A successful online game has the potential to draw in crowds and revenue. If it’s successful enough, the studio might even splurge for a spin-off to make more money. We’ve certainly seen plenty of side projects for MMOs over the years that have vied for players’ attention.
Digital card games set in the same MMO world seem to be a popular trend if you look at titles like Hearthstone, Legends of Norrath, and even the recent Legends of Runeterra. But there have been enough side-quels (EverQuest Online Adventures), solo spin-offs (The Park), virtual reality titles (EVE Valkyrie), and mobile editions (Black Desert Mobile) to choke a geeky horse.
What’s your favorite MMO spin-off and why? That is what you must focus on right now even if you are performing open heart surgery or high-level hostage negotiations.
