2019 is almost over and we decided that this is a great opportunity to summarize what happened this year before we say “goodbye and till 2020”.
We kicked off the year with our series about the different buildings in The Settlers, which continued throughout the year and will continue in 2020, where we get to buildings many of you have been asking for – the heavy industry, weapon production and military recruitment.
At gamescom 2019 we showed live gameplay to everyone visiting us in the Ubisoft Lounge, provided you with details regarding the different editions of “The Settlers” available for pre-order and released a shiny new trailer. We also announced the delay to 2020 in order to deliver the best possible “The Settlers” experience for all players on release. More details to come in 2020.
In November we had the kind of news a lot of you have already been waiting for: the very first playtest for The Settlers. Planned as a diary study, this playtest has a rather small scale – which made picking the small group of players even more difficult since we received hundreds of applications! We will keep you updated on our findings after the playtest and will of course announce more playtests in 2020.
Now the holidays are drawing closer, which for many of us in the team means a break from work to meet friends and family – and to simply relax for a while after a busy year.
We’ll be back for you with an outlook on what to expect in 2020 in January.
Until then the “The Settlers” team wishes all of you happy holidays and a great start into the New Year. Thank you all for your support and your comments over the last months, we’re excited to share more with you next year.
