Byzantine Productions Pike and Shot is a deep strategy game set during the bloody conflict of the Thirty Years War.
Pike & Shot and Pike & Shot: Campaigns are based on a 32 bit engine. Apple recently brought in rules that require all games to have a 64 bit engine. No further submissions of any kind (including updates) are being accepted for 32-bit games. This sadly means that the Pike & Shot engine cannot be updated on iOS.lk2500 wrote:Will there be an Ipad version?
Obviously this is very frustrating but we didn’t want it to prevent us from supporting the PC version. The problem we have is that we can’t release any PC updates for the original Pike & Shot game as this would break the cross platform multiplayer between PC and iPad. This means that the only way to continue to support it was to create a new base game – hence Pike & Shot: Campaigns.
Because no submissions are now being accepted for 32-bit games on iOS, we cannot release Pike & Shot: Campaigns on iPad.
This does not mean, however, that new content cannot be released for Pike & Shot on iPad, but any such new content will have to be released as in-game downloads in the same way as user content downloads. This does, however, mean that such content cannot use the new features added to the newer version of the engine used in Pike & Shot: Campaigns. This unfortunately means that the Campaigns feature cannot be added to the iPad game.
PC users can continue to keep Pike & Shot on their computers alongside Pike & Shot: Campaigns, allowing them to continue to play cross-platform MP games vs iPad users using Pike & Shot. The two games have separate MP servers.
