[Update]: While no details have been revealed just yet, the Age of Sigmar real-time strategy game has now been delayed until the latter part of 2023.

After creating Elite: Dangerous, Planet Coaster and Jurassic World Evolution, Frontier seems to now be taking things in a bit of a different direction. Instead of it being some sort of simulator, their next game will be a Warhammer: Age of Sigmar real-time strategy.

Details about the game itself are currently few and far between given that it wasn't even officially announced just yet, merely revealed as a part of an IP license agreement. However, what I can say is that Frontier is planning to have it launch in 2023 for PC, consoles and streaming platforms.

While it's a little bit unusual to see a new RTS game announced, especially when the Warhammer 40k themed Dawn of War 3 ended up with such a lukewarm reception, I am at least cautiously optimistic about this Age of Sigmar game. The universe lends itself perfectly to an RTS game, what with most of the factions already having unique mechanics and highly recognizable units - all of which could easily translate to solid strategy gameplay.

Even though I doubt we'll get more information any time soon, I'd still recommend keeping an eye on this newly announced Age of Sigmar RTS if you're a fan of the genre. Frontier has done great work with their games so far, even if some of them didn't live up to their true potential, so a seemingly passion-based project like this could be a real hit.

Whatever the case may be, I'll make sure to let you know once a full announcement goes live at some point in the future.
