Yes there is going to be a major update to Empire Ascendant! The flagship took a few heavy torpedoes in the aft hull when iOS got updated and broke the entire engine EA was created with. Even small bugs could’t be fixed without a major overhaul of the core code.
Since that dark day a few really good things have happened, namely a brand new Engine which was created for Antivirus and Star Empire which will be installed into EA with a lot less work than a complete rebuild would have required.
EA is a very complex game for a gaming platform where Angry Birds rules the roost, but thanks to a small yet vocal community of EA fans we’re pushing ahead with the update. While we’re in there, hd graphics, sound fx, AI improvements, numerous bug fixes and of course a save game will be implemented. We may even do an HD version for iPad if the iPhone rolls out well.
Should be 3-4 weeks before release. After that, also set in the EA universe will be a Master of Orion-type 4x game modelled after the first MOO, which will definitely be iPhone and iPad as well.
