Bejeweled 3 to hit virtual shelves in December
To say Bejeweled is a popular game would be a little bit of an understatement. It is one of the biggest casual gaming franchises in the world. Period. And the next evolution of Bejeweled will be launched in December 2010, going by the catchy name, well, Bejeweled 3. It’s been a long time, since Bejeweled 2 had started to devour the spare time of millions of users. Six years, to be exact. So it is definitely time for the series to get a third incarnation.
To show, how big this franchise really is, let’s take a look at the numbers: 50 million sold games, 500 million playing users and a total playtime of estimated 7.5 billion hours.
The third installment of the franchise will feature HD graphics and state-of-the-art audio. The gameplay will be just what we would expect from a Bejeweled game, of course with some nice tweaks and new features like customization with new sounds and music.
If there isn’t something going horribly wrong, Bejeweled 3 will again be one of the most awesome puzzle games you will find on the internet. 500 million people can’t be wrong, right?
We all can’t wait until December to quit our jobs and start playing Bejeweled 3 for a long long time!
