Triumph Update: To 3 or not to 3?

Woot! Our long lost friend Lennart Sas, producer and chief designer for Triumph Systems, popped up today in the forums with an announcement, of sorts, concerning the goings on there. Tantalizingly mysterious as alway of course, at was a mixture of good news and not-as-good news.

Among other things, he had this to say:
We are hard at work on our new game, which is not TBS and is not AoW related. This game is really something new. I think it will appeal to AoW gamers who are not TBS fundamentalists and also take a liking to other, more action oriented games. (--Nope, its not an RTS!). You'll find it has plenty of AoW-like atmosphere, some AoW references even conceptually there is some overlap. So far the game has been great fun to make, and it’s a *riot* to play.
Not sure exactly what that might entail, but it will certainly bear watching. The very fact that they've resurfaced to say as much bodes well though for the immediate future. Hopefully we'll be seeing some more pre-release news coming along.

As to an actual AoW3 though, it's less promising. While they value their fan base and are not conceptually opposed to extending the series, Lennart cites mainly economic problems with the genre currently as stumbling blocks. <sigh> Well, even game developers have to eat.

You can read the whole thing, and add your comments, in the "Triumph Update" thread in the main forums.
