It's apparently out now, but unless I'm blind there isn't a BGG listing. What gives?

what makes you say that?
I know there were a few rumored "preorder" pages, but I don't think any of those turned into an actual "in stock" page.
e.g. http://www.miniaturemarket.com/cat27702.html marks as "new arrival", but it's actually "out of stock" with no photo or details, so I guess it's just an automated thing.
http://www.cardhaus.com/catalog/board_games-preorder_board_g... still shows "preorder" with no further details.

and there is nothing about it on the Fall Street Dates page: http://www.catalystgamelabs.com/2016/11/23/fall-street-dates...

in fact, I don't think I ever found any official mention of Corporate Raid, only rumors building around these mysterious "preorder" pages..

There was a Catalyst post on Facebook from Nov 21 that indicated they were working on a new print run of the base game, as well as a new expansion. But it didn't sound like they were close to finished yet:

"plots for a campaign have been drawn up, rules are being designed, art is being planned--the whole deal!"

A 'campaign' sounds like an intriguing development...

Ah, I see. I was basing it on Miniature Market since they sent me an email saying it was released.

Good to know about the reprint, I asked for the base game for Christmas but it doesn't sound like I'm getting it now.

Well, I just put on hold the only copy Miniature Market had in stock this morning. So once my preorders are released this month (hopefully) I'll release it as well.

There was an update on FB as well.

Its 100% going to happen. But its all in planning phase.

Not sure how long that will take though. Considering the art is recycled art from the SR pnp game and books.

Im excited though.

Still confused on what took them so long to pursue and build an expansion to what maybe their most successful game.

Not to mention the real lack communication and feedback from Catalyst with regard to any info about this game and its expansions.

I think they're a pretty small company, and tbh I've spent hundreds on their PnP game materials (and I'm sure others have too). So I'm not sure what their most successful game actually is.

Miniature Market claims to have the expansion in stock and as a new arrival. I ordered mine today. The number of available copies is dropping fast though.

Assuming a repetition of this post: Re: Corporate Raid Expansion, you're about to receive a 'database is wrong' email shortly.

Yeah, that's what I'm expecting although I tried anyhow since the last time I wasn't one of the people who got the incorrect notification.

They don't have it, they already emailed me about it nearly a week ago when I tried to push it and a couple other held orders through. They claimed there was a miscommunication between them and their distributor, and the game they got was not Corporate Raid. They claim they will have it "soon" however. As to why they still list it as a new arrival is beyond me, I already gave them my two cents on that. Miniature Market has screwed up several of my orders now, so I'm less than happy with them. Oh, by the way, I had to actually ask for my money back, they were just going to hold on to it as a preorder. So none of my orders shipped since I no longer met the minimum for free shipping. Ugh.

I just got an email stating:
"I have unfortunately been informed by our warehouse that we are out of stock of Shadowrun Crossfire: Corporate Raid Expansion. I do apologize for any inconvenience that this inventory error may cause. A refund has been submitted to our accounting department for this order. Please let me know if there is anything further I may assist you with and thank you for choosing Miniature Market!"

I wonder if they'll make any changes or if this is just going to be a bi-weekly occurrence.

Looks like they fixed it, by completely deleting the listing. It isn't even available for preorder anymore.

One of the developers had publicly stated that the game was still in the early development stages only a couple weeks earlier, so I'm not sure what you guys expected ;P

I was another one that snagged a Shadowrun Crossfire: Corporate Raid Expansion on Miniature Market. Was so happy. That has since been cancelled as it was an error. I was told the company cancelled it. Not sure if that was just for now, but it was presented as it wasn't coming out at all. CSI still has it coming out in the next month or so and with pre-orders still up. If it has just started into development, it will be more than a month...or maybe it will be never. The lack of an entry on BGG makes me concerned. There is word it will for sure happen on the Shadowrun Crossfire forum. So I have no idea at this point...just wait and see I guess.

am I the only one who find it a bit ironic that the whole Shadowrun franchise, which deals with corrupted corporates and shady deals, is handled by CatalystLabs like some sort of a top-secret operation?

Ironic isn't the right term, I'd say fitting.

Couldn't agree more. Absolutely abysmal.

Crossfire is such an amazing game that I'm willing to put up with the lack of communication. There's plenty of other games to play, and when new Crossfire content comes out it's like Christmas.

Christmas is not the right term. You know when Christmas is coming. I'm looking for something more random, like winning the lottery
