A Note From The Developers

Aug 29, 2018

To Dragoborne around the world,

From all of us in the Dragoborne Development Team at Bushiroad, thank you for all the love you’ve shown the game and for giving a new, original TCG a shot in an age where players are truly spoilt for choice when it comes to games, both digital and analogue. Dragoborne has been a labor of love for the whole team, and no one is more devastated than we are that we’ve come to this point in the game’s life barely a year after we sold our first booster boxes at GenCon ‘17.

I still remember the early days of development - growing Dragoborne from Mike Elliott’s original concept, working with him and the rest of the developers to build a cohesive game and experience that we enjoyed, and one we hoped players would enjoy. Watching players talk about the game and play the game, both at a casual level and in tournament play, brought all that satisfaction home for us. 

While it is unfortunate that the game will be discontinued, we did learn a lot in the course of developing and promoting the game - important lessons that we will definitely take with us moving forward.

Booster Pack Vol. 5 - Reckoning of Vashr will be the last booster pack released for Dragoborne, but we had plans for so much more - it is truly a shame that we could not share more of our work with everyone. Even so, I hope that those who choose to support the game for one last product will enjoy it - Reckoning of Vashr brings new toys to the table, first and foremost among them being the multicolored cards. We put in a lot of work to make sure that each nation’s identity is preserved when combining them in this way, so that the game still feels seamless to play and to understand. We’ll be kicking off the Card of the Days for Reckoning of Vashr really soon, so keep an eye out for that.

This year’s Bushiroad Championship Series will be the last major tournament series for the game, and we hope all of you can enjoy competing on the global stage one last time.

Once again, thank you all for your support, and we hope you will continue to spread the love for TCGs for as long as this hobby exists.

Signing off for the last time,
Matthew Lee
