Today some very good news has been announced for the BattleCity Community!
After 2 weeks of down-time, BattleCity will relaunch as BattleCity Classic! You can visit the new BattleCity Classic website for the full details!
The relaunch of BattleCity also brings some very big news to the Looble Network! Initially there were talks about shutting down the game or possibly putting it up for sale. After receiving much feedback from the community, it became apparent that there was much support for the continued development of BattleCity; so instead talks shifted towards the possibility of a relaunch.
In order for the relaunch to take place, both parties running BattleCity decided to sit down and work out any remaining issues in order to ensure the success and longevity of the game in the future.
The new terms and agreements officially create a co-ownership of BattleCity. Should the game ever become profitable, there would be a 50/50 split between Weebo & ReMoTe. Furthermore, should either Weebo or ReMoTe ever leave the project, both will have full rights to the last version of code created while in partnership. This ensure that the game will never be shut down unless both partners wish for such. Lastly, this agreement will carry over to the JAVA version of BattleCity so long as it be released while both partners are still working together.
In a nutshell, this means BattleCity still has a bright future ahead and Looble will continue to be a part of it! Be sure to update our bookmarks to the new official website at http://battlecity.org!
