Hey guys! Crusader here with some rather interesting news. This year definitely marks an interesting change with the development of The Elder Scrolls: Legends. For the random reader living under a rock, which is a surprising amount of people, The Elder Scrolls: Legends is a card game based on The Elder Scrolls series, released in 2017. I haven't done a blog post in awhile now, but that should start to change soon I'm hoping. *cough* Interviews *cough.*
Anyway, to hit the nail on the head, Bethesda is shifting the ongoing development of the game from Dire Wolf Digital to Sparkypants. As Bethesda describes them, they are a "a team of exceedingly talented developers with a passion and commitment to strategy gaming, competitive multiplayer and of course, The Elder Scrolls universe."
Sparkypants, or Sparkypants Studios LLC, plans on creating an entirely new client for Legends. This client won't bring new and drastic changes, such as completely restarting the entire game, but it is planned to change…
