Almost exactly four months after launching Artifact, Valve puts her card game into an infinite state of sleep development. In a blog titled "Towards A Better Artifact", the developers learn about their expectations and their future plans. This is the first time in three months that the popular developer of the massively successful esports titles Dota 2 and Counter-Strike has commented on the development progress.
The number of players dropped sharply from the all-time high after the release of Artifact. After that, the number of players dropped steadily, and already one month after the start of the players' summit, some 8,000 players would already be at the same time. Previously, this weakness had registered a new player low of 97 simultaneous players.
