“What happened to Wordament? Where did it go?”
We’ve been getting this question a lot today, as Microsoft just released the Release Preview of Windows 8. It’s a very exciting release of Windows and moves Windows one step closer to final release!
As you can probably guess, we are working hard to bring Wordament on Windows 8 to you, at high-quality, and using Xbox LIVE. Back in April, when we shipped Wordament on Xbox LIVE on Windows Phone, we had to fragment the user base—Players on Phone came to Xbox LIVE and players on Windows 8 Consumer Preview stayed on our older Wordament screen name system. We never want fragment our player base like that again. We like having one user base and one set of Friends and Frenemies.
When we arrive on Windows 8 again, it will be with Xbox LIVE and there won’t be any need for an “Unlock code”. Your Xbox LIVE account will just work across Phone and Windows. It will be great.
So, stay tuned for an announcement on our blog about the new Wordament on Windows 8 with Xbox LIVE. It will have many of the same great features as the Phone version, including Language Editions, sound, and a single player base. We are getting close…
