Ubisoft Announce New RTS – Tom Clancy’s EndWar

After launching a few viral websites and after even more rumors Ubisoft have finally announced the new Tom Clancy game they’ve been hinting at for the last while – an RTS set on the battlefields of World War III. Going by the name Tom Clancy’s EndWar Ubisoft boast that the game will push the envelope of technology, showcasing artificial intelligence, graphics, physics and animations that were not possible prior to the launch of the new hardware systems. They may even live up to that claim as development is led by strategy veteran and Ubisoft creative director Michael de Plater and being developed at Ubisoft’s Shanghai studio whose members have experience developing many releases in a selection of Ubisoft’s hit franchises including Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon, Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six and Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell.

Our development teams are invigorated to be creating the first 100 percent next-generation Tom Clancy brand,” said Serge Hascoët, chief creative officer at Ubisoft. “Our success with Tom Clancy franchises is unparalleled in the next-generation and Tom Clancy’s EndWar will be a marvelous addition to the already critically acclaimed library of games. A strategy game like no other, EndWar will allow gamers to lead their own armies against hundreds of others online in real global locations on the massive battlefields of World War III.

Tom Clancy’s EndWar is scheduled for release on next-generation consoles in fiscal year 2007/2008.
