Ubisoft recently announced that Anno 1800 is the fastest-selling game in the entire franchise with over 2.5 million players.
Anno 1800 is a strategy game that gives the player the opportunity to demonstrate their leadership qualities: build giant cities, create efficient and profitable logistics networks, colonize a new exotic continent, send expeditions to four corners of the globe and dominate opponents diplomatically, commercially or militarily.
Developed by the same studio as the original PC version of the game, Ubisoft Mainz, Anno 1800 Console Edition will offer players the full Anno experience with a completely redesigned user interface and controls based on next generation consoles.
“Anno 1800 is the success story of the studio and the 25-year Anno brand. The popularity and success of the game on PC gave us the opportunity to develop a console version of the game using the capabilities of next generation consoles. The release of our most successful Anno game on consoles is a real chance for us to let new players discover our award-winning game for the first time and join our amazing community.” said Stefan Jankowski, executive producer.
