Sparkypants Studios has replaced Dire Wolf Digital as the developer on Bethesda's free-to-play card-battler The Elder Scrolls: Legends, just over a year after the title launched in March 2017.
The switch-up was announced in a Q&A on the Steam Community forums, where Bethesda revealed the change has more to do with the game's future than it's present state.
The publisher explained the swap will allow it to better support the title with regular updates, new features, competitive scene supports, and other fan requests.
"We believe this is the best path to continue improving the game," wrote the publisher. "Rest assured, the core mechanics, modes, cards, and everything you already love about The Elder Scrolls: Legends will remain intact and unchanged."
For those who aren't familiar with Sparkypants, the studio is currently working on Early Access online action title Dropzone, which has a 'mostly positive' rating on Steam from 742 player reviews.
Although Dire Wolf is departing, Bethesda said the studio "designed and created a wonderful card game," and praised the team's overall contribution.
