For those of us looking for a modern SWAT4/Raven Shield style game, it looks like there might be some hope. A small development team was recently created with the intention of creating a PC based tactical shooter. The founded worked on some of the older Red Storm titles as well as Halo Reach. They are taking donations on Kickstarter... if you put in enough money you can win a Beretta 92FS.

It sounds promising. Lets hope it actually gets made and released.

Edit:

New video up where he details his ideas a bit more:

I'd love a Beretta. If only it would get past customs skyisfalling

I'd also love a modern tactical shooter, I rather liked SWAT 3, I enjoyed SWAT 4 but I felt some thing was missing?

Well I chopped his head off, that usually does the trick.
Yes, don't get clever with me Baldrick. I just thought you might have lopped off a leg or something by mistake.
No, the thing I chopped off had a nose.

I never played SWAT 3, but I enjoyed SWAT 4 Gold. Sadly, even after upgrading my GPU, getting an entirely new PC, then updating the CPU on that PC, through many driver changes, the game periodically crashes on me. I still really enjoy the game though. I played Raven Shield a few years later and liked it very much as well. But there is only so many times you can play the same game over and over. A similar game based on 2012 technology and standards would simply be amazing.

Pretty cool. If anyone can do it, it sounds like it's this guy. I am really skeptical that the crowdsourcing approach can 'work' with the old school tacsim crowd, but let's hope I am proven wrong.

I think they do this crowdsourcing thingy on a racing sim recently..CARS isn't it? It looks like it works. I hope his tac shooter sim will work out, too. A brand new SWAT sim is always welcomed. SWAT 3 and 4 are great, I played both of them, though both seem to have ROE that's too cruel for us and the AI officers, and we missed the green glowing stuff you could throw on the floor of a room once you cleared it, among others. I hope this new sim can iron those out.
I surely can't be an investor, but if praying helps, I'll pray for his success.

Well, I am a backer now. I gave them 50 bucks so that I could vote on game features. I think the first think I will post when I get into their forum is the tactical guide by dyslexic.

Interesting, I think I might have to get behind them. Though for $10K I could buy a whole bunch of Berettas and have them engraved.

Interesting choice to give away a Beretta 92FS rather then a 1911 as well.

I think it is a military shooter so they wanted a current millitary issue handgun. Tthey still issue barettas 92s right?

I had a chance to play GR with him and other members of their GRAW team a few times before he left for Bungie, even afterward IIRC. Very nice crew, knowledgeable and really hard to beat. LOL
These are the guys that gave GR (console) the best host options out there, and 50 maps on GRAW2.
