EndWar 2 being developed by smaller team
Selling 1.5 million copies, EndWar turned out to be a bigger success than most people thought. Besides Halo Wars, it was deemed â€œthe biggest new RTS in the last four or five yearsâ€ according to Ubisoft creative director Michael De Plater. Naturally, we can assume that we shall be seeing more of EndWar in the future.
Currently a smaller team from Ubisoft Shanghai is developing the RTS sequel with focus on the single player story and depth. While we have no idea when we might see EndWar 2, be assured that the team knows exactly where they are going with it…
De Plater goes on furter to explain, in an interview with VideoGamer.com, that after EndWar, they have a good view of what needs to be done to make the sequel a success.
â€œItâ€™s a really good position to be in, in a way. After the first one, now we have a really good understanding of what to do, and weâ€™ve solved lots of the hardest problems, which are accessibility, camera, controls, rendering that many characters, having that game work in 3D, our online as well, having persistent campaigns, having persistent player armies, so weâ€™ve kind of done the hard stuff. Thereâ€™s a really clear path forward there.â€
It’s great to see new IPs become a success and we wish the team the best of luck. Hopefully with the smaller team they’ll be able to concentrate on the areas needing the most work and be able to make a bigger and better game. It looks like there is no end in sight for EndWar. Sorry, it had to be said.
