The age old battle of owning right to SDF Macros redistribution outside of Japan. It’s a shame that this is dragging on, as Battletech has been seemingly crushed every moment in it’s life, from originally going by Battledroids and having to be renamed care of Lucas co, then buying art assets it turns out that had been sold prior to New harmony gold.
Rumor is that it’s over the robotech movie stuck in development hell. Which is a double shame as I don’t see it having mass appeal, and the latest Harebrained Schemes game was moving along quite well.
It’s bizzare in a world where making things with Japanese assets is less money than doing realestate and it’s more profitable to go to litigation rather than licensing them.
I wonder if it’s even possible to discuss BattleTech: The Crescent Hawk’s Inception, using the included drawings, and media in this litigious age.
