New York, NY â€“ May 5, 2005 â€“ 2K Games, a publishing label of Take-Two Interactive Software, Inc. (NASDAQ: TTWO), today announced Shattered Union, the latest innovative title from Take-Twoâ€™s PopTop Software studio.
Set atop the smoldering ruins of a fictional United States torn apart by civil war, Shattered Union is an action-packed turn-based strategy game for console and PC. Gamers will play through an exciting single player campaign to reunite the country by force or online in one-on-one matches.
â€œWith their work on the Railroad Tycoon and Tropico series, the developers at PopTop showed they could create fun and exciting strategy games,â€ said Christoph Hartmann, Senior Vice President of Publishing for 2K Games. â€œWith Shattered Union, theyâ€™re taking on a darker theme, but will bring the same level of quality to war gaming as they did to running railroad empires and tropical islands.â€
Shattered Union is planned for release in fall 2005. For more information visit www.2kgames.com.
