The galaxy after Twilight of the Arnor

Ultimate_LogoThe Milky Way Galaxy of the 23rd century is a brutal place.

The malevolent Drengin Empire and their allies, the Yor reign supreme.  Earth and its allies have been defeated and in most cases, occupied by Drengin shock troops.  Earth itself remains free, protected behind an energy shield put in place by DL Bradley, commander of the Terran fleet just before they vanished.  Though protected, it is surrounded by an armada of Drengin ships.

The ancient Precursors are gone forever. There will be no help from the benevolent Arnor.

And this, my friends, is where things were left off at the end of the best-selling, critically acclaimed PC Strategy game, Galactic Civilizations II: Ultimate Edition.  But it isn’t the end. That’s all I can say on that for awhile.

GalCiv II was (is) awesome.  The Lego-like ship builder is still one of the best features in a space 4x game ever.

OK, now this is just teasing.

Looking forward to more news, whenever it comes.

Brad I'm glad you still check out the GalCiv II forums. This still is your (Stardock's) best creation yet.

Lets keep it frank...

 

We want more and better! Bigger Galaxies, more Ship parts, (maybe be able to to change them not just on size proportions but something different) and as I think most of all, fully modifiable and better AIs.

 Can't wait though, will be in the modding scene when GalCiv 3 comes around.

Graphics and size help selling. Moddability (AI among others) builds community. Background story creates a universe.

Draginol's soul was eaten away by such decisions and by faceing that value disappears by time. I still hope that he sent Bradley to prevent the Apocalypse (that he previously failed). The Thalans are just assuming things.

Plz keep it turn-based.  Perhaps, more races to choose from thereby more techs.  I am confident Brad and co will do a great job.

Gal civ 2 is the game that made me discover Stardock. It was a well made strategy game well thought out and very well balanced. I love the AI

 

I can't wait and see what happens when the third installment comes around.

 

2015 maybe?

Wow! Excellent news.

Please, add tactical fleet battles for GC3. Maybe you can take the old Star Wars Rebellion as an example.

 Thanks for your work.

Galactic Civilizations is near and dear to my heart.

I haven't been able to return to it as soon as I'd like because Stardock got so big after its release that I got spread between a bunch of projects.

Now that Impulse is sold off, I have more time to spend on the games unit again.

Just adding my voice to chorus cheering for GalCiv3.  

I was actually on my VM with Windows 8 the other day, and considering that the Windows Runtime model is all about immersive experiences... I got a really nice mental image of being able to tap on an object, and see something similar to the context sensitive radial menu in OneNote for the 'right click' options. Anyway, not yet the time in the market to talk about that, but here's hoping for next year...

We all know this game will work only if you listen to the suggestions of your fanbase and incorporate their ideas into the game.

 

By which I mean primarily me and my ideas but don't tell anyone.

This sounds very promising. GALCIV 3, yeah! With even bigger resources than before I presume. This would be an awesome game!
