Anno 117: Pax Romana Announced

Ubisoft reveals Anno 117: Pax Romana as the awkward title of the next installment in the Anno series of historical strategy games. This is coming to PC and consoles in Anno 2025, and while there aren't many details at the moment, a livestream is planned for June 18th on Twitch. There's a Governors Wanted Video Teaser, but this is a live-action affair, so it will chew the scenery while providing no calories in return. The Pax Romana Website has what there is to see for now. Here's a bit from the announcement:
As governor, will you encourage economic growth or expand your rule through dominance? Lead with rebellion or unite a diverse culture? The cost of peace is yours to decide.

Are you ready to build, trade and expand?

As any Anno game, Anno 117: Pax Romana features a unique mix of traditional city building, a deep economical simulation and 4X features like diplomacy, military and a solid narrative layer. You'll create vast metropolises, manage intricate logistics, and explore the world while interacting with other characters and competitors!
