News:: How Bandai Namco is (and isn't) changing 'Duelyst'

There's something about Duelyst. Its magic might stem from the fact that it's gorgeous, with floaty, bright pixel art in a rich fantasy world -- or it might be the blend of card-based strategy and turn-based tactics. It might run even deeper than that: Counterplay Games is a 14-person, independent studio co-founded by Keith Lee, the former lead producer on Diablo III, and staffed by veterans of League of Legends, Overwatch and XCOM.

Whatever makes Duelyst shine, it certainly caught the eye of Bandai Namco, one of the gaming industry's oldest and largest studios. Bandai Namco just signed on to publish Duelyst, freeing up the developers at Counterplay to focus on, well, development.
