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.
