Mojang, the development studio best known for their hit sandbox game Minecraft, have just announced the end of active development for their only other game, the trading card-based fantasy title Scrolls. The game was first announced in 2011 and had a long alpha and beta testing period before it was officially launched in December 2014.
In an announcement today, Mojang stated they won't be adding any more new features or card sets to Scrolls, but will continue to balance the game going forward. It added:
"Scrolls will still be available to purchase for the time being, and our servers will run until at least July 1st, 2016. All future proceeds will go towards keeping Scrolls playable for as long as possible. The launch of the Scrolls beta was a great success. Tens of thousands of players battled daily, and many of them remain active today. Unfortunately, the game has reached a point where it can no longer sustain continuous development."
Mojang was acquired by Microsoft, primarily for its Minecraft property, in November 2014, just a month before the launch of Scrolls.
