For Immediate Release

Catalyst Game Labs and ArcLight are pleased to announce they have entered into a new, long-term licensing agreement for the Shadowrun intellectual property. ArcLight is already developing a full Shadowrun publication program, including the award-winning Twentieth Anniversary Edition and continuing with the five essential hardback rules expansions to the core rulebook.

“It’s exciting to see Shadowrun reach a new, world audience,” states Randall N. Bills, Managing Developer for Catalyst Game Labs. “Over the last several years Catalyst has worked to re-spark interest in Shadowrun in a variety of foreign markets, showing that the setting is as dynamic and compelling as ever.”

ArcLight published Shadowrun Fourth Edition several years ago and its success has led ArcLight to re-sign a full Shadowrun license.

Keisuke Kajiwara, Chief Director of the ArcLight Publishing Division states “ArcLight is very excited about the continued distribution of Shadowrun games in Japan, where there is already a dedicated following.”

Look to for future announcements concerning this exciting development!
