Yes, HBS has sunset BATTLETECH.I never implied (or at least didn't mean to) that they did offer to provide it, just that I was hoping for it. I may have confused it with MW5 having fragments of the OA faction left in, either way I was hoping for another couple of large expansions, stand alone games or sequels in the future with new campaigns, moving the timeline on, or in different settings such as the Clan home worlds, just not the endless stream of small to medium scale additions as in the CK and EU franchises. It is sad that it has come to what seems like a sudden and early end.
But the idea... the hope, really, of a BATTLETECH 2 at some point in the next 3-5 years is not something that has been wholly taken off the table by either HBS or Paradox.
HBS is working up a pair of Projects right now. I’ll be preordering both...
...but then I am a fan of HBS and not the most objective of consumers in this particular matter. : )
