The Banner Sagaback in January, 2014, a visually astonishing blend of animated Norse storytelling and turn-based tactical combat. Now the game's lead director is working on a new title.
Killers and Thieves has the player running a thieves guild, hiring burglars and bandits to do their dirty work, upgrading their base of operations, and planning elaborate heists.

This summer indie publisherwill be bringing the post-apocalyptic roguelike RPG Bedlam to PC, from developer Skyshine Games, who has been working with Stoic's Banner Saga engine.

World of Tanks and The Banner Saga "filtered out" by Paradox Interactive, "not always our money to make"
If you ask whetherwould have liked to have published MMO World of Tanks and surprise hit The Banner Saga, then surely they'd jump at the chance? Not so, reveals VP of acquisition, Shams Jorjani.
