Man, for anyone who’s followed Hawken since it’s original reveal, it has been a hell of a ride. Hyped swelled after the initial reveal, making way for comics, and a proposed TV series, all based on a game that wasn’t even out yet.
One could say that the original developers, Adhesive Games, bit off more than they could chew and then subsequently imploded. 505 Games came in to revive the game, and it’s been practically coasting since. Today, though, 505 announced that the PC version of Hawken would be “sunset” as they call it, January 18, 2018.
The game isn’t going anywhere, per se, but the PC version is. The development team will be shifting their focus to the console versions. Maybe after that version of Hawken reaches some semblance of fruition, the game will be revived for a second time on PC, but I’m not crossing my fingers.
