I'm Bernd Lehahn, founder of space simulation game developer Egosoft. Ask me anything!
I’m Bernd Lehahn, founder and managing director of Egosoft, one of the longest existing independent game development studios in Germany. Since the mid 90s, we’ve been working on the X space game series. Our titles included (among others) X: Beyond the Frontier (1999), X2: The Threat (2003), X3: Reunion (2005) and X Rebirth (2013). Our latest game, X4: Foundations, was released in November 2018.
We’re currently working on the next big update and the first expansion for X4, called Split Vendetta. We recently announced that both the 3.0 update and the expansion are being delayed to the first quarter of 2020.
Thanks for your participation and your ongoing support for our games. We hope you've enjoyed this AMA. Follow us on social media to stay up to date on our development of X4: Foundations and be sure to check out /r/X4FOUNDATIONS too.
We suggest adding our upcoming expansion X4: Split Vendetta to your Steam wishlist (https://store.steampowered.com/app/1133000/X4_Split_Vendetta/) and please consider writing a review for X4: Foundations (https://store.steampowered.com/app/392160/X4_Foundations/) if you've already played it.
Thanks a lot and have a great rest of the day!
