New console RTS from Total War developers

stormriseCreatve Assembly, the masterminds behind the ever popular Total War series, are coming out with a brand new strategy game exclusively for consoles. As with most console RTS projects, the game promises a simple control scheme that will "revolutionize" the genre. Multiple vertical layers of combat — air, surface, underground — are said to set the game apart from other RTS efforts.

"Stormrise has been built from the ground up specifically for high def consoles to provide a more intense, frenetic style of game that, coupled with the all new control mechanic, will revolutionise the way RTS games are played," claimed Sega Europe marketing director Gary Knight.  

Are console-exclusive RTS games a smart move, or is leaving the birthplace of the strategy genre a formula for failure? It seems more and more that developers are pushing to create that great strategy game experience on consoles without sacrificing the fact that you play with a controller instead of a mouse and keyboard.

Stormrise will be published by Sega and expected to be released early 2009. As with most newly announced games, hopefully we will learn more about this one at next week’s E3 event.
