Perfect World Entertainment and Cryptic Studios have announced a new, “AAA RPG” based on Magic: The Gathering currently in development for both console and PC.
The game, the title and details of which will be officially revealed at a later date, will let fans of the strategy card game “fully immerse themselves in the Multiverse,” the fantasy world in which Magic: The Gathering is set.
“It’s Magic: The Gathering like you’ve never experienced before,” said Perfect World Entertainment CEO Bryan Huang. “We are ecstatic about the direction of the game Cryptic has been shaping. It’s always been a dream of ours to bring Magic’s Planeswalkers to a modern RPG.”
Cryptic Studios CEO Stephen D’Angelo added, “Everything from the graphics to the gameplay is being targeted for a truly unique AAA game. We’re thrilled to provide Magic fans with an opportunity to explore the game’s worlds and characters through an entirely new lens. Get ready to embark on a brand new journey.”
Cryptic Studios is currently ramping up production in its Los Gatos headquarters for the development of the game.
