In a surprise announcement, Eugen Systems has revealed their new IP — Steel Division: Normandy 44. Eugen has previously developed the Wargame series as well as Act of Aggression.

It’s exciting to see Eugen and Paradox working together for this historical RTS. The announcement page describes Steel Division as a large scale RTS with over 400 historical units on launch. It may be too early to say, but so far this new title seems to be taking a lot from Wargame. Players will be able to control divisions from 6 different nations. Germany, Canada, and the United States have been mentioned so far. British units have also been teased in the screenshots.

Steel Division: Normandy 44 is slated for a 2017 release. Stay tuned to Gamer Professionals for more information on the game as it becomes available. You can also watch the announcement trailer here.
