Wizards of the Coast Opens Digital Studio

Posted Jan 18, 2017 by Suzie Ford

Wizards of the Coast Opens Digital Studio

Wizards of the Coast is moving into the computer age with the opening of its first digital studio and big plans to "reimagine" Magic the Gathering and other Wizards products in the new format. Could there be an MMO in the future or an augmented reality project? It's possible. The goal of the studio is to "make Wizards experiences more efficient, connected and convenient".

We will bring our characters and worlds to other games and experiences. What would it be like to throw fireballs as a Planeswalker in an MMO, or quest for treasure with your friends in a D&D augmented-reality game? We want to play games like this too, so we hired David Schwartz, an industry veteran with 25 years of experience leading projects at Microsoft, Electronic Arts, THQ, LeapFrog Enterprises, and Midway Games. He is building a publishing team to explore partnerships and collaborations that will bring Magic and D&D to unexpected settings, genres, and platforms.
