The good news is that there will be a Galactic Civilizations III. The bad news is that it won't be out this decade.
GalCiv III? Sounds good . Now to figure out what to do with GalCiv II 2.0 (.2r2b2?) when GalCiv III comes out.
Take your time, get it right .
Right now, the team is working on the "unnamed fantasy strategy game" sometimes called "not-MOM" (not Master of Magic). It's a totally new graphics engine that makes use of multi-core CPUs and GPUs but will still run fine on lower end hardware thanks to built-in detection that will determine "how much stuff" to display in real-time.
Not gonna play the fantasy game (fantasy's just not my genre - personal taste), but the engine sure sounds cool. Mind if I ask which versions of DirectX it'll support?
Our non-game part of the company does so well that there's no pressure.
Yeah, I love that stuff . Keep a few devs working on them, please!!
THAT engine will be what serves as the basis of a future Galactic Civilizations III. That means GalCiv III will have features like tactical battles (as an option), multiplayer, more sophisticated planetary development, and much more.
Sounds great .
