Supreme Commander 2 announced, Square Enix involved

Square Enix have announced they will be teaming with Gas Powered Games for the development of Supreme Commander 2, a sequel to the award-winning, well received, real-time strategy game released early last year. No one knows what exactly their involvement will entail as of yet, so go ahead and speculate wildly.

We see great opportunities in European and North American markets, both of which are expected to be maintaining sustainable growth over these coming years,” said Yoichi Wada, president and representative director of Square Enix. “Therefore, it is crucial we create alliances with proven developers such as Gas Powered Games in order to serve these significant markets better by providing products and services in tune with customer tastes.

Gas Powered Games is an accomplished development house that has demonstrated its ability to successfully create and develop intellectual properties,” said John Yamamoto, president and chief executive officer of Square Enix and Square Enix. “We are extremely excited to begin working with Gas Powered Games’ talented personnel and see this strategic partnership as a significant step in our efforts to bring Square Enix titles to a broader global audience.

Gas Powered Games CEO Chris Taylor comments: “It is truly a great honour to join forces with as renowned a developer and publisher as Square Enix. Everyone at Gas Powered Games is thrilled about this collaboration, and the results will surely delight video game fans around the world.
