** 2011: Blizzard announces Crabby, an expy of [[StopHelpingMe Microsoft's Clippy]], to assist on the forums and in-game for ''VideoGame/WorldOfWarcraft''. For ''VideoGame/StarcraftII,'' [[http://us.blizzard.com/en-us/games/console/ Blizzard makes a return to consoles,]] with peculiar motion-sensor tech. In addition to this, there are spoof patch notes for [[http://us.battle.net/sc2/en/forum/topic/2325614706 SC2]] and [[http://us.battle.net/wow/en/forum/topic/2325684862 WoW]], which serve as playful {{take that}}s to player complaints concerning both game balance ("Fixed a bug where Terran players were able to lose a game.") and aesthetic concerns (Every class with fire-based abilities gets green fire - except Warlocks).

* Creator/RoosterTeeth, having been founded on April 1st 2003, has as a corporate policy to ''not'' to do any sort of pranks and usually uses the day to introduce trailers for new series and new seasons for existing series.. However, they ''do'' admit that it's amusing that fans will tend to claim one or more trailers are fake and are actually shocked when it turns out that it actually exists, despite that other fans will tell them that RT doesn't do April Fool's pranks.

* In 2013, the wiki put up an article about a DarkerAndEdgier FPS reboot of the series, titled simply "Mario". As over-the-top as it was, it apparently managed to fool several users.

* When ''Magazine/ElectronicGamingMonthly'', well known for it's April Fool's Day hoaxes, announced that Creator/{{Rare}}'s kid-friendly platform game ''Twelve Tales: Coker 64'' was being reworked into an adult-oriented game with plenty of swearing, innuendos, cartoon violence, and ToiletHumor, most people thought it was a joke. [[VideoGame/ConkersBadFurDay It wasn't.]]

* [[Machinima/FalloutLoreTheStoryteller The Fallout series ''The Storyteller'']] teamed up with another channel in 2016 to do a non-canon episode on the sexbot known as Fisto... and even had a link at the end of the episode that brought anyone who hit it to a video that started with them being told they'd been April Fool'd.

* ''Webcomic/[{{Consolers}}'' started doing April Fool's jokes in 2015 when Zanreo announced that she had lost most of her interest in console games and the comic would from now on focus more on mobile games, especially Apple. This was obviously a joke.
