Why is this happening to HOC - KABAM turns to more profitable games

  • Why is this happening to HOC - KABAM turns to more profitable games

    I found this article on their blog, it shows that they are focusing on fewer and higher quality games that will propel Kabam for the long term. HOC probably is not that.

    Also found this

    Global Restructuring

    To achieve this global opportunity we have undertaken a restructuring to position Kabam to lead the mobile games industry with AAA console quality mobile titles in the strategy and role playing games (RPG) categories. Our restructuring beefs up our Studios leadership team, shores up the company’s Hollywood partnerships, readies distribution platforms in China, and trims areas of the business that are not core to developing AAA titles that match Kabam’s new Marvel Contest of Champions, Fast & Furious: Legacy and Spirit Lords in quality.

    Specifically, we have:
    ?Bolstered our Studios and Corporate leadership teams by hiring several new executives.
    ?Divested our legacy Web games
    ?Reduced our third party publishing business
    ?Cancelled games in development that are not AAA quality
    ?Delayed release of other games, adding more development time to ensure the highest quality AAA-inspired game play
    ?Reduced new investment in some of our older games, while maintaining them for the players who still enjoy them --- HOC?
    ?Focused on Customer Service

    And, most importantly, to concentrate our resources on developing AAA console quality mobile games that have the maximum opportunity to be global hits:
    ?Reduced the number of game launches, from 12 published internal and external titles in 2014 to just four new titles in 2015

    I think this mite clarify what is happening with HOC, sadly this game mite go down slowly.
    I hope that I misunderstood everything from above, well time will tell.

    Thanks for sharing. If kabam doesn't want to invest in hoc. Maybe they should sell the rights to another company who can grow it. Hoc is at the 5 million download mark there is no question this is a great game and will continue to be if managed properly.

      If they are about to "maintain the game for the players who still enjoy it", why not plummeting the gem prices?
      And I am not talking about "buy 7K and get another 7k" craps, there are players who would NEVER buy a 7k, even if they can get 700k free with it.
      Free monthly gem rewards and a permanent 75% off would be great. Let us "enjoy" the game before its sunset...

            I am not saying they are GOOD updates, but new events, global arena, etc. They do add new stuff.

              Kabam has given up on hoc a while back, they only give minimal things just to shut people up for a bit until a bug comes then kabam dont want to deal with it, so lets fool the next by pretending they have something good then screw them over as well.
              Kabam is turning out to be the biggest scam artists around by just stealing peoples money and never giving anything that the people actually WANT..

              I was a big spender but i recently just quit spending, i am going on strike from spending on any kabam games especially when they sell you garbage now a days.

              What happened to use Kabam, you use to be pretty decent but now its all about the money and not taking anytime or effort to fix any old games properly like HOC.

              I have made a lot of good friends here in HOC and have seen a lot of them quit and disappear because of your lack of interest to fix something that WAS GREAT, use have destroyed it.

              Guild Wars was awesome and my main reasons for logging in everyday but refuse to log in as guild wars is bugged and use stand by and do nothing except promote or fix a newer game.

              How about stop making so many damn games that use cant fix and concentrate on some of these older games that people are showing alot of interest in.
