Hawken snapped up by Reloaded Games

After languishing in limbo for the better part of a year, mech shooter Hawken will apparently be returning, thanks to a deal with Reloaded Games. The APB: Reloaded publisher signed a deal late last week to buy Hawken from Meteor Entertainment.

“I’m pretty excited to now be able to announce that Reloaded Games is the new owner of Hawken,” Producer Joshua Clausen posted on Facebook. “It’s a seriously great honor to be a part of the Hawken story, and I want to see it thrive. Once the forums are up we will post more information (they’ve been taking a lot longer than I was hoping).”

Hawken’s future was highly uncertain following a string of business disasters in 2014. Developer Adhesive Games went bankrupt while publisher Meteor Entertainment was forced to close one of its offices last year and take its website offline. Hawken is currently available to play for free via Steam.

Great, now they will add weapons that cost 40$ to own them permanently. Or just 15$ for a month. Maybe also Friendlist extender too.

Someday, I’ll be able to play Hawken when they finally decide to support a bigger screen.

Cyroselle I’d kill for a Zone of Enders MMO and not jsut some lobby based arena shooter…or a macross/Robotech MMO.

The game could benefit from an explorable world IMO. The lobby shooter aspect felt too constricted.

Agreed. It felt more like a mobile suit or landmate, taking a page from Masumune Shirow’s Appleseed universe.

Agreed! I always wished there was an Armored Core available for PC.

Midgetsnowman WildarX Project Nimbus seems promising, but I refuse to reccomend anything on early access. Still, worth keeping an eye out for.

FineFineValentine Talk about putting the cart before the horse. Better release a full game before thinking forward, eh?
