In the what-if scenario of the day, Gas Powered Games founder Chris Taylor has stated his desire to work on real-time strategy property Total Annihilation again. "I would love to yes, but the problem is you can’t just make a sequel to a game that’s 17 or 16 years old," he told VG247.

"You have to update and evolve it to fit into the current situation in the market. But it's a really complex question to answer because, do people want something that’s been evolved, or do they want to just go back in time and imagine that it's 1998, and we're beginning work on Total Annihilation 2? Do they want that game? What do they want in terms of mechanics, do they want a boxed product experience? But yes, it would be wonderful to do something with it."

Clearly, he's given this some thought; I'm sure many TA fans have as well. Taylor explained that he's still interested in Kings and Castles, an unfinished project described as "Total Annihilation with Supreme Commander in the Medieval era," which would also hit the spot. Given the studio's recent acquisition and everything leading up to that moment, such endeavors will have to remain a pleasant thought for now. There is, as others have pointed out, still Planetary Annihilation.
