Crimson Skies Wiki
Map of the splintered United States.
"The year is 1937. The collapse of the old United States has made highways and railroads useless. Airlanes are all that connect the fractured nation-states of North America. Giant zeppelins cross the skies. protected from the rising tide of aerial piracy by squadrons of fearless fighter aces!"
—Publisher's Description[src]

The Crimson Skies media takes place in an alternate history created by Jordan Weisman and Dave McCoy.


Crimson Skies began as a pitch for a game called Corsairs! for the Virtual World location-based entertainment centers. Eventually this was redeveloped into a board game simulating aerial combat that was introduced by FASA in 1998. In 2000, Zipper Interactive developed the property into a computer game, published by Microsoft. In 2003, it returned as Crimson Skies: High Road to Revenge for the Xbox, as well as a collectible miniature games from WizKids.
