History of Battlehouse Games [2012-2023] 🎖
Battlehouse.com crafted epic, unforgettable experiences on a leading-edge HTML5 game engine built for the open web, delivering tens of millions of play hours for hundreds of thousands of players.
Beginning with Sci-Fi MMORTS game Mars Frontier in 2012, the game engine spawned various successful sequels and additional titles over the years. In 2013, Battlehouse launched its flagship modern-war strategy game Thunder Run: War of Clans, followed by the high-fantasy title Summoner’s Gate in 2014. Along with two sequels to Mars Frontier (War Star Empire and Battlefront Mars) and two spin-offs of Thunder Run (Days of Valor and Firestrike), Battlehouse has built highly engaged game communities over the course of more than 10 years that have remained loyal through thick and thin.
It was with heavy hearts that after many incredible years of LiveOps and Community, we announced that Battlehouse games would be taking their final ride off into the sunset in April 2023. Read the official announcement here, or keep reading to learn more about all the memories that will last a lifetime.
