Candid Post Reveals SMITE’s “Unusual” Success Kept Tribes: Ascend Afloat

Hi-Rez Studios once again wen to the madness of Reddit to disseminate information regarding Tribes: Ascend, its frantic shooter and sophomore release. Earlier this year, COO Todd Harris broke the news that the company had effectively ceased development on the title to focus on Global Agenda 2 and god-based MOBA SMITE. The announcement came with two caveats. One, that it was only that there was nothing substantial in the chute for the next six months. The second hangup was that Hi-Rez Studios had begun work on a new map and hoped to release map-making tools to the community.

In an insanely transparent post on Reddit, CEO Erez Goren revealed the company’s profitability game-by-game. Not actual figures mind you, but that Global Agenda failed to make money and remained a loss generating, yet supported project for a year after launch. Tribes Ascend broke even “at best”. There are numerous reasons, proven and suspect, given for both.

What’s most interesting is the case of SMITE. The opposite of what the Tribes community may suspect, the MOBA, which has increased in popularity every month, has supported the shooter. Had SMITE not come, the servers, likely the company, would have shut down.

Unfortunately, Goren seemingly put the kibosh on those map-making tools. Stating “[O]ur infrastructure and development platform does not support that ability well and the cost and time to develop those features is extremely high.”

At the very least, the communities have seen Hi-Rez Studios learn from its mistakes and smartly adapt each title’s strong point for future innovation.
