Battalion 1944 developer offers unconditional refunds to Kickstarter backers.

Bulkhead, the badass developers behind the old-school WW2 shooter Battalion 1944 (or as we like to call it, Battalion: Legacy), are making some serious moves. They’re handing out refunds to their Kickstarter backers without even asking questions. That’s right, people! They’re owning up to the fact that they couldn’t deliver on all the wild promises they made for the game. Respect!

Now, let’s be clear, these refunds aren’t just for the cool kids on a specific platform or those who pledged a ton of cash. Nope, it’s open season for all Battalion 1944’s original backers, no matter where they’re playing or how much they’ve invested. If you put your trust in these guys and supported them from day one, they’ve got your back.

In a joint statement with the badasses at Splash Damage, Bulkhead’s CEO, Joe Brammer, gave a shoutout to the Kickstarter supporters, saying, “Without you, we wouldn’t exist today. We appreciate your belief in this project as much as we do. You rock!” And Richard Jolly, one of the bigwigs at Splash Damage, promised to learn from their mistakes and show their commitment through action. That’s what I’m talking about!

If you’re one of the lucky folks who backed Battalion 1944 on Kickstarter, keep an eye on your inbox. They’re sending out emails with all the details on how to claim your refund. They’ve got your money, and now they want to give it back. Talk about doing the right thing!

But wait, there’s more! Remember when they said the console version was happening? Yeah, about that… it’s been canceled, my friends. The folks at Bulkhead admit they got a little too ambitious with Battalion 1944 and bit off more than they could chew. We’ve all been there, right? No shame, guys!

And here’s the kicker: if you were one of the console Kickstarter backers, you’re not left out in the cold. Bulkhead is finally stepping up and refunding your hard-earned cash. It might have taken them almost a year, but better late than never, right?

Now, let’s not forget about the future. Bulkhead is teaming up with the legendary Splash Damage, the creators of the Enemy Territory franchise. These guys know how to make games that kick ass, so it’s safe to say that good things are on the horizon.

The creative director of Bulkhead, Howard Philpot, sums it up perfectly in a video they released with this announcement. He says, “We’ve got our confidence back! We don’t have to hide anymore. Our original believers are getting paid back, and this is our chance for a fresh start.” You gotta love that fighting spirit!

So, kudos to you, Bulkhead and Splash Damage. You’re showing the gaming world how it’s done. Keep on rocking, be bold, and remember to always stay true to your fans. You’ve got a new beginning, and we can’t wait to see what you have in store for us next!
