Smith & Tinker
founder Jordan Weisman
recently spoke about his plans for the other FASA
IPs he licensed from Microsoft.
In a recent interview with Gamespot
, Weisman teased, "I think Crimson Skies is something we'd love to get some energy around, and we have some devious plans--we'll see if those materialize." Intriguing!Shadowrun
fans, however, shouldn't expect to be nearly as intrigued -- at least not anytime soon. "Shadowrun was recently...not treated well...shall we say, so the thought was let a little time pass before approaching that one again," Weisman admitted.
As for the beloved MechWarrior
franchise, the series reboot
is currently in development by Piranha Games for PC and Xbox 360. Smith & Tinker plans to farm out development of these old IPs to other studios over time, so if you're a fancy studio head with a clever idea for a Crimson Skies
revival, feel free to give Weisman a call. Like, now.
