I (Robin Ek, TGG) just got the chance to do an interview with Daniel Connery about his next-gen Shadowrun proposal to Microsoft. So here's what Connery told us.
A current generation action RPG / multiplayer Shadowrun game, sign me up! 👍
I hope that as well =) And just for the record. I sorted out this review around 4:00 in the morning. So if anything, that really proves that I love the "Shadowrun" universe a whole lot xD
Very excited about this new project. Hope Microsoft to give this a go.
I would cry if they did a sequel to the FPS in 2007
The game wasn't all that bad really, but most of the fans wanted a new game of the same sort as the old-school "Shadowrun games" (thus the huge success with Harebrained Schemes "Shadowrun" games).
Which one the SNES (fairly easy) or the Sega Megadrive (Genesis) which IMHO was more challenging? Still, I did enjoy them both.
Imo, it was the "Shadowrun" title that ruined that game, because the hardcore fans turned away from the game as it was nothing like the old games...And that's rather sad, since the game is anything but bad.
That game was so ahead of it's time, they should add that to backwards compatibility and have it in their GWG membership thing, would be awesome to see that game get populated again.
Word on that man =) That's also why I worked really hard to nail down this interview (I was done around 4:00 in the morning Swedish time).
Its already on BC :) . It holds up pretty well too. Could use a remake for improved hit detection, though.
I really loved that game and I enjoy the RPGs too. But that was my favourite multiplayer FPS for a long time.
I'm cool with this, but I don't like the thought of having this title as a Xbox One exclusive...
They need exclusives.
Fair enough, I suppose. So I take it that the game "might" be a Xbox One exclusive for a year or so :P
Do you want exclusives or not?
I don't have anything against exclusives, but it seems to be a rather sensitive topic on N4G, since people down vote everyone that says anything negative against exclusives. Nevertheless, "if" the game ends up being a Xbox One exclusive title, then I guess that I would just have to buy the console.
Doubt it would be an exclusive if they indeed make a sequel. The first one was on PC.
The 2007 game was released to both PC and Xbox 360.
Well MS does own the IP, they just licensed it out for the most recent game made. So it could be exclusive just on that alone
Like its not going to be on PC?
If it's the same garbage they did in the 360 days. Keep on dreaming and pass that idea by.
The 2007 game was not an RPG, you are just chiming in to bitch.
yeah, I was bitching at the fact that 2007 game was basura.of the highest grade.
Nope, it was an multiplayer only FPS game.
I hardly doubt it, because that's not the vibes that I got while talking to Dan Connery for hours last night.
Wow its getting so bad that people are dreaming up Xbox exclusives and then passing it on as news.
Just check the down votes *cough cough*
Do you mean for your comment?
but i thought MS doesn't do gens anymore? add that to the BS list.
@ slate91 "Its already on BC :) . It holds up pretty well too. Could use a remake for improved hit detection, though." - Ah, nice! You don't happen to have a link to that one?
Not sure of a link since Im on my phone. But you should be able to search the xbox store and find it
Sounds like it would be awesome. MS should have given the green light on this one a long time ago.
They should have given the green light on a lot of games a long time ago.
Shut up and take my money!!
Please bring more shadowrun! I'd hope it would go multiplatform just to increase the amount of sales.
Sounds like he barely even has a pitch. Everything is up grabs as it's "completely up to Microsoft." Yet he wants a huge budget and are enticing it as an exclusive. Its good that he praises Harebrained Schemes, as those games are fantastic, but thats the reason to give such a project to them. If they can make a great game from a small budget then they deserve a crack at huge funding from microsoft. This guy sounds like all those crowd funders who talks about grand scope and ideas with enough money, but wont turn out a quality product in the end.
The FPS was ok but lacking (a campaign with some Shaowrun lore would have made a nice addition) I'd love to see a high budget RPG for Xbox On though,
I honestly think that Shadowrun and Socom are probably the most under developed properties ever. Shadowrun was so unique on that it had a chance to be something really special. It was fun as hell.
