Reloaded Games Acquires Hawken
Reloaded Games, the publisher of APB: Reloaded and Fallen Earth -- both of which were developed by other companies before falling under the Reloaded banner -- has just added another game to its stable.
Meteor Entertainment has turned Hawken over to Reloaded Games, as confirmed on the @PlayHAWKEN Twitter:
I’m pretty excited to *now* be able to announce that Reloaded Games is the new owner of Hawken. It’s an honor we take seriously. -capnjosh

Hawken was a game that looked and felt great, and that got a good share of buzz during its development, but which seemed to get caught up in the wash of similar titles, such as Mechwarrior Online and Titanfall, and never really burst out like some thought it would. Indeed, if this article is correct, then the Meteor crew might have bought into their own hype a bit too much:
Meteor overestimated how popular the game would become, they had even commented that they didn’t need to do any marketing for the game because gamers and the community would sell it to new players. How wrong they were.
So what do you think of the new direction for Hawken?
