Riot Games Acquires Indie Game Developer Hypixel Studios

The developer is working on its first title, “Hytale,” to be released in 2021.

Riot Games acquired indie game developer Hypixel Studios April 16 in a bid to diversify its game offerings.

Hypixel was formed in 2018 to develop a Minecraft server and soon began developing its own games. Terms of the acquisition were not disclosed.

“Over the last 18 months, we’ve been fortunate to advise Hypixel Studios as they build toward their vision for evolving a game genre that reaches an incredibly diverse range of players around the globe,” Riot Games President Dylan Jadeja said in a statement. We look forward to supporting Hypixel Studios’ journey through the development process, helping them grow, and learning from them as well.”

The developer is working on its first title, “Hytale,” to be released next year. The game will combine several different modes of gameplay, including crafting and block-based construction similar to Minecraft, mini-games and a combat adventure mode.
