In 2015 Hairbrained Schemes Kickstarter campaign for a new BATTLETECH game managed to raise more than $2.5 million. Now here we are nearly two years later and the game is finally getting on a solid track towards a release. Fans have been chomping at the bit for months now waiting for a new Mech game, and their hopes for a quality experience just improved significantly following an announcement at PDXCON.
This week at PDXCON-Paradox Interactive’s annual games convention-the Mech game was announced as being published by Paradox. And with their long-standing tradition of quality strategy games like Hearts of Iron and Stellaris it seems like BATTLETECH is in good hands.
“We couldn’t miss the chance to work with Harebrained Schemes given how big of fans we are of their work on the Shadowrun Returns series. The opportunity to reintroduce our strategy-minded players to the tactical roots of the BattleTech universe makes this partnership even sweeter,” said Johan Sjöberg, Chief Product Officer of Paradox Interactive. “We are as excited about Battletech as the early backers are, and we can’t wait to do our part to bring the game to market.”
