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.”

Little things marching across a battlefield blowing each other up into little bits is what Chris Taylor does best.

While Supreme Commander has one of the best UI's ever created (quick, name a game where you can create, let alone manage, hundreds of waypoints...on dual screens), Total Annihilation was unmatched in pace and fluid shifting fronts of debris creating mayhem.
