Something Something Jagged Alliance

The Jagged Alliance website has a "coming soon..." message, seemingly teasing an announcement about the turn-based tactics series. This went up before last night's game awards, leading to speculation an announcement would come during the show, but that didn't happen, so we'll just have to wait and see where this goes.

Since THQ Nordic now owns the IP my expectations are extremely low.

Haven't their last releases been Titan Quest DLC and a PC port of a Playstation 2 game?

You've not paid much attention have you?

This year's bigger releases:
Battle Chasers
Elex
Black Mirror
Spellforce 3

There's a handful of smaller ones plus a few that they brought to Steam.

I've been following them closely and they have the right mindset to release a proper Jagged Alliance. No one managed yet, so we can't get our hopes up too high, but I think they can do it.

I know it'll annoy the classic JA fans, but Jagged Alliance - Back in Action and Crossfire were pretty fun indie-ish games.

THQ Nordic is still better than Strategy First.

Did you ever play what came out of that mess, Jagged Edge? Game had some serious flaws but sadly was a better attempt than the more recent ones.

Basically, the franchise is DOA, and the best you can hope for is either a spiritual successor or more mods. I did a lot of 1.14 earlier in the year, and it's a blast, but I kind of feel like it's a once every 4 years blast. Maybe 8 years.
