Anno 1800 screenshot of a highly busy and very smoky harbor

After the fairly disappointing and seemingly unpopular Anno 2205 I figured the series would be taking an extended break, but that appears to not be the case as Anno 1800 has just recently been announced. Whether its going to fix the flaws that plagued its predecessor still remains to be seen, but on the positive side it'll at least be bringing the series into a highly interesting time period - the Industrial Revolution!

If you're wondering what all of this might look like, and what sort of tone and style Ubisoft is going for, you'll find what you seek in the latest teaser trailer. It unfortunately doesn't feature any actual gameplay, but it sure is pretty to look at! Have a gander:

Similarly, I would love to tell you more about the gameplay, especially since I love the Anno series myself, but I'm afraid that Ubisoft is currently being extremely secretive with the details. The only thing I can tell you for certain is that Anno 1800 will be coming in winter of 2018, though whether that means January/February or December, I have no idea.

To learn just a little bit more, and I really have to emphasize the "little" here, you should head over to the official website. And finally, here's a couple of colorful images to tide you over until some proper gameplay details get revealed:
