios. Titan Forge Games will run SMITE, Evil Mojo Games will operate Paladins, and Heroic Leap Games will steer Realm Royale, all under the First Party Studios banner. And they’ll all run alongside Skillshot Media (focused on e-sports) and Alacrity Arthouse (technical art services) and presumably anything else Hi-Rez ultimately brings into the fold.

Confused yet? The good news is that the people actually working on all the games aren’t actually changing.

“Our new Hi-Rez Publishing Group is designed as a service organization, whose sole mission is to enable each of our partner studios to reach their full potential and best serve their respective gamer communities,” Hi-Rez President Stewart Chisam says in today’s press release. “By structuring ourselves in this manner, we allow the organization to scale to multiple games more easily, while ensuring our existing game communities receive a better, more focused service than ever before.”

Hi-Rez has a couple of other maintenance mode games floating around, you’ll recall, including Global Agenda and Tribes Ascend; the company didn’t say what if anything is happening to their remnants.

Speaking of Hi-Rez, I recently logged into Global Agenda for the first time in years. I was a bit surprised that the servers were still up, and even more surprised to see they were up when literally 0 other people were playing. Not a soul to be found. Why are they keeping the servers running for no one?

Oh wow. I played it for a time. Actually thought it had potential. No idea the servers were still up.

Does this mean 2019 will be a Hi-Titan Forge-Evil Mojo-Heroic Leap-Rez expo?
