‘Bloodline Champions’ has been in development since 2008, when it started out as a student project put together by the original founders of Stunlock Studios. Over time, the project grew in scope and when Funcom signed on as a publisher in 2010 the talented developers at Stunlock Studios were able to devote all their time and effort into realizing the true potential of ‘Bloodline Champions’. The free-to-play game is set for release in late this year.
“It’s been a dream come true for us to be able to turn ‘Bloodline Champions’ into the game that we are playing today,” says Stunlock Studios CEO Tau Petersson. “Coming from such humble beginnings, to see the game being enjoyed by over 100,000 players is simply amazing. We are very proud of the game that we have put together, and we are all thrilled to have so many players in the beta to provide us with valuable feedback that we need to turn the game into something even greater than it is today.”
