Crimson Skies: High Road to Revenge News for Xbox

Platform: Xbox Check Price

Smith & Tinker owns the rights to the FASA properties, including Mechwarrior, Shadowrun and Crimson Skies. A new entry in the Mechwarrior franchise has already been unveiled, but what of the other IPs?

“Most of my time is invested in [Smith & Tinker], but in the wee hours of the night, I spend time thinking about the older properties,” said Smith & Tinker founder Jordan Weisman. “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.”

Things don't look so positive for Shadowrun, though.

"Shadowrun was recently...not treated well...shall we say, so the thought was let a little time pass before approaching that one again," said Weisman.

As with Mechwarrior, outsourced to Piranha Games, it's likely these existing IPs will follow suit.

"The older properties - MechWarrior, Crimson Skies, Shadowrun, those kinds of things - those are kind of grandfathered in," said Weisman. "They're not really what we're all about, and we won't be developing and publishing those ourselves as a result. We'll be, like we are now, talking to other publishers and finding good homes for those.”

The original was on Xbox Live on the Xbox and was my most played online game on that system.
