More MoM2 Rumours
Will there ever be a sequel to the legendary Master of Magic game? There's been so many rumours about planned sequels to it during the years, and here's another one! HomeLAN has posted an interview with Stardock's head man Brad Wardell. It's mainly about the game Galactic Civilizations 2, but at the end of the interview we can read:

HomeLAN - Finally, Firing Squad quoted you as saying you were talking with Atari to release a sequel to the SimTex-Microprose fantasy strategy game Master of Magic. What can you tell us about these talks at this time?

Brad Wardell - We're still in negotiation on the various fine points. Stardock WILL be doing a fantasy strategy game title after Galactic Civilizations II's release. We're in pre-production. So the question isn't IF such a game is going to be made but rather what the title will be. Outstanding fantasy strategy games such as Age of Wonders and Heroes of Might and Magic demonstrate that there is interest in these types of games. Our vision is to create a game where you're really building up a fantasy civilization that is full of magic and sorcery. Throw in a 3D engine so you can morph the ground when you start doing powerful spells and I think you'll find that a lot of people will want this kind of thing.
