2/28/2002: Official Update on Upcoming Mekton Products
Lisa Pondsmith, General Manager of R.Talsorian Games, and Jim Milligan of Atomic Rocket Games, have provided official updates on the status of upcoming Mekton releases.

Quicksilver Blues, originally scheduled for Sept. 2001 release, has been postponed due to various stategic reasons. According to ARG spokesperson, Jim Milligan, "It's on hold until there are more new RTG products on the shelf to bolster its sales. Previous sales of Mekton products have been good, but Mekton, being a niche (Anime Mecha Roleplaying) within a niche (Anime Roleplaying) within a niche (Roleplaying) has never done the numbers of other RTG games. R. Talsorian really truly loves what we've done with QuickSilver Blues, and wants it to do well. I can't say as I argue with their logic, and am willing to wait until it's the right time to put it out."

Gundam Senki, however, is still on schedule. Lisa Pondsmith reports, "We have a translator to work on Gundam and we should be announcing at GAMA time, around the middle of March, the contents of the two Gundam books to be broken out of the Japanese edition. One to be scheduled for third quarter 2002 and one for fourth quarter."

11/29/2001: Squelching the Rumors (excerpted from the R.Tal News page)
"We hear that there is a rumor out there that there will be a D-20 Mekton version released. This isn't true. In fact, there are no plans for anyone to release any RTG games in D-20 versions."

Mekton Gundam! (excerpted from the R.Tal News page)
