Top 10 Strategy Games We're Looking Forward to in 2019

Anno 1800

The Anno series, at its heart, has always been about historical seafaring during the Age of Exploration and, in a couple of its titles, the Age of Colonization. The two tend to get blurred anyway (thanks largely to Sid Meier, who set most of the genre conventions with Sid Meier's Colonization way back in 1994), so this might just be a case of Anno needing to find a new century prefix.

This time, however, developer Blue Byte seems to be leaning into the Industrial Revolution timeline that the game's title implies, and the combination of exploration and city building looks to have just a little hint of steampunk in it to differentiate the game from the more "early New World" feel of games like Anno 1503.

Anno 1800 is scheduled for a PC release on February 26, 2019.
