Square Enix today announced Order of War, a brand new World War II action strategy game developed by Wargaming.net, which will be released for the PC in Europe on 18th September 2009.
Part of its push for Europe.
They actually announced this ages ago but I can't see it doing well. RTS is already small enough as it is and if you put Square Enix next to anything that isn't Final Fantasy, Dragon Quest or Kingdom Hearts it's not going to do that well.
RTS is a big genre on the PC. What are you talking about? This isn't being DEVELOPED by Square either, they're just a publisher.
Well despite being big on PCs it's still a quite small genre and it's not like there's a lack of RTSs. Also most people don't pay attention to who the developer is, they'll see Square Enix and assume it's a Metrosexual, emo game(which they're not but ya know).
Since when is RTS a small genre? It's one of the major genres out there. Ever heard of Blizzard? Their RTS games still get millions of players a day.
