Riot Games acquires Hypixel Studios, creators of Hytale

In a recent press release from Riot Games, the Californian company announced the acquisition of Hypixel Studios, the creators of Hytale.

Historically, Hypixel is one of the biggest Minecraft servers in the world. In 2018, with the notable support of Riot Games, Hypixel's founders gave birth to Hypixel Studios with the aim of developing Hytale, a block game very similar to Minecraft.

While Riot Games acquired the branch of the company working on Hytale, they didn't purchase the other Hypixel company that's working on the Minecraft server.

More budget, more staff, and more equipment for Hypixel's freelancers who will then be able to focus on developing Hytale as best they can.

It's been more than a year since Hypixel Studio and Riot Games are thinking about the best way to conclude this partnership — and it's now done.

Hypixel Studios is being acquired by Riot Games as an independent studio. We’ll continue to operate in the same way as we have before, but Riot will become our parent company and we’ll gain access to their expertise and resources. This means a bigger budget for Hytale, more security for our team, and advisory support from a company that knows how to launch and operate successful, long-running games.
Former Hypixel Studios CEO, Simon
