FASA Studios was responsible for the Xbox titles Mech Assault and Crimson Skies: High Road to Revenge as well as Shadowrun for the Xbox 360/Windows Vista. As previously reported, FASA Studios closed its doors in September.

Jordan Weisman, who has established a new studio known as Smith & Tinker, recently announced on the company's web site that it had licensed the rights for "MechWarrior, Shadowrun, Crimson Skies and the other properties of the FASA catalog."
