World War II Shooter Battalion 1944’s Kickstarter Campaign Ends in Success, New Game Teased

March 6, 2016Written by Zarmena Khan


Bulkhead Interactive’s World War II shooter, Battalion 1944, has managed to raise £317,281 through 10,096 backers as its Kickstarter campaign finally ended this past week. The game is fully funded for a console and PC release and several stretch goals have been met as well.

Although the game didn’t raise enough funds for a single-player campaign among some other features like British forces and cosmetic unlocks, the developer will be running a PayPal slacker backer campaign for one week only to raise additional funds. Once the PayPal campaign ends, an official Battalion 1944 store will go live with the option to pre-order the game and obtain alpha/beta access. 

As for what’s next, Bulkhead Interactive claims that the real fun will begin now as it commences development on the game. The developer will be holding Q&A sessions, livestreams, and will also make an appearance at GDC 2016. Executive Producer, Joe Brammer, promised fans that the team won’t be cutting corners at any point during development and will make a game that rivals shooters from the likes of Activision and DICE. 

In the same update, Bulkhead Interactive also teased a new game that it’s been working on for consoles and PC for a 2016 release.

Another exciting piece of news is that Bulkhead Interactive will soon be officially announcing their second title that they have been working on since the release of ‘Pneuma: Breath of Life’ in February 2015. The new unannounced title will be released on both PC and Console this year.

With Battalion 1944 317% funded, expect the game to release in May 2017 for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.
