Shadowrun Online is getting a #new injection of #funding from its new publisher, Nordic Games. The game should not to be confused with Hairbrained Schemes’ single player Shadowrun series of role-playing games, which are set in the same universe but developed by a different company.
Developed by Cliffhanger Productions and funded mostly through Kickstarter, Shadowrun Online remains in Steam Early Access and is heading towards a release window of Q2 2015 for the Linux, Mac and Windws PC.
Nordic Games has since picked up the game, adding it to a long list of newly acquired franchises that includes Red Faction, Darksiders, and de Blob–properties picked up after the demise of THQ.
“We are excited to cooperate with Cliffhanger Productions on multiple levels: some of us spent copious amounts of hours in the Shadowrun universe (armed with pen and paper), plus visiting Cliffhanger’s studio takes 15 minutes with public transportation to check out the latest internal build, so we can collaborate closely,” Nordic’s Reinhard Pollice said.
“It just clicked between Nordic and us – we know and trust them to give Shadowrun the attention it deserves,” added Cliffhanger Productions co-founder Jan Wagner.
