Hopefully they're staffing up to make console ports of Smite. One of the few MOBA's that could work on consoles imo.

I've always thought so too. I would probably stick to playing it on PC but I'd love to see Smite get more publicity. It is a fantastic game.

Yeah, the action bar is small enough that they could tie every slot to a command on the controller. I really hope they make ports soon. I'm hearing rumors of a LOL port on Xbox One, but I'd rather have Smite honestly.

Nice seeing a story about a studio expanding instead of shedding jobs, for a change.

And long may they stay independent! Though if Smite does really well I can see one of the big publishers eating them up. Smite is great, and lots of fun and it runs on pretty basic hardware (like my laptop that doesn't even have a graphics card) so it's very accessible.
