Ubisoft has announced development of a new iteration in the critically acclaimed Tom Clancy series, due out on PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 in 2008.
Developed by the company’s studio in Bucharest, Romania, the untitled project will take the form of an aerial combat title, offering beginner players “hi-tech piloting assistance", allowing users to home their skills until they become a more capable pilot. The assistance training can then be dropped as the player sees fit.
"We are confident that this new brand will become the new benchmark for flight combat games and will be, like other Tom Clancy-based games, an instant online multiplayer hit," commented Sebastian Delen, Managing Director of Ubisoft’s Bucharest studio.
"The player will experience all the action and excitement of modern air combat, from intense dog fighting to tactical strikes."
Details surrounding the games plot are scare, though the basic outline appears to involve players defending US airspace following an attack by an unnamed private military force some time in the near future.
Stay tuned for more information on the game as soon as it breaks.
