Will there ever be an AoW3? Totally depends on the economics, as games are expensive things to make. Right now, the market isn't looking good. Even the top selling game of the genre, HoMM, is now being developed in Eastern Europe where wages are lower and alcohol is cheap. The same has happened to other old-school PC genres; including single player RPGs, flight simulators and city builders. However AoW and its fans are very dear to us. When there is a possibility we'd sure consider to continue with the series. We have the ideas. We have the tech. We own the IP. We have the fans.
For now, we hope you'll have an open mind to our new game.
We should be able to disclose something in the not too distant future!
Take care, and keep whacking those halflings.
