Old Axes: I found this while going through my old Battletech stuff

Catalyst Game Labs Projected 1st Quarter 2010 Lineup
BattleTech 25th Anniversary Introductory Box Set [Actual street date: February 2012]
A Time of War: The BattleTech RPG [2010]
Technical Readout: 3060 [2009?]
HexPack: Lakes and Rivers [2010]
Record Sheets: 3060 [2010]
Record Sheets: 3075 [2009]
Historicals: Operation Klondike [2010]
First Strike: BattleCorps Anthology Vol 2 [2010]
Warrior Trilogy: Anniversary Omnibus, Author's Definitive Edition [???]
A Bonfire of Worlds [e-pub 2009 / hardcopy ???]

When this list first came down, I made a joke about how 2011 was going to be a big year for Battletech. In fact, I expected this post to be a bit petty concerning missed deadlines, but credit where credit is due, most of this stuff hit on target or before that.

One exception was the physical novels, but Battletech has had so many publishing issues that I'm shocked they even promised those. The other was a massive 25th Anniversary Boxed Set which is an unequivocal fail, but a minor one considering the reliability for every other product on this list.

I'm just saying that I hate Battletech as much as I love it, but really, for what it's worth...

good job Catalyst Game Labs. BZ.

Glancing through the old news posts, apparently that was a pretty good year for Catalyst et al all around. MekTek was doing big things, Leviathans was going full steam ahead, and CthulhuTech was hatching too.

Huh. Didn't know that. Good for them.
