Howdy, partners! How are you? I thought I’d give you a brief update on the SteamWorld Heist development status and use this opportunity to answer some frequently asked questions about what we’re currently up to.
SteamWorld Heist is out and it feels great!
SteamWorld Heist is out on Steam, PS4/Vita, Wii U, Nintendo 3DS and iOS. It’s taken us three years to come this far. Three years?! Yeah, that’s right. It’s a long time and at this point we’re more than ready to let Captain Piper and her hearty crew steer the ship on their own. Knowing our rag-tag robots are in your capable hands feels great. Thanks for your support in making SteamWorld Heist a resounding success!
Will there be more content for SteamWorld Heist?
We’re not ruling out the possibility, but on the other hand we don’t have any plans for big content updates or DLC.
What about Android and Xbox One?
The plan was to release SteamWorld Heist on Xbox One and Android this year. While those versions may still happen in the future, we’re frantically working on a new game that’s eating up more and more time. At Image & Form we’re only 18 people and always have to choose our next venture carefully. Because of time constraints we’ve decided to focus on the new title and put the Android and Xbox One versions of Heist on hold.
I understand this is a letdown for many of you. Please ask me any questions about our decision in the comments. I’ll be happy to answer 🙂
So, what are we working on?
We’re cooking up something special for Nintendo Switch. It’s a secret for now and we’ll announce the game when the time’s ready! Follow us on Twitter, Facebook and YouTube to stay up to date with our latest news. I think you’ll be happy to learn what it is 😉
