As I’m sitting down to write this annual Daily Grind, I find myself wishing I could flip it around and talk about the MMO studios with the worst communication instead. Those companies present themselves much more easily, don’t they? The ones still pretending they didn’t lose their game director a year ago and refusing to tell anyone who’s in charge now? The ones that tried to sell their skimpy paid patch as an expansion after a summer of miserable rapport with players? It wasn’t a great year for MMO studios, that’s what I’m trying to say.
But let’s try to keep it positive. The studios with good communication are out there, just not grabbing the same kinds of attention, so let’s focus on them today. Which MMO studio would you say had the best communication in 2020? What are they doing right that other studios ought to copy?
