Shadowrun Chronicles: Boston Lockdown has left early access and officially launched for PC. The recently renamed role-playing game from Cliffhanger Productions is available online and in stores.

Cliffhanger has sent word that they have renamed Shadowrun Online to Shadowrun Chronicles: Boston Lockdown. The name was chosen with the assistance of the game’s current community as well as its Kickstarter campaign backers. The change was stated to be in large part to clear up any potential confusion for future players, especially those picking the game up in stores, about its single-player content. The shift away from “Online” is said to move away from the idea that they game is an MMO instead of a single-player game that also supports four-player co-op. Cliffhanger’s managing director Jan Wagner offers additional details in a letter to the community, posted below. To go along with the name change, the studio also announced that they have a release date for the final version: April 28.
