The father of modern wargaming is back! Today, publishers Slitherine and developers Flash Back Games have announced that Panzer Corps 2 the long-awaited sequel to the critically-acclaimed Panzer Corps is now in development. The release date of the game is currently set for sometime in 2018.
When talking about the development of the game the developers said "After over five years of expansions, mods, challenges and tournaments, a brand-new instalment of the franchise is ready to take the strategy gaming segment by storm again. This time, with even bigger ambitions.Panzer Corps 2 is currently in development using Unreal Engine 4, to allow an impressive leap forward in both technological capabilities and visual impact. Hundreds of World War 2 units will be shown with a level of quality and detail never seen before in a wargame."
"The move to a fully 3D engine is a natural evolution of the game, but the core gameplay will always remain true to its roots: pay tribute to the classic gameplay of a distant golden age of strategy gaming, refine it, perfect it and use the most recent technologies to enhance these experiences and bring them to a new generation of gamers. In other words, strike the perfect balance between tradition and innovation, both in visuals and gameplay."
Flashback games are also looking for plenty of early feedback and ideas from players as to what they want a new modern Panzer Corps game to look and feel like. A sequel to Panzer Corps should be a great thing and we'll continue to follow the development of the game and look forward to see how this turns out.
