Neverwinter dev confirms Cryptic’s Magic: The Gathering MMO is still in dev in an Undermountain blog

It’s been a pretty heckin’ long time since we heard about the Magic: The Gathering MMO that Cryptic first announced in June of 2017. During a dev blog regarding Neverwinter’s Expeditions feature in Undermountain, environment artist Patrick Poage has confirmed that the Magic: The Gathering title is still a thing.

After a deep dive on how Poage and his team set up atmosphere and variance in Undermountain’s new repeatable content, he closes with an announcement that he will be leaving the Neverwinter team after four years to “move downstairs” and begin environment artist work for the Magic: The Gathering title. This is the most recent confirmation we have received that the game is still being built; Cryptic has been mum about the new game’s existence since sometime last September.

The original dev blog regarding Neverwinter is still an interesting nuts-and-bolts read, so it’s worth your time to take a look if that’s of interest. In the meantime, we wish Poage the best of luck and hope that there’s more word on the new M:TG game than a passing mention at the end of a dev blog for an unrelated MMO.

magic has been in development and yes quite a few devs have been moved to the new team

and new devs have been hired for both magic and the existing teams :3

i get annoyed when they move devs around, but that is how they operate; have devs move to newer projects and train some/most (i dunno THAT much) new devs on existing projects to get familiar with stuff

all in all, it is nice to have fresh creative eyes on existing projects… STILL annoying tho lol

Mixed feelings about this. I would like see a magic the gathering game from them but same time I dont like they take personnel away from STO etc

I wonder. What will be the scenario they’ll use? Ravnica? The old world?

yeah, I’m not happy about it. They drain away devs from STO too. Srsly I’m not happy.

Yay! I thought this was a dead duck. Nice to hear it’s still a thing.
