Release Date - Status Update

Long story short, our ship date is slipping a bit. We know this happens often in the gaming world but still angers fans and everyone anticipating a new release. For that, we are sincerely sorry. This being our first release, we wanted to make sure we release a quality game free of as many bugs as possible. That said, we have some pretty big features we are trying to tidy up and eradicate some pesky last minute bugs. Again, we apologize and we sincerely appreciate your understanding and continued support. We still anticipate a February release.

About This Game

It's Cyber Warfare... Turn-Based Strategy Style

Which side will you choose? The hackers (red team) or the cyber defenders (blue team)? Battle head to head in turn-based cyber warfare, where the fate of a company's computers, network, information, and even critical industrial control systems hang in the balance.


But ThreatGEN: Red vs. Blue is not just a game...

Learn Real-World Cybersecurity!

Developed by actual experienced, professional (ethical) "hackers" and penetration testers, ThreatGEN: Red vs. Blue is also designed to teach you real-world cybersecurity! Learn how hackers think, operate, and attack systems by playing the part of the red team (no prior skills necessary)! Play the part of the blue team and learn about real cybersecurity controls, technology, methods, and strategies!

Game Play

ThreatGEN: Red vs. Blue is a turn-based strategy game played much like popular global domination board games. Rather than a world map, the "game board" consists of a computer network, which players compete for control over. Instead of simulated computer terminals, players choose and commit actions using "action cards" similar to a trading card game.

By the Community... For the Community

Every single member of the development team for this game actually comes from the cybersecurity (or INFOSEC) community. Most of us work, or have worked, for years as cybersecurity professionals, and we all remain active members of the community. ThreatGEN: Red vs. Blue was developed and tested as a result of the feedback from more than 300 beta testers in the cybersecurity community. Our goal is to continue to make regular updates based on continued feedback, making this truly a game by the community, for the community.
