After having the license for two years and not really getting the chance to use it, Steve Jackson Games (makers of GURPS) have returned the license for Heavy Gear back to the setting’s creator: Dream Pod 9.
So we’ve done the logical thing, and handed the Heavy Gear RPG back to DP9. It’s too bad that we can’t be involved, but the setting deserves the attention that DP9 can give it. Sometimes you just have to let someone else play with those cool toys, and be satisfied with your own.
