1C Entertainment has announced that they are working with 3D Realms, the creators of Duke Nukem and Shadow Warrior, to bring Ion Maiden to Nintendo Switch, Xbox One and PlayStation 4 in the second quarter of 2019. The game is currently in early access on PC and will go to full release on the same day as the console builds.
"Presenting games like Ion Maiden to all of 3D Realms' fans is our number one priority," said Mike Nielsen, CEO of 3D Realms. "Partnering with 1C Entertainment means we can make our dedicated community happier by bringing Shelly to consoles."
"I was always a fan of the old-school classic FPS titles Duke Nukem 3D, Blood, Max Payne and Shadow Warrior, so I am super thrilled to partner with a legendary studio such as 3D Realms," said Nikolay Baryshnikov, CEO of 1C Entertainment. "As a global publisher, our goal is to bring top-quality titles to all the gamers around the world, and our cooperation with 3D Realms is a great addition to our portfolio. For me personally, it’s a kid’s dream come true."
If that was not enough for you, both companies will also collaborate on a new unannounced FPS based on the original Quake engine coming to all the same platforms as Ion Maiden.
