Harebrained Schemes, the developer best known for Shadowrun Returns, has announced that it is, once again, bringing its next project to Kickstarter. EntitledBattletech, the game is of the turn-based strategy variety and is based on the classic military fiction franchise of the same name.
“Harebrained Schemes is pleased to announce their return to Kickstarter this Fall to partner with Backers in co-funding the creation of Battletech,” reads the statement on the official site. “Jordan Weisman, the creator of Battletech and MechWarrior, is back with the first turn-based Battletech game for PC in over two decades.”
Battletech made its first appearance on the PC back in 1988. Conceived by Westwood, the turn-based RPG was later spun off as a combat simulation series dubbed MechWarrior.
