It has been almost ten years since the release of Shadowrun Returns and somehow, the trilogy never ended up making it over to consoles. That will finally be changing, with Paradox announcing Shadowrun Trilogy: Console Edition this week, as well as plans to bring the games to Xbox Game Pass.
The Shadowrun Trilogy includes three games – Shadowrun Returns, Shadowrun Dragonfall Director's Cut and Shadowrun Hong Kong Extended Edition. The games are all turn-based tactical RPGs with heavy cyberpunk themes:
The Shadowrun Trilogy: Console Edition package will be heading to PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S and Nintendo Switch on the 21st of June, so there is not much longer to wait. The trilogy will also be available through Xbox Game Pass, although it is unclear if the trilogy will be available on both XGP for console and PC, or just console.
Microsoft has owned the rights to the Shadowrun IP for video games for decades but has never really capitalised on it. Perhaps that will finally change this generation, especially now that Xbox has so many good RPG studios under its wing.
