That's it, it's done, finished. Harebrained Schemes have announced that their turn-based mech strategy game BATTLETECH is done, with a last patch coming this month.
After many patches and three big expansions across, the BATTLETECH saga is coming to a close nearly two years after the full release. Speaking in a fresh update on their Kickstarter, they said "Now, with our season pass at an end, HBS is going to focus on two brand new non-BattleTech projects. Our last free update, BATTLETECH Update 1.9, will release in late February. After that, BATTLETECH will continue to maintain customer support.".
Harebrained co-founder Mitch Gitelman also released this video:
They also released another video with a timeline of the project structure, which was actually quite cool.
With them moving onto two new projects, we will be keeping a close eye on what they're up to. Since they supported Linux with multiple games and they're now owned by Paradox Interactive who are quite a Linux-friendly publisher most of the time too. Exciting to find out what they're up to!
