Seems like a bit of an odd hook-up, but it’s apparently to do with top Japanese publisher Square Enix‘s “goal of increasing western development efforts aimed for the global markets”. They’re going to publish the sequel to Gas Powered Games’ long-zoom RTS, Supreme Commander, on an unspecified date. Yeah, there aren’t really any other details at present, but I’d anticipate there being enormous robots, and even more enormous maps. We had a crack at the original game on our LAN the other week, and I had meant to do a little write up about how surprisingly good the multiplayer actually is for a bit of a mess around with super-weapons. (I found the campaigns to be something of a drag.)
Cheers to Acosta for the heads up.
