I read somewhere (possibly Interplay magazine?) that there was a third game planned for the series. Now I know it wasn't produced but does anyone know anything else about it?

Even if it's just a handful of notes, it would be interesting to see.

I found the following in Metagaming's Interplay magazine #6. Plans seemed to be sketchy:

Quote:
There is a third Microgame already planned for the Helltank series. We may do a four player Metagame version. Given the good response, i.e., "sales", you'll see a new item in this series about every nine months.

To the best of my knowledge a third Microgame (mentioned in Interplay 6) planned for the HELLTANK series never materialized... Phil Kosnett was the designer of Helltank and Helltank Destroyer, perhaps he might be able to shed a little light on the planned series.

Thanks for asking! I don't recall any serious discussion of this between me and Metagaming (i.e., Howard Thompson commissioning a third game, which I would've been happy to produce) and Metagaming ceased operations pretty suddenly. Would have been easy enough to do: more map, more units, maybe a more elaborate electronic warfare module.

Who owns the rights for the Helltank series? Would it be possible to republish it?

Wow, how'd I miss this. I'd love to hear your thoughts on what you'd have included in a 3rd game in the series, as well as what you'd include if you were to produce the game today. Say, Helltank Returns?
