How Blizzard’s Cost-Cutting is Affecting Their Video Game Business Strategies

Earlier this month, developer Blizzard Entertainment abruptly announced the end of the eSports program for their crossover MOBA ‘Heroes of the Storm’.

It had been known for a while that it was something Capcom planned on doing, as they had revealed way back in 2015.

Dead Cells Update Gives Players the Keys to the Kingdom

This blend of sword-swinging and a rogue-lite/Metdroidvania has given players a lot of options before - but they were all locked behind a progress wall.  So you could upgrade your weapons and pick between them, but they all had to be earned.

Celeste Hits 500,000 Units Sold and Devs Celebrate With New Content

Celeste was one of 2018's biggest hits and arguably the best precision-platformer on the market.
