Publisher Nordic Games has acquired the IP for tactical space-RTS series Nexus from HD Publishing. Only one game has been released under that name, 2004's well-received Nexus: The Jupiter Incident.

“We think that Nexus was one of those heavily overlooked, hidden gems in the niche of Space-RTS,” says Reinhard Pollice, business and product development director at Nordic Games in a press release sent to us today. “We hope to start working on a sequel in the near future.”

The crazy minds behind Nexus: The Jupiter Incident are at it again with the idea for a full sequel effort called 'Nexus 2: The Gods Awaken'. They want to bring back true tactical space battles.

Not only that but they want to dazzle us with "state-of-the-art visuals" whilst doing it, just like in the original. It will be powered by the Unreal Engine, allowing modular ships.
