In a brief announcement on the Crowfall forums, Director of Community Valerie Massey has announced that Artcraft and Travian Games have parted ways. Travian and Artcraft originally inked an EU publishing deal in 2016. The end of the partnership is effective today. No reason was cited for the break up.
We have an update for you on our Crowfall licensing. While we aren’t going to dive into the details, we wanted to let you know that Travian Games (“TG”) and ArtCraft Entertainment (“ACE”) have mutually agreed to end our existing publishing partnership and that ArtCraft is, as of June 13, 2019, resuming direct responsibility for all Crowfall customers in the Travian Games publishing territories (which include Europe, the Middle East and Brazil). The relationship between TG and ACE remains amicable, and this decision is the result of changes in strategic direction for both companies.
