If you didn't catch the news a week or so ago, Oxide Games was formed and is working on a new game engine called Nitrous.

 

http://www.gamesindu...dev-oxide-games

 

"Oxide Games, which is based in Maryland, was founded by Stardock CEO Brad Wardell and four AAA veterans who most recently worked on various aspects of Civilization V: Brian Wade, Tim Kipp, Marc Meyer and Dan Baker.

 

The studio will develop "cutting-edge games," but the catalyst will be Nitrous, a 3D engine custom-built for strategy games. The 64-bit multi-core engine has been designed for PC first and foremost, but with Xbox One and PlayStation 4 firmly in mind."

 

 

A new interview is also up which talks more about the Nitrous engine.

A strategy game, from what they've said. It's a 64-bit multi-core engine. And it isn't just limited to Oxide Games.

Says Playstation 4 and Xbox One were kept firmly in mind right there in the post... :)
