The House of Sonic is now very much the House of Strategy. Sega, which already owns Total War studio Creative Assembly and Company of Heroes studio Relic has acquired Amplitude, the French studio behind the phenomenal Civ-rival Endless Legend and other terrific strategy games. Details here.
Harmonix’s Amplitude revival finally has a release date: January 5. Backers at the $40 or higher tier will gain access a little earlier, however, on December 23.
