Sega Unveils an Impressive List of Upcoming Titles
Today, Sega unveiled a slew of new titles. Not only is there an XBox Live title, but there’s a follow-up to Condemned, and an original RPG to be developed in collaboration with Gas Powered Games.
In what most PC fans will term good news, the collaboration with GPG will be a role-playing game for the PC, based on an original IP. Chris Taylor of Gas Powered Games said, “New IP is king.” With the success GPG has enjoyed in recent years, it’s safe to say this one will be closely watched.
Also announced were Condemned 2: Bloodshot, which will be in the hands of Monolith, a Wii version of the arcade shooter Ghost Squad, and a Happy Friends TV / Internet cartoon series-based XBox Live and PC collaboration.
In a surprising announcement, Sega said that the strategy title Universe at War: Earth Assault, announced previously for PC, will also be coming to the XBox 360. Pertoglyph is developing this one, and it is planned to incorporate MMO-inspired multiplayer.
All of these announcements are good, but I have to admit to a small drool factor at the thought of a new Gas Powered Games RPG. There really is no bad Chris Taylor. None at all.
