The original Stronghold was a blast of a game almost 10 years ago when it was released. Since then, the series had an increasingly number of fans who I’m sure will enjoy to hear that SouthPeak is planning to revive the series and deliver Stronghold 3 to PC users worldwide.
Unfortunately for those wishing a host of details regarding the Stronghold 3 features, there are none. However, SouthPeak’s CEO Melanie Mroz said:
“Publishing the newest sequel to the popular Stronghold franchise provides additional visibility to our brand and robust portfolio of games. With a strong built-in user base, we believe the enhancements incorporated into this sequel will drive further growth for the franchise, enhance our revenue stream through traditional retail sales, as well as significantly strengthen our digital offering where there remains tremendous growth opportunity.”
First published in 2001, the Stronghold series is one of the most respected in its genre, with the franchise selling more than five million copies globally. Stronghold 3 promises to build on these firm foundations with a significantly improved graphics engine and new gameplay elements. Firefly Studios’ Stronghold 3 is due for release on PC in 2011.
