Shadowrun for the Xbox 360

One of the best games of all time, that never got a sequal, might just have on in the works for Xbox 360.

Apperantly, a artist by the name Kevin K Hanna, wrote in his resumé about working on Shadowrun for FASA Studios.

When reading through his resumé, all I could find was "Unannounced project (X-Box 360) 2005" and nothing that clearly said "Shadowrun" in it, so don't get too excited just yet.

Shadowrun will reappear next gen as launch title for the next Microsoft system. The co-creator of the Shadowrun universe Jordan Weisman (and founder of FASA) is working closely with Bungie to make the game. The game is a reworked version of the failed "Project Phoenix" as it literally rose from the grave in its re-birthed form of Shadowrun after being canned by MS to focus on Halo 2 development. A skeleton crew second team (comprised mostly of the old Oni team) is doing the work for now. Several FASA employees have visited Bungie's studios recently while work begins on FASA's next title also slated for the next MS console code named Xenon.

I have worked on many projects, ranging from PC games to console, FPS to role-playing. Right now, I am animating for an Xbox 2 project called Shadowrun. It's a first-person shooter based on an old paper RPG of the same name from a couple decades ago.
