BattleDawn was the founding game of Tacticsoft 13 years ago, catapulting to the top of charts all over the internet and taking the company to where it is now, with SuperMechs as a global hit and Earth Arena complementing Battle Dawn on mobile.
This has however also lead to growing challenges, SuperMechs has required more and more work to reach its potential and manage its growth, leaving little time left within Tacticsoft for BattleDawn, ultimately making the upkeep of this game into a challenge.
As the company shifted to better accommodate SuperMechs, the required skills to keep BattleDawn running have gotten sparse.
We are happy to inform you that as of 1/2/2019, Gato Games has agreed to acquire Battle Dawn and Earth Arena from Tacticsoft. Gato Games was founded by a veteran BD player, Andrei, also known for leading Championship Era winner DoCE, with the express purpose of bring Battle Dawn’s unique experience to the modern era.
With the aid of the existing BattleDawn team and the involvement of some old players and former staff, Gato Games will focus on bringing BattleDawn to new heights and working on creating it an exciting future. This way Gato Games can work together with the community to create the next 10 years of BattleDawn,
As part of this process, Ilona and Simen have been rehired to the team. After the deal is closed, Gato Games will immediately begin identifying and addressing the most major issues facing BattleDawn and work hard to bring more players to the game. There will be a server migration within weeks of the finalisation of the deal and Gato Games intends to update BattleDawn and explore a future for its recent spinoff, Earth Arena, as well.
Tacticsoft and Gato Games hope to satisfy both communities to their best extent this way and we hope you are excited for this new chapter for BattleDawn and SuperMechs as we are.
