We’ve had an amazing few weeks raising money for Evo 2013 and breast cancer research, but all of this attention has naturally made people wonder about the future of Skullgirls. Well, after months of waiting, I can finally answer one our most-asked question.
Since we first announced our intention to bring Skullgirls to the PC, people have been clamoring for updates. But I’m ecstatic to report that Autumn Games is in the final stages of signing an agreement with Marvelous AQL to fund and publish the PC version of Skullgirls, and work will begin on the PC version in the coming weeks.
We presented Marvelous with two options: a relatively quick port that would mirror the feature set of the console releases, and a slower port with expanded multiplayer functionality such as lobbies. Marvelous AQL has graciously opted for the second option.
Once we begin working on it we expect the project to take around four months to complete. As we get closer to release, we’ll have more information for you about the public beta, what new features you can expect, and much more.
And, like before, the PC version will be released on pretty much every digital distribution platform: Gamefly, GamersGate, GameStop PC Download, Origin, and Steam.
We hope you’re as excited as we are by this new partnership! And, once again, everyone at Lab Zero would like to thank our long-suffering fans for their patience!
