Hi-Rez Studios officials announced early in January that they were working on a card game called “SMITE Rivals,” which should appear at an indefinite time for the PC and mobile devices. With this one wanted to put familiar characters and gods from “SMITE” into a new garment, which is different from the well-known MOBA experience.
But now the developers have announced that the work on “SMITE: Rivals” has already stopped again. Just two months after the official announcement, the project has already died again. Although the game concept was still convincing, the first tests had already shown that one would have to invest significantly more work in “SMITE Rivals” before a publication can be made.
However, since the round-based strategic game “SMITE Tactics” is successful, the capacities should now be used to further develop this title as well as the MOBA “SMITE”.
Whether “SMITE: Rivals” will be reactivated one day will show the time. Until then, however, you can first kill the other games of the Hi-Rez Studios.
