Ubisoft has announced that it plans to share more news about The Settlers' reboot at some point in January 2022.
Originally unveiled in 2019, The Settlers ended up missing its initial release date and being delayed until the latter part of 2020. In July 2020, the publisher pushed back the game again, this time without providing a new release window.
The second delay came as a result of fan feedback during playtests, and was followed by a period of silence surrounding the title.
While we do know The Settlers will re-emerge next year, Ubisoft didn't hint at the nature of the news we can expect in January 2022.
That being said, the Twitter post does encourage fans to register via the game's website for "a chance to play."
With a bit of luck, this might mean that new playtests will take place soon and, hopefully, a release date won't be too far behind.
"Get ready to set sail towards the unknown, explore, conquer, and settle new islands in a brand new medieval fantasy world," the game's Ubisoft Store description still reads while mentioning both a single player and a "new online multiplayer mode offering thrilling skirmishes for long-lasting fun."
We'll learn more as we head into the new year. In other city builder news, Anno 1800 is also getting new content next year, as its Season 4 Pass was announced earlier this month.
