Hey everyone!

Mitch here, with just enough bandwidth to pull my head out of polishing the game to let you know that Shadowrun: Hong Kong has an official release date! During the Kickstarter, we estimated that we would release the game in August… and that’s why we’re releasing the game in August! 

August 20th, 2015 at 10am PST, to be specific. On Steam, GoG, & Humble.

Here's some nice new wallpaper-sized promotional art!

Estimating, scheduling and delivering something as complex as SR:HK is tough and I’m extremely proud of the entire team for their focus, dedication, and hard work. I’d like to say a special thank you to our ace Producer, Chris Klimecky and my co-Director, Mike McCain for their work in getting the game to you on time. Mike joined me at the helm a ways back so I could dedicate more time to writing, and his work has been first rate - just like it was on Shadowrun: Dragonfall and Shadowrun: Dragonfall - Director’s Cut.

The game’s really coming together and it’s amazing to see the team’s hard work and creative collaboration on-screen. Making games is an incredible challenge but making games with these folks is an absolute pleasure.

We’ll be sending out another update in the next couple of weeks regarding how to get your keys from BackerKit and an update on all the remaining Kickstarter rewards.

In the meantime, here’s a few new screenshots & gifs we grabbed for you. Thanks for staying with us since January and we’ll see you August 20th!

      Loved the previous 2 games! Looking forward to this one. First one was great, 2nd was amazing, hoping this one follows in its footsteps. If you keep making these, I will keep funding and buying.

      I want to add that whoever wrote all the dialouge made a heck of a job. I read every single line of it and never got bored, on the contrary, I just kept on reading and couldn't stop! I was basically flabbergasted as I otherwise tend to skip after a while, but not with Dragonfall. I couldn't get enough. Quality through and through.

      Currently replaying Dragonfall through the Director's cut and i'm looking forward to play Hong Kong. DF has marked my soul seeply, it's a really great great game, the expectation for HK is HUGE! I love your work guys'n'girls, good luck on the final month.

      You're the pride of Kickstarter. Very entertaining and well done games (far beyond my original expectations) and on time to boot! :D Actually, you're in the top 10 favourite games ever and as I've been gaming for 40 years I think my standards are fairly high.
      I'm probably delirious now, but I had as much fun playing Dragonfall as the epic Witcher 3, that says something about what you did right with such a small budget. Thank you, all. :)

      Succinct and to the point. I've come to expect no less from HBS. Looking forward to it, Hoo-rah!

      Aww, no sneak peeks of the revamped Matrix. Screenshots look fantastic, though! Looking forward to running around in Shadowrun HK soon.

      Thanks! And I wish you that the Hong Kong was better than the previous parts;)

      The Steam keys will be handed out 08.20 or earlier?

      Ty for releasing the game the day before my birthday. It will make for a VERY happy day.

      Fantastic news, guys! Well played :D I also second what Shiroco said; wouldn't this make it the first KS to actually hit their estimated date? ^_^

      If you actually pull the august release date off then this ks will be the first one to stay true to their estimated release date during the campaign. Hopefully the game is ready and good (please be as good as Dragonfall DC ;D).
