APB: Reloaded Developer To Resume Development of Hawken
Remember Hawken? it was a very promising free to play mech action/sim game for the PC in active development, until it ran into some troubles, and work on it was suspended. However, it appears now that the game will be re-entering the land of the living, thanks to the developers of APB: Reloaded, Reloaded Games, who have acquired the property.
“I’m pretty excited to now be able to announce that Reloaded Games is the new owner of Hawken,” New producer Joshua “capnjosh” Clausen of K2 Network said on Facebook.
“It’s a seriously great honor to be a part of the Hawken story, and I want to see it thrive.”
In addition to this, a list of update priorities for the game going forward was also shared on Facebook:
- Fix password reset
- Get Forums working again
- Fix more deployment stuff
- Fix a bunch of tools systems
- Fix more back end systems
- Plan new updates and future changes
Of course, it is not entirely sure what this might mean- while APB: Reloaded can certainly be viewed as a successful relaunch, there are some who feel Reloaded’s support for the game was and is lacking. It remains to be seen whether or not they can give Hawken the attention it deserves.
