A message from the “The Settlers” team

Hello dear “The Settlers” fans,

Since the announcement that “The Settlers” are back, we have received an overwhelming amount of comments, feedback and suggestions.

There are so many “The Settlers” fans out there who love the many different aspects of the game. Be it the economic part, the military, the look and feel, the “wuselfaktor” or the inviting world – to name a few. We are incredibly grateful for your feedback, and over the last few months, while performing playtests and diary studies, one thing became clear: while we are on the right path to deliver a great game, we really want to deliver an exceptional gaming experience.

Since quality is our main priority, we want to take the time necessary to make it right. Therefore, we had to make the difficult decision to postpone the release of the game until further notice. The additional time will be used to address your feedback and deliver the best “The Settlers” game possible. While we cannot provide a new release date yet, rest assured we will keep you updated via The Settlers Alliance and our other channels as soon as we can give you further information.

Thanks for your understanding and patience.

Cheers,
Your “The Settlers” Team

This was gamescom 2018 in Cologne

Every year, the gamescom in Cologne comes to an end and of course we have a lot to report.

The Creator of The Settlers Volker Wertich and Ubisoft Blue Byte Managing Director Benedikt Grindel took the stage on August 21 at about 11:30 am. In celebration of the 25 Anniversary, they announced the re-release of The Settlers 1 – 7. For all fans and lovers of the franchise, we have the History Collection – A bundle of all titles in one version. The Settlers 1 History Edition has already been released on Uplay, for all the other titles, you should mark the 15. November in your calendar.

However, that was not all! A new The Settlers was announced and presented to astonished guests for the first time.

Volker Wertich: “It was a very moving moment for me to announce the new great successor live at the gamescom press conference 25 years after the first release of The Settlers. The whole team has been working very hard over the last two years and you can see that everywhere in the loving details, the fantastic graphics and the well thought-out gaming systems.

At 12 pm, the doors opened at the Ubisoft Business Center and people could see a hands-off demo. The demo was presented and explained from different members of the team.

Of course, there was more. At the same time, we launched our website “The Settlers Alliance”. This is our way to share information, explain new features and communicate with you. We want to hear from you: What do you like and what do you really liked in previous parts. Your feedback and suggestions are very important to us. It is easy to say, that we want to give you the opportunity to look behind the curtain and learn more about the development of the game.

Volker Wertich: “The first feedback on our community website and all other platforms are overwhelmingly positive. I would like to sincerely thank all interested, current and future settler players at this point. I can assure you that we will follow your reactions and wishes very carefully and we will continue to do so. Your support gives us an additional boost of positive energy to develop a unique gaming experience.

For everyone who could not get an appointment at the business center, you could meet our team at the Ubisoft Lounge. Community Developer Dominique “Ubi-Barbalatu” Falkenberg talked about the History Edition and presented, as a world premiere, the new The Settlers. Players not only shared their experience from previous titles but also asked question about the new installment. As a special highlight, Volker Wertich even stopped by to get first hand feedback from fans, players and veterans.

The reactions of players and press was marked by positive surprise and great anticipation. We could not be happier about this. Of course, we will not rest on the laurels! The year is short and we have a lot ahead of us. We received countless comments and feedback. These must be read and answered and of course, we want to provide you with new information. New week, we will sit down with Volker to answer some of your most pressing questions.
