Ubisoft have announced that Anno 1800 is to receive a new season of DLC in 2021.
The announcement was made over at the Anno-Union and was accompanied by a trailer, teasing the new season pass.
Whilst there isn’t much in the way of details about the new content, Ubisoft has shared the following:
- Season 3 will once again consist of three new DLCs, all of which have been inspired by community feedback and wishes.
- Season 3’s DLCs will thematically represent something of a homecoming after player’s globetrotting adventures in the Arctic and Enbesa, and won’t be adding a new session to the game.
- Each DLC release will once again be accompanied by a Free Game Update that will further improve the game for all players.
The announcement comes as something of a surprise. Anno 1800 Brand Manager, Marcel Hatam, made comments on Reddit four months ago, suggesting that Ubisoft had no current plans to continue development of the successful city builder. Instead, he suggested that development would move onto the company’s next project.
He did however hint that plans could change, presumably based on the success of the then upcoming DLC, Land of Lions:
“Of course, things can change, and if you had asked me last Summer if there were plans for a Season 2, I would have also had to say that there were no such plans at the time, before Season 1 proved to be extremely successful.”
Ubisoft plans to release more specific details about the upcoming season three content in early 2021.
