Wizards of the Coast reportedly canceled at least five unannounced video game projects

Wizards of the Coast, the company that owns Dungeons & Dragons, would have canceled at least five video games in development, but not yet announced, according to a Bloomberg report.

The company, which in turn is part of Hasbro, would be making an effort to realize its ambitions in the video game space and reduce the number of projects.

Last year, for example, Dungeons & Dragons: Dark Alliance was released, which was not very successful, neither with critics nor with the public.

On the other hand, this 2023 we will see the launch of Larian’s Baldur’s Gate 3, which will be released in August, and which, despite not being developed by any internal Wizards of the Coast studio, does use the Dungeons and Dragons IP.

In an official statement, Wizards of the Coast insisted that it is “committed” to video games, but has made certain changes aimed at “strategically aligning development with our current brands and maintaining the most promising ones.” In theory, the cancellations will affect less than 15 employees, who will relocate to other positions within the company.
