The State of Shadowbane @ Official Site
by Dhruin, 2006-06-30 22:18:00Ashen Temper has posted an open letter on the State of Shadowbane at the official site and revealing a new dev company called 'Stray Bullet Games' rising from the remnants of Wolfpack. Here's a partial snip:
It has been quite a while since the last State of Shadowbane address, and if there was ever a time we desperately needed one, this is it.
If you are just tuning in, let me begin by officially stating that Shadowbane lives on!
There was a time there when the doomsayers were legion, prospects looked bleak, and the Twilight of Aerynth's Gods looked nigh. But the community spoke. The powers that be listened. Shadowbane survives!
All is not as it was, however; there have been some changes. Key developers from Wolfpack Studios have come together to form an independent development company called Stray Bullet Games, LLC. Stray Bullet Games is helping Ubisoft keep Shadowbane alive and well.
Many familiar faces over here that still work on Shadowbane, and in recent days you've seen us on the forums; Ben, Dave, Kellion, Meridian, and Nazgul are all still devoted to the game. We have lost Sachant, be we've picked up a new member on the Community Team for Shadowbane. Many of you may know Jinx as a member of the Frag Dolls and a Community Manager on Red Steel, but she is also a long-time member of the Shadowbane Community. Veterans of the game may recall her as Valkyrie from the Shadowbane Sanctum fan site and as Feyair of the original Bard and Herald program.
And then, of course, there is myself. I will be not only working on the Community Team but I have also taken on the role as leading up the design efforts for Shadowbane. I definitely have some big shoes to fill looking back at those who held the position previously.
