MekTek Studios is a grass roots video game development studio based out of Saint John, New Brunswick. Originally formed as a mod group in 2000, MekTek Studios incorporated in 2009 to take advantage of this rapidly growing market space.
As a mod group, MekTek produced several community expansions to Microsoft’s MechWarrior franchise and supported an active community of over 40,000 active forum members. Upon incorporating, MekTek Studios partnered with Microsoft to release an official free version of MechWarrior 4: Mercenaries which included all of MekTek’s expansions to the title to date. The free release received over two million downloads in a 72 hour period.
MekTek Studios is one of the industry’s leading experts with Epic’s evolutionary video game engine technology, Unreal Engine 4 (UE4). Granted access to UE4 over a year before the engine’s public release, MekTek Studios has utilized this bleeding-edge technology in their development of Heavy Gear Assault.
