It appears that Sony are big fans of collectible card games, since they have decided to purchase the popular PoxNora MMO together with its developers, Octopi. Following the transaction, Octopi became Sony’s Tucson studio and they will continue working on PoxNora but also on new trading card games together with the Denver studio.
“Our strategy and trading card games have been successful beyond our wildest dreams,” said John Smedley, president of Sony Online Entertainment. “Expanding with a great product like PoxNora and the outstanding development team from Octopi gives us a chance to extend our strategy game offerings and enhance the ones we already field.”
The transaction closed on Friday and no changes to the game were announced. We’ll keep an eye on it, just to make sure that any move Sony has planned will be revealed as soon as possible.
