Tuesday, Hasbro, Inc.’s Wizards of the Coast has been named to Fast Company’s prestigious annual list of the World’s Most Innovative Companies for 2023.
This year’s list highlights the businesses at the forefront of their respective industries, paving the way for the innovations of tomorrow. These companies are setting the standard with some of the greatest accomplishments of the modern world.
“We’re honored to be named one of Fast Company’s Most Innovative Companies and to rank among the top 5 in our industry this year,” said Cynthia Williams, President of Wizards of the Coast and Hasbro Digital Gaming. “As we look toward the future, we believe that continued innovation is central to sparking player’s passion and inspiring their creativity. Whether players gather face-to-face or connect digitally, we aspire to find new and exciting ways to welcome players to our games for many generations to come.”
Hasbro and Wizards of the Coast are focused on building on a strong legacy of innovation in gaming and connecting with our communities around the globe. Dungeons & Dragons and Magic: The Gathering, now each with over 50 million players worldwide, have historically thrived in an in-person, tabletop setting. But over the past few years, Wizards of the Coast has rolled out companion digital initiatives like Magic: The Gathering Arena, D&D Beyond, and SpellTable that give players the opportunity for immersive, engaging play from their computer or mobile devices.
Fast Company’s Most Innovative Companies issue (March/April 2023) is available online here, as well as in-app form via iTunes, and on newsstands beginning March 14.
