After the developer of many an RTS, including the recent Halo Wars, Ensemble Studios finally met its end, a large portion of the former giant’s employees have risen up from the commercial deathbed and created a new development house – Bonfire Studios.
Bonfire Studios – carrying on the torch.
With the company in very early stages, we can expect to wait a while before anything emerges from their great, flaming gates, but Bonfire have conirmed that they are already working on a game with the “most of the core team from Ensemble Studios’ that created Halo Wars is working on [it]”. Giving very little away about the anture of the game, could it be possible that Bonfire are deciding to take a new direction, away from the RTS genre. With their past firmly rooted in someof the RTS greats of recent gaming history, this would be a bold move, but all we have to go on is that the game”already has a great in-depth story, combat and game play!”. Looks like we’ll have to wait and see.
