Most probarly, yes. They have said they're working on something, but not what. Someone also said it was Age of Discovery...

Yes we are working on a new game, but what that game is remains a mystery to this day.

So you are working on a game, but you dont know what it is yet? Kinda like when I used to paint.

We know exactly what we are working on, however we use a different style of development. Most studios use what is called waterfall development. That is basically where the project is made in more of a linear style. We use a completely different style where we basically get a game up and running as soon as possible and continue working on it until it is finished.

There are a few good books out about different development styles. If you go to amazon and look up project management you should find a few.

The Age of Discovery rumor was started in the ESO Future Projects forums. We have not released any information about our next title.

We are working hard on a new game though. Cool things await you all.

lol neato!

Can I offer a suggestion? Stick to your AoM engine but with some good improvements to it. The way you did with AoK and AoE.

You see, all those new engines like the one for Empires: Dawn of the Modern World don't take into account that a person actually likes to play with large armies and less lag. You've seen Medieval: Total War- horrible graphics but a best-selling game anyways.

Thing is, don't go too high on graphics. I'm very pleased with requiring only a 16 MB video card (minimum) for my strategy game then putting it on highest graphics to get all the fun. AoM graphics are excellent. They don't look too 3D and cartoonish like that bomb EMW.

I wouldn't mind 32 MB requirment as long as the FPS rate isn't ridiculous though..and as long as you keep to your realistic-type models and no cartoonish, too 3D ones...

I recommend keeping the hardcore players happy: If you do that, lesser players will also like it.

Personally, I'm really fond of AoK (C).

Even if I knew I can not tell you because they would lock me in the closet as an example to the others.

A world without nature is a world without life
topace3k-Cuirassiers are like.. some sort of ogre riding an elephant. They wear titanium armor, and have a force field as well. And now, they throw grenades...
Ever wonder if parrots think we are mimicking them?

Sometimes you need to scare the lambs,
tell tales of evil bad wolves.
Because if there is nothing to fear,
they might think for themselves.

Is amking a topic to prove there is support, or lack of, for an expansion considered spam?

This is the thread where I celebrate by eating cheese-on-crumpet (it tastes good, really).

So, until the mysteries of ES's new game are revealed to us I doubt there won't be a lot of speculating going on around here.
