One of the most frequent criticisms of Spartan Games is that long periods of time go by without new information about the future of their games. Well, in a lengthy blog post on the Spartan Games website, Spartan Neil has laid out the plan for the Firestorm Galaxy in 2017.
The post mentions key dates for releases this year, the most important of which are new editions of both Firestorm Armada and Planetfall in August. There’s also talk of a “common development language” between the two systems. This doesn’t mean both games will share the same rules (that would be silly), but it’ll be easier to go from one to the other.
Of course, some people will inevitably point out that Spartan has made statements like this before and not delivered on them. However, 2017 is a make-or-break year for Firestorm. The best advice would be to simply watch and see how the rest of 2017 unfolds. If the plans are stuck to, it’s going to be an insanely cool year for both games.
In a separate post, Spartan also revealed a new Overseers ship called the Deliverance Engine, as part of their Easter offers. No information is yet available on if or when it’ll be available separately at a later date.
