Hello everyone and welcome to the December 2022 State of the Game post! We’ve had so much happening at PerBlue and Disney Heroes since the last State of the Game post in March so let’s just get right to it!
This year we had so much going on! We released 27 amazing heroes into the game. We had server merges and opened a new server! DH was added to the Huawei store which means we now have the game on five different operating systems. Skill Tag Visibility, Battle Pass revamp and our new DH newsletter were also big projects for us, but the biggest project this year was the Patch system! We know you all still have some questions regarding Patch and so we made this questions post to make sure we can have all your FAQ’s in one place and our devs can work on extending the tutorial and ingame tips for you all.
For 2023 we’re finishing up our Yellow and War quality of life updates. The only information I’m able to share regarding this for Yellow QoL is that we’re working on making the Megavirus more cunning and adaptable, reworking the prime badge economy, and adding better megabit scaling. Unfortunately, I can’t get any more specific than that! The information I’m able to share regarding War QoL is that we’re going to improve the matchmaking system, improve rewards, and make the car bonuses more meaningful. Other quality of life changes are coming too. Possibly even the ability to buy more Gold Crates with just one click.
With 2023 we will also start having a different update cadence. Now before you start with the “game is dying” posts this was decided as we will be doing so much that we want to give the team more time to work on things. We will no longer be doing the .10 updates. We will be doing one client update every 4 weeks. This will give our devs and QA teams more time to get things done without feeling like being rushed. We are doing more refreshes and so much more with quality of life that this is going to be nice for our team.
Another thing changing with our team is that I’m moving away from working on specific games and am overseeing PerBlue’s community as a whole. This was brought up previously, but is still coming up often with being tagged. Nugget is the DH community manager and is helping with support as well! They will be the one answering questions here and sometimes in tickets. Please ONLY tag Nugget from now on. I may pop up sometimes like if Nugget is going on vacation or has a day off, but otherwise please do not tag me looking for a response as you will most likely not get one from me.
We’re so excited for 2023 and have so much on our internal roadmap (that hopefully can be added to the external roadmap soon)! We’re going to have our live dev Q&A on Wednesday Dec 14th at 2:30pm CST! Start thinking about your questions now and we’ll have another announcement on the specific time next week.
