Developer Bulkhead Interactive has officially confirmed that Battalion 1944 is no longer coming to PS4, with refunds due to be sent out to all console Kickstarter backers.

This new came as the Derby-based studio announced that it had cut ties with former publisher Square Enix, with an “exciting new chapter” promised for players on PC, with Battalion: Legacy launching for free on Steam later this month.

“We are deeply disappointed that Battalion 1994 never made it to console and we will be refunding all console Kickstarter backers. Thank you to everyone that backed the console version and we're sorry it has taken so long to rectify this,” said a statement from Bulkhead.

“We appreciate the passionate support we received from the fans of Battalion and old-school shooters.”

Battalion was first funded through Kickstarter, appealing to fans of classic WWII games like Call of Duty and Medal of Honor, with versions for PS4, Xbox One, and PC all promised. The game went on to blast past its stretch goals, before being picked up for publishing by Square Enix Collective, but never ended up releasing on consoles.

  • They should have made it a single player game, instead of multiplayer.

    There's a market for this niche I believe... whereas if you release a multiplayer shooter you end up competing with dozens of titles.
