StarDock’s annual Customer Report was released today and, as usual, CEO Brad Wardell provided a frank overview of the company’s successes and shortcomings, along with a few sprinkled hints of plans for the future.
Unsurprisingly, Sins of a Solar Empire: Trinity was counted as a standout success, and the company teased “important announcements” for the franchise this year. The report later states that it anticipates “3 big announcements” this year for the PC, making us suspect that one could be a Solar Empire sequel or expansion.
Elemental: War of Magic, however, didn’t do so well. Saying it gave the company a “black eye,” Wardell bluntly says, “what appears ‘fun’ on paper does not always result in ‘fun’ in reality.” He promises that Fallen Enchantress is a departure from War of Magic, sharing only some art assets. In addition to the previously announced free Fallen Enchantress offer for War of Magic buyers, StarDock will be offering War of Magic at a discount and will continue tweaking it “for those users who prefer its game mechanics.”
