  • Is anything changing about the structure of the Hytale development team?
  • We’re bringing on new developers and making some changes to the structure of our internal teams as we ramp up development on Hytale. These aren’t radical changes to the way we operate, and are changes that we’d likely have made anyway.
  • Are Hytale developers becoming Riot employees?
  • No. Hytale developers will continue to be employees or contractors working for Hypixel Studios.
  • Will Riot developers be working on Hytale?
  • Hypixel Studios developers are separate from Riot Games devs and will be functioning independently from one another. However, at times, Hypixel employees will have opportunities to benefit from training and mentorship from Riot Games developers.
