Obsidian Entertainment announced that they will no longer be developing Armored Warfare; development will be taken over by the game’s Russian publisher My.com.
Armored Warfare is a tactical free-to-play multiplayer tank shooter game that is currently in Open Beta. My.com assured current players that the new Armored Warfare development team will still deliver on all of the new features and content previously announced.
Feargus Urquhart, CEO of Obsidian Entertainment, had the following to say about handing off development of the game:
“At Obsidian, we are grateful to have had the opportunity to work on Armored Warfare over the last four years. We are happy to hand off Armored Warfare to the talented developers at My.com who, we know, will deliver incredible updates and content to Armored Warfare fans across the world. Our focus at Obsidian will turn to currently announced games such as Pillars of Eternity 2: Deadfire, Tyranny, and Pathfinder: Adventures along with other unannounced projects. We are proud of everything we did on Armored Warfare and want to thank all of our dedicated fans for their involvement and support.”
Meanwhile, Yuri Maslikov, Publishing Director of My.com said the following about My.com taking over development:
“We are grateful for all contributions made by everyone on the Armored Warfare development teams, past and present. The restructured Armored Warfare development team is continuing the current development and update plans and will be dedicated to deliver content to our worldwide players in the most consistent manner.”
My.com also recently acquired the publishing rights to free-to-play shooter Warface from Crytek, resulting in the layoff of fifteen Crytek employees. Armored Warfare is currently available in Open Beta on PC.
