Stronghold Crusader 2 announced for late 2013 release

Firefly Studios is working on yet another game in its long running Stronghold franchise of RTS games. Today, the developer announced that its next game in the series will be Stronghold Crusader 2, which is due for release in late 2013.

The original Stronghold Crusader was released way back in 2001 and was actually the second game in the series, after the original Stronghold. The original Stronghold Crusader was set in the Middle East during the Crusades time period and Firefly says that will be the case for the sequel as well.

In the developer's announcement today, it said:

Our aim is to build on the trademark gameplay of the original Stronghold Crusader with new visuals, a sleek new battle interface and engine enhancements including effects, animations and real-time physics. Stronghold Crusader 2 promises you fast-paced skirmishes against fiendish AI opponents, as well as new maps, new unit classes, new traps and castle designs unlike any seen before in the series.

The developer adds that Stronghold Crusader is Firefly's own favorite game in the series and they have been waiting for years to start development. Firefly will self publish Stronghold Crusader 2 and has already started posting concept artwork on its Facebook page.
