Battlecruiser Millennium Gold is scheduled for release on March 4, 2003.
The second game to be published by DreamCatcher under the new deal is Battlecruiser Millennium , which is effectively the sequel to Battlecruiser Millennium.

"Derek has a great reputation for producing high quality, innovative games, and his next two will be no exception," said Richard Wah Kan, DreamCatcher president. "His flair and enthusiasm are a great fit with DreamCatcher and really demonstrates our commitment to both our developer partners and our customers."
