Chris Taylor Hints a Return to Total Annihilation

PC Gamer has extracted some quotes from Chris Taylor on the CnC-Inside.de podcast where he answers questions about the RTS properties originated by Gas Powered Games now that the studio is owned by Wargaming. He explains that the Supreme Commander series is the property of Square Enix before throwing out strong hints that they may be pursuing a new installment in the Total Annihilation series. Here's word:

“In so far as other RTS properties that I am capable of working on – and I think you know what I’m talking about, I don’t even need to be coy – I think that nerd is alive and well.” Remember, the nerd in question is a metaphor for Taylor’s love of deep, complex strategy systems. Add that to the phrases “RTS properties”, “I am capable of working on” and “I think you know what I’m talking about”, and I think we know what he’s talking about.

(A hint: he’s talking about a follow up to Total Annihilation.)

Of course, this isn’t an announcement by any means. In fact, when pressed for confirmation later in the interview, he returned to maximum coyness. “I can’t, I won’t, I shouldn’t. It’s just not an area I’m ready to talk about yet. But you can use your imagination, even though you’re not on the project. You’re welcome to use your imagination, your imagination will serve you well in this case.”

He is 2 years too late for the party. Planetary Annihilation is where it's at now. Shooting stuff on planets? How quaint... we now shoot asteroids at planets.

I still can't believe how badly Square Enix fucked up Sup Com 2

Heh. Still, PA coming out this year. TA 2 won't come out until 2015 at the earliest. By then we'll be hankering for something new.

True enough, but how much "new" can he do that isn't done by PA? Just figure that by 2015 we'll have much cooler toys to play with than PA or TA 2

Personally, I am hoping the Oculus Rift is going to be what I hope it to be. Because a good full immersive VR device that is not just gimicky because of technical failings could revolutionize gaming immersion on a level that is simply beyond our imagination right now. But when you experienced that immersion, can you go back to playing normal games? Or will it be boring? ^^
