JoWood and Hudson Games Uncertain [UPDATE 25/03]

By Daavpuke, Posted 24 Mar 2011

It seems hard times keep coming for JoWood Entertainment. Yesterday, the publisher of great games such as Painkiller released to the public that it will delay the stand-alone add-on for Gothic 4, Arcania – Fall of Setarrif, due for release tomorrow. Since its claim for insolvency, JoWood has been having difficulties finding new investor income and therefore the game will be postponed indefinitely.

This news came right after JoWood’s release of Gothic 3: Forsaken Gods – Enhanced Edition, now available through Steam. Developer Mad Vulture Games spent a year to rework the game with visual enhancement, but also to balance it and refine the quest logic. And as a great fan service, these improvements are also available as a free patch, applicable to all Gothic 3 versions.

What a bunch of mixed messages, but we do hope for the best, as JoWood has offered the world quality titles as cheap as possible and such goodness should be rewarded.

Update 25/03: It seems the hard times keep coming as JoWood has now also announced that their other upcoming title SpellForce 2 – Faith in Destiny will also be postponed indefinitely.

This would be the opportune moment to tell you that Konami’s take-over of Hudson is now also taking a turn for the worst. The snaky giant decided that decades of experience shouldn’t be remembered and has been reported to have cancelled all ongoing development of Hudson games, including Omega Five, Bonk and Bomberman for the 3DS.  Luckily, there’s a sparkle of hope as a spokesperson claimed that Konami hasn’t “distributed any official list of Hudson products yet,” claiming that it isn’t official until they called it. Let’s hope it isn’t, because Bomberman is awesome.
