New Crimson Skies Game A Distinct Possibility

Jordan Weisman founded FASA. Which came up with Mechwarrior, Shadowrun and Crimson Skies. He now runs Smith & Tinker, owns the rights to FASA properties, and is keen on making new games out of them.

One of these titles has already been announced: Piranha's Mechwarrior reboot. But more might be on the way, with Weisman telling GameSpot:

Most of my time is invested in [Smith & Tinker], but in the wee hours of the night, I spend time thinking about the older properties. I think Crimson Skies is something we'd love to get some energy around, and we have some devious plans—we'll see if those materialize.

That'd be nice! But while there's encouraging news on the Mechwarrior and Crimson Skies fronts, Shadowrun fans shouldn't get as excited, as 2007's disastrous multiplayer shooter has Weisman saying "Shadowrun was recently...not treated well...shall we say, so the thought was let a little time pass before approaching that one again".
