Opinion: What will Artifact on mobile look like? If it's anything like PC, it'll have a fight on its hands

Valve Corporation has a long history of developing popular and successful video games, although lately they’ve been relying on the veritable money-printing machine that is Steam.

One of the hardest tabletop genres to be successful in is CCGs. Just look at all the dead CCGs being sold for pennies at every convention; if you aren't Magic, Pokemon, or Yugioh, you're likelihood of success approaches zero.

Even though Artifact is digital, because of its pricing I see it more as a title competing with the aforementioned successful tabletop games. This isn't a pick-up-and play game, and, honestly, this isn't a game that is looking to appeal to a wide, casual audience. This game, whether purposefully or not, it targeted at CCG players.

As for mobile, this game will have to be exceptional to compete with heavy-hitters like Hearthstone, Elder Scrolls, Eternal, and, eventually, Magic Arena.

The likelihood of success isn't high, I think.

The gameplay might be great, but I'll happily boycott them just on the arrogance of charging a premeium price for a pay to play freemium game.
