Wizard101: KingsIsle to Donate $100k to Two Texas Charities

SBFordSBFord Associate Editor - News ManagerThe Land of AZPosts: 16,649MMORPG.COM Staff Uncommon

Thanks to the generosity of Pirate101 and Wizard101 players, KingsIsle will be donating a total of $100,000 USD to a pair of Texas charities. The funds were raised during last month's Falalalala charity mount sales in both games.

“This year, with the launch of Pirate101, we decided to up the ante and double our contribution goal to $100,000,” said Elie Akilian, chairman and CEO of KingsIsle Entertainment. “Today, we’re pleased to announce that we achieved that goal. This brings KingsIsle’s total charitable contribution since the launch of Wizard101 to over $326,000 – all going to children’s charities in Texas and around the country.”

    Just another reason why KingsIsle is one of the better MMO companies out there.

    Yep, at least one company knows how to write MMO's that are fun and keep people playing.  I just hope EA never buys them because that will be it for the studio.  You have to wonder how EA can look at these companies like KingsIsle and Blizzard pulling in all the profits in from this genre where EA has failed miserably.

    Kudos to KingsIsle.
