Wizards of the Coast has reportedly canceled at least five videogames in development

Wizards of the Coast, publisher of Dungeons & Dragons and Magic: The Gathering, has canceled at least five of the videogames it had in development, Bloomberg (opens in new tab) reports. The publisher declined to comment on individual games when PC Gamer reached out, offering the reply, “We remain committed to using digital games as a cornerstone of our strategy for bringing our games to players around the world. We have made some changes to our long-term portfolio to focus on games which are strategically aligned with developing our existing brands and those which show promise in expanding or engaging our audience in new ways.”

In 2019, Wizards of the Coast announced that it had “seven or eight” Dungeons & Dragons videogames in the works. That included Baldur’s Gate 3, currently in early access, and co-op brawler Dungeons & Dragons: Dark Alliance, released to a mixed reception in 2021, but the other games have yet to come out or be formally announced. They may not all be in danger, however. The part of Wizards’ statement about focusing on “existing brands” suggests D&D-related projects might be safer than others.
