You’ve heard the rumblings of a mysterious Tom Clancy Firehawk game before, but the official title is now revealed. Ubisoft today announced that it’s creating Tom Clancy’s EndWar, a new brand in the Tom Clancy game series. Led by strategy veteran and Ubisoft creative director Michael de Plater, Tom Clancy’s EndWar is being developed by Ubisoft’s Shanghai studio, whose members have experience developing Ubisoft the hits Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon, Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six and Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell.
Tom Clancy’s EndWar is scheduled for release on next-generation consoles (just Xbox 360 & PS3, or Wii also?) in fiscal year 2007/2008. That means they are aiming for a release between April 2007 and March 2009, or in between those dates in March 2008.
Set on the battlefields of World War III, Tom Clancy’s EndWar 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. Tom Clancy’s EndWar has been built from the ground up as a revolutionary war strategy game (RTS) solely for next-generation consoles.
“Our development teams are invigorated to be creating the first 100 percent next-generation Tom Clancy brand,” said Serge Hascot, 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.”
