Hello Star Wars: Battlecry fans (and the First Strike fans who are also reading this),

Today we have a big bit of news for you folks - the First Strike team is merging with the Star Wars: Battlecry team!
As Chad (new project leader of First Strike explains), 'When the First Strike team looked into switching to the Unreal 4 game engine, it just made sense to look into combining forces instead of starting completely over on a new engine. Both teams have a desire to develop a PC focused Star Wars game that simulates the the role of a trooper fighting for the Rebel or Imperial forces in large scale combined arms battles.' 
 When developing a game for a galaxy far, far away, almost everything has to be created from scratch. One of the things we're exploring at the moment is importing First Strike's large collection of models into the Unreal engine. If assets require improvements or modifications, this can be done but it will hopefully mean things will get done quicker and we can produce the free stand alone Star Wars game fans have been wanting all along. 

On top of that, the fact that we are merging with a very experienced and skilled team is exciting and we look forward to the future! 

We will keep you updated if anything else changes about the game/team.

Thank you for your support and patience,

The Star Wars: Battlecry team (and the newly merged First Strike members!) 

Btw, here's the awesome pic team member Jo Greve made for us to celebrate the merge!

We hope to release a working Alpha version sometime this year, 2014. The actual window is rather large as we cannot be certain when this elaborate electronic puzzle will be competed. I can tell you now that the artist are just as hyped to see things coming together as you are! It will be an exciting advent when we are ready to share Battlecry with you all!

Well, realism is defined as a state of existence. . .by this logic, if we make the game and it exists, it is real.

It truly is grand we make this game of Star Wars brand. The delight you will find is on the forefront of our mind. We sincerely hope you enjoy this game given birth from a desperate ploy! We all hath dreamed of a Battlefront 3, and this is our chance to bring it to thee! We may draw a measure of slanderous hate for the time we force you all to wait, but surely you can pity that we had to move to Cloud City? But enough rambling, put the past on the rack, with a new course set, we're back on track!

Gamespy... there is a lot of useful LAN emulators with many users
anyway SWBF2 had very low online for the last time
this is also motivation for developers to get Battlecry to release
also new SWBF(3) is going to be closed for community, modding... and no one knows how good going to be

Indeed, it's all on us now until EA reveals their hand. I wonder what their game will be like. . .
