The MOP Up: Ankama, the studio behind Wakfu and Dofus, turns 20


This past week marked a huge milestone for the parent studio of Wakfu and Dofus, as Ankama turned 20 years old. To celebrate, Ankama unveiled a new logo and promised more gaming goodness in the years to come.

“We’ll continue to develop our various worlds: All the ones you know, love and take part in, but also many new projects at different stages of development. Some are so new that you haven’t heard about them yet, while others, like Wakfu Season 4, are currently being written. Still others are gradually being revealed to their audiences, like WAVEN. And some are quivering with anticipation to burst forth into the world, like Princess Dragon.”

And this is just the beginning of the rest of the news! Read on for a roundup of other smaller MMO news stories and videos from this past week in this edition of The MOP Up (and if you don’t see a news story that we should have covered, drop us a tip)!
