Shadowrun Returns developer teases more Shadowrun for 2015

Michael McWhertor is a journalist with more than 17 years of experience covering video games, technology, movies, TV, and entertainment.

The developer of cyberpunk fantasy role-playing game Shadowrun Returns, Harebrained Schemes, is hinting at a new Shadowrun project. On Kickstarter, the company teases, "Shadowrun returns to Kickstarter January 2015."

Harebrained Schemes doesn't offer much beyond the promise of something new for the Shadowrun property, but a sequel or expansion seems likely. The developer's Shadowrun Returns, released in 2013, was well-received by critics and players.

Shadowrun Returns was a standout Kickstarter success. Harebrained Schemes raised more than $1.8 million through a Kickstarter campaign in 2012, and released the game on a variety of PC and mobile platforms in 2013. The developer released an expansion, Dragonfall, and the stand-alone Shadowrun: Dragonfall Director's Cut in 2014.

We've reached out to Harebrained Schemes to see what it has planned for its return to Kickstarter.
