Infogrames Confirms Hogs of War 2, Airborne Raiders Return, NWN2 Expansion 2 News

By Chris Leyton on 13/02/2008 New titles confirmed in the French publisher's latest set of financial reports...

Revealed in the company's latest set of financials, Infogrames today confirmed a raft of new titles for the forthcoming year.

Coming first is a sequel to the popular PSone and PC title Hogs of War. Styled in a similar manner to Team 17's Worms, Hogs of War 2 is currently in development for the Nintendo DS, Wii, PS2 and PC.

Following up on this announcement is the appearance of an old Microprose game (remember them?). Acquired by Infogrames as part of the Hasbro deal back in 2001, Airborne Raiders is an update to the 1987 title that appeared on 8-bit home computers of the time. Currently in development for the Xbox 360, PlayStation3, and PC, the original Airborne Raiders can rightly lay claim to being the first tactical shooter around.

Finally the release notes that a second Neverwinter Nights 2 expansion pack is in the pipeline, alongside an Xbox 360 version of Asterix at the Olympic Games.

Hogs Of War is a legend of a game. Sequel should have been a LOT earlier. In fact, we should have a whole back catalogue of them. Really glad they've finally pulled out this old classic and began developing a sequel.
