As many game studios are doing right now, Albion Online’s Sandbox Interactive is pausing to take stock of the year that has passed and preparing to head into the one in front of it. Overall, it lauded its own progress through a “challenging” 2020, noting the game’s substantial updates and increased activity.
“Meanwhile, the in-game population continued to grow and grow, reaching an unprecedented 125,000 daily average users,” the studio posted. “This increase occurred despite the overall easing of worldwide lockdowns, and was due in large part to the large number of players who joined the game with the Rise of Avalon update.”
This year promises to be one of the most significant for the PvP sandbox yet, especially considering that the long-awaited mobile edition of the game is slated to come out and fulfill Albion’s destiny of being a cross-platform MMO. Other projects on deck include a faction warfare and hellgate overhaul as well as loadouts.
Massively OP recently awarded Albion Online the Indie MMO of the Year title for 2020 – just prior to its buyout by Stillfront Group AB.
