I agree with you there aramike01, at least we still have BCM.

I understand the business side of the equation too though I disagree with the migration to the console platform. The PC v. Console war goes through various cycles. Each side has its upperhand in the cycle at any given time.

The only constant is this cyclic struggle is PC. Console platforms are to static IMO compared to the PC platform.

Piracy of console titles is greater than PC titles. The stories that I can tell of my tenure in the sands of Lawrence biggrin.gif

uh, well, ummm...., BUMMER!

At least BCM is still coming! *on knees begging* PLEASE don't have a change of heart on that one....

One thing about the computer world, though; don't count the chips 'till they're on the shelf.

Well, the guy is working on the BattleCruiser series for more than 10 years now. It's very good that Derek had the motivation to work that long on this project. One time or another, we all need to change air.

And for BCTE. Damn, I was looking forward to throw an insurgent through an airlock. Just for the heck of it. smile.gif

So Derek, you want to do a game that kids could play with? Please, don't do a Barney simulator, pleaaaase smile.gif

I'm a little sad about losing BC3020AD, but all in all we really aren't losing all that much. Everything we really need is in BCM and then we have GCO, so all in all I guess it's not that bad.

Somewhat sad to hear but when you really think about it as Eclipse said not really losing all that much just 3020. Still got BCM and GCO so more than enough to tide us over for a few years. smile.gif

I didn't say this in my earlier post, but all I truly wish is for us to continue to have that link to Derek that he gives those who play his game.

Cheer up everybody BCM will be out soon and one never knows what could happen. The popularity of BCM could sway SC's decision, but I can't say that I blame him as ten years is a long time. A change could help refresh the spirits and we all know how that can be. Good Luck with your new engine SC and keep us informed.

I agree with Aramike. At least we still have BCM coming down the pipe.

It's also nice that Derek chose to give us a heads up on this here on the board instead of us reading about it in some magazine. It shows he truly cares for his fans, and for that I am one grateful BC fan! smile.gif

Wow... shocked.

Like everyone has said already, at least we'll have BCM and GCO. Hell, it's going to take me years to tire of BCM, let alone GCO. And by the time I do get tired of playing those two, I'll have kids of my own, and they can play Derek's new line of games. :P

I'm shocked as well, but still say good luck SC in whatever Project ABC turns out to be.

Just like BC3K v2.0x, BCM and especially GCO, will continue to grow. So, I don't see what the furor is all about. I added many freebie features in v2.0x that were never part of its spec. I could've rolled them into BCM if I wanted. I did because I wanted to extend the life of v2.0x without rushing out with BCM. Because GCO is MMP and I can just keep adding stuff to it, that should be a clue that while it may be the last title in the BC series, it will be around for awhile.

I've been away for awhile. I saw the news the BCTE was no more. My question is, will we

still be able to walk in FP on the planets?

If we are, are there other marines that we fight? Or do we take out the bases? BTW, i just saw the new screenshots. They keep looking better and better.

Yep. FP on planets is still in - nothing to do with FP in buildings/ships.

Heh, last night I was testing something and drop-launched from a moving shuttle, switched on my jetpack and made a beeline for a vehicle I saw parked near an Insurgent base. By the time I landed and was running across the terrain (jetpack ran out of charge), some ******* grabbed the vehicle and took off - destination unknown.
