Good news for lovers of real time strategy games! This next game will betake its influence from Warcraft III, Broodwar, and StarCraft II, to make the new game a lot more evolved.
What is RTS ?
An RTS or Real Time Strategy is a genre of a game which centers around the player to play as a god and control all the units to build and use resources for the motive to defend their side and defeat enemies. In one other way, you only control one character to use resources and build to defend and defeat enemies.
Games like World of Warcraft, Starcraft, Age of empire etc,were the games that really made this genre very popular.

Though, with genres like FPS and RPGs dominating the market, RTS has become a struggling genre at this time. With blizzard studios stopping development on StarCraft II, things seemed to get even more concerning for the genre, but as this genre is still loved by people.
Frost Giant Studios, who’s a company made by ex staff of Blizzard Studios – who had worked on game StarCraft II, Warcraft III, and Diablo IV, revealed that they are working on a new RTS game. Being experienced team, we can expect a great title to come out hopefully.

We can clearly expect a game with new ideas yet influenced from these great titles which sounds promising as these are some really experienced RTS game developers. “Our influences will include Warcraft III, Broodwar, and StarCraft II. We expect to be as different as those games are to each other,” said co-founder of Frost Giant Studios Tim Morten.
