Earlier today, Eugen Systems announced the spiritual successor to the Wargame (European Escalation, Airland Battle, Red Dragon) franchise, WARNO - Warning Order. Taking the mainland Europe setting of Wargame European Escalation, the timeframe and expanded arsenal of Wargame Airland Battle, and the Army General campaigns and quality-of-life improvements of Steel Division 2, who knows if this chimera of a game will be glorious or a dud?
Early access is due January 20, 2022, and full release is ballparked at 6-8 months from then. USA and USSR are planned to be available at first, with East & West Germany, France and the UK being added before release. Timeframe is set at 1989 with reasonable assurances they won’t powercreep anything beyond that like they did with Red Dragon. No naval combat. Hopefully this will bring back the relative glory days of the franchise before it became bloated to all hell, and will benefit from everything they’ve learned in the interim.
