We don't have any plans right now as the team have a lot of other stuff to do but we are not ruling it out at some future point.

There is a reason that dev's prefer iOS over Android. The Android market is scattered in regard to devices, OS versions and shops. Also, iOS users are willing to pay more for apps.

From games released on both platforms sales are about 10 to 1 iOS to Android so install base doesn't really give the full picture.

If they are looking at doing this game as a Tablet only then no times really haven't changed. Android Tablets are still lagging market share for sales pretty significantly, the Nexus and Galaxy lines have put a bit of a dent in it but for Tablets the iPad still dominates.

Where android is really taking over is in the cell phone market but as it seems more of Matrix's games are geared for tablet play specifically and in that case then the iPad makes more sense.

FWIW the Kindle Fire line has actually seen a pretty healthy software attachment rate for apps being purchased, last I looked they were selling more software per user than the Android market and catching up with iOS in terms of sales per user though not yet there. Android is also catching up in sales but again if they are looking at tablets iOS still dominates the tablet sphere.

We see the sales on a daily basis and market share is very deceiving. For whatever reason iPad users are far more likely to spend on games which makes it viable and the Android version far less so. Android versions are also harder to developer because of the massive variety of hardware and screens. So less sales and longer development times means less games.

We do have some Android games coming but generally only when there is a Unity version where Android is very cheap to do.

We constantly monitor this though and it could well change in the near future but right now there are just better opportunities out there and so the time goes on other games or other platforms.

Actually I own Panzercorp for the PC, and then just run Splashtop on that machine and the client on my Samsung 10.1 Tab 2. Works great, and no need to buy another copy of the game. There you go, Panzercorp on Android!

I used to do the same thing on my iPad ! But panzer corps for iPad runs sooo smooth compared to splashtop 2. Also the debate on android tablets... There is only a very small percentage of them with the power to run good quality games. I would imagine the vast majority of those owners paid less than $49.99 for the tablet they own. In other words you get what you pay for.

Rogo I wouldn't go that far. The nexus line sells for $199 and hardware wise is as powerful as anything but the newest line of iPad.I'm also not aware of any well selling $50 tablets, the vast majority of androids tablet market is made of high quality devices Nexus, Asus, and Samsung all largely on par with the iPads.

80% of tablets web traffic comes from iPads, 18.7% from Android devices and 1.3% from MS Surface. I don't see Apple running out of business.

That's not what I said but you're selling Android tablets short of what they are capable too. For what it's worth I own an iPad and an Android tablet, I like them both for different reasons but hardware and raw horsepower tends to be mid range or higher Android tablets strength. iPads tend to be better optimized but lower spec'd and less powerful, the Air lineup has changed things a bit but Android OEMs likely will respond with something comparable. Up until the Air line the iPad tended to lag in raw horsepower, doesnt mean it's worse it really depends what you're doing, this isn't fanboying but you're wrong if you say Android is mostly under powered cause that's not true unless you're getting ultra low end tablets but the Asus made Nexus 7 had a quad core CPU and more ram than the iPad 4 or iPad Mini for $100-$300 less.

If there is a market on Android we'll focus more on Android but right now there isn't so we have to wait.

You can't compare 50$ tabletoids with 400$+ Ipads...If you compare them to same-priced tablets (Samsung Galaxy or so), the Android hardware is at least 30% more powerful - as is a Windows PC vs a Mac of same price.
Now I'm pretty sure that the tablet market will go the same way smartphone market did (with 80% android to <15% Apple), Apple has to create new stuff but can't compete on a mature market (maybe because they have so high a margin !).
Personally I'm 100% Windows+Android ;)

Yes there are some android tablets that are powerful. However the market is flooded with cheap no brand names that are being sold at a very low cost. I had an android phone and towards the end I had to reboot it every single day. I've had apple products now going on four years. I've never ever had a single problem with anyone of my products. I don't think its apple vs android like most android users claim but it's simply the market and demand for high end games. Besides window tablets will be the beginning of the end for android tablets.

Yes, there is a huge market on Android for these games. I cannot stand Apple as a company and would love to see Panzer Corps released for Android. I have an iPad 4 and play Panzer Corps on it, but the screen is too small- plus I despise anything Apple. I would love to ditch the iPad and play it on my beautiful 13.5 inch Android tablet.

Developers, are you listening, or will you continue to ignore us?

I still play PC on my iPad Pro, But I don’t expect Matrix will sell any more games for the IOS.
