Why did they even pretend it was something different?

King finally renames soft-launched bubble shooter Wilbur as Bubble Witch 3 Saga

King has officially named its upcoming bubble-shooting game starring witches Bubble Witch 3 Saga.

The game was initially soft-launched under the name Wilbur. But the game looked awfully similar to the rest of the Bubble Witch Saga games, so it was fairly obvious that it was really a sequel.

A bit obvious

There was also the fact that the Android package referred to it as "com.king.bubblewitch3".

It sees players matching bubbles by colour to create long chains, clearing screens and scoring points so they can take down the evil magical cat Wilbur.

With the game now being assigned its official title, and Activision Blizzard already stating that a non-Candy Crush game is due out in 2016, it seems likely that Bubble Witch 3 Saga will be due out soon.
