'83 Announced

Antimatter Games (Rising Storm) announces '83, a tactical first-person shooter set in an alternate history 1983 where the Cold War heats up into a full conflict between NATO forces and the Warsaw Pact. "Everyone at Antimatter Games is extremely excited about the project," explains Rich Barham, Executive Producer. "‘83 gives us the opportunity to push the boundaries of what we have done before, all in a new and under-explored period of world history, while expanding on the things which have made our previous games so popular." Grab your parachute pants and your shoulder pads and check out this trailer which combines news footage and cinematics to introduce the project. The description of the clip mentions high (80+) player counts, and the announcement discusses their take on persistent warfare:

‘83 is an online first-person shooter in the genre of the company’s previous title Rising Storm 2: Vietnam. Set in an alternate history, the game will focus on the accessible realism and historical authenticity for which our previous games are known; from vehicles to troops, locations to weapons, everything is real world and period appropriate. ‘83 will have large maps; all set in realistic locations across which players will do battle as either the forces of the Warsaw Pact or NATO in a global conflict.

To reflect the nature of this global conflict, ‘83 will showcase a feature described as ‘Persistent Warfare.’ Everything from kills to captures will be tracked and recorded, feeding results back into the larger status of the war, and resulting in a tangible and visible impact on subsequent matches, no matter which server a player is on. Sturt Jeffery, Lead Designer on the project describes persistent warfare as: “A way to give all players a meaningful opportunity to contribute to the war effort, and one which drives the ongoing development of content in line with the player-driven narrative of the war. We’re also planning some interesting ways for prominent players to achieve recognition above and beyond the usual in-game items, achievements and titles previously experienced in similar games.”

That's what I thought this was.

Second time in 6 months, after Fallout '76.

Still, I appreciate that they're setting a game in a time period that's NOT World War 2.

The land in Minecraft is flat, Minecraft simulates the Earth, ergo the Earth is flat.
