    MechWarrior is also a PnP RPG system, just saying.

    I'm curious how they would do a proper BattleTech RPG - though it will be probably the other one.

    Holy shit, those Shadowrun games must've sold way better than I have thought. The incline is real and here to stay.

    A BattleTech strategy game would be glorious, I still have very fond memories of MechCommander (even though I doubt it would be anything like that).

    Oh boy! Something else for them to mismanage the funding of!

    I wouldn't count on this, on their last kickstarter they avoided overpromising despite all the demands of new features and revised their project management as they themselves admitted they did waste alot of time with things they had to cut from DMS, they seem to be planning funding better this time. Honestly, I'm very excited for HK and it maybe the first big budget kickstarter RPG to be good on 2015. They even abandoned the damn tablets what is a huge incline.

    I wouldn't mind an actual Crimson Skies strategy game., FASA version. But another stunt-plane-shooter with fake low air ceilings? Or a game based on the new(er) pnp version? Psh. Both can go do in a fire.

    Quite opposite for me: I would kill for another arcade flight action akin to old Crimson Skies.

    It's obviously going to be a new Renegade Legion game.

    Well, they also have Golem Arcana (yes, apparently that wasn't a failure). There's also the possibility that their other game, Necropolis, is actually getting some sort of external investor funding. Seeing as it's the only one they haven't Kickstarted.

    MechCommander or MechWarrior would both be great. But both would be very different beasts from what I know from HBS.
    Both should also be popamole enough to get publisher funding. I always wondered why there wasn't really anything done with that in the last years. (Not counting MW Online.)

    tabletop and PC gaming needs to be separate, just like the church and state.
    this fucking teasing of what could be some tabletop garbage in the pc games news space needs to be punished FFS!!!!

    Battletech from before they started burying it in metaplot when it was designed to be feudal mercenary with giant robots simulator. Structured kinda like Pirates!

    And pay for jap mecha designs for God's sake, there have to be 50 year old Japanese nerds that will draft a good looking mech for a pack of cigarettes. You know damn well everything looked bad besides the stuff pulled from jap mecha cartoons.

    No more lumpy American shit robots from guys that couldn't not fuck up symmetry and perspective ten times before breakfast! no more!

    This is not confirming anything but Microsoft is the owner of FASA IPs anyway.

    I wonder what Harebrained needs 60 employees for? Perhaps they have gotten involved in some kind of publisher/popamole contract that we still don't know anything about.

    Hong Kong, eletronic board game and rogue like hack n' slash to pay the bills. I wouldn't be surprised if they made a mechcommander style game after the rogue like thing is done.

    Mm. Maybe HBS is what Microsoft had in mind when they said they intended on taking PC gaming more seriously.
