Frost Giant Studios, a team formed by former Blizzard veterans, will be unveiling a new real-time strategy title on June 9.
The real-time strategy genre hasn’t had the best time over the last decade, but it definitely seems to be on the recovery path. Age of Empires 4 launched last year, and several other games are also coming out in the near future for genre fans to look forward to. One of these is going to be announced a couple of days from now.
Frost Giant Studios was established by several Blizzard Entertainment veterans last year, and the new studio’s debut title – which, of course, is a real-time strategy game – will be announced at the Summer Game Fest Showcase on June 9. This was confirmed by the developer recently over on Twitter.
So far, the only thing we know about this game, other than the fact that it’s an RTS, is that it’s being built on Unreal Engine 5. That said, given the fact that this is a game coming from people who’ve worked on titles such as StarCraft 2, Command and Conquer, and Warcraft, it goes without saying that strategy fans will want to keep an eye on this one.
The Summer Game Fest Showcase is going to be between 90-120 minutes long, and will feature reveals and announcements from a number of developers and publishers. Other games that have been confirmed to be at the event are The Callisto Protocol, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, Gotham Knights, and Cuphead: The Delicious Last Course.
