After a sharp decline in the popularity of the card game in the Dota 2 universe, the developers identified the main goal in the development of the project.
According to Valve representatives, Artifact will not receive global updates in the near future, but the studio will fix errors and bugs. Over the next few months, developers are planning to change the balance, economics and mechanics of the game.
To date, demand for Artifact has fallen to record levels: no more than 400 people visit a game on Steam at a time. In addition, the crisis is associated with the departure from the studio of the main developer Richard Garfield, who once created the famous Magic: The Gathering card collector.
Artifact, which was released on November 29, 2018, has 16894 reviews on Steam, of which 51% are negative.
