The legal battle seems to be over and the first update is being worked on.
It was a long time coming, but Rune 2 finally released last year. The adventure game based around Norse myth came to some mixed reviews, but overall the game performed well when it released on PC. The game, unfortunately, had a share of bad luck post-release when Human Head Studios was purchased by Bethesda, leaving a legal dispute between the developer and the publisher of Rune 2, Ragnarok. Well, it seems that dispute is now settled and the first patch is on its way.
Via a statement from Ragnarok’s new development team, they have acquired the source code for the game. While they don’t go into details as of yet, they do say the first major update can now be worked on. The game had a lot of issues that have gone unaddressed due to the legal battle. Now with it settled, hopefully those issues can be ironed out.
Rune 2 is available now exclusively on PC via the Epic Games Store with a Steam version planned sometime in 2020.
