Release Date Announced

release_date_no_text clientWe are proud to announce that Stronghold Crusader 2 will be released worldwide on September 2nd 2014. Read on to find out more about our decision to release the game at this time, progress on development thus far and where you’ll be able to pick up the game on 2/9/14.

“We are thrilled to finally give Stronghold players a release date for the game. Fans of the Crusader series have high hopes for Crusader 2 and although many want to get their hands on a copy as soon as possible, it was never our intent to rush the development process. Since the beginning of the project we have maintained that Crusader 2 will pop its head above the parapet only when we are happy that it is truly ready for battle. Well now we think it is almost there, we are about to go into final testing and have recently been confident enough to demo our baby at public events such as EGX London, Rezzed and PAX East. We will have a sequel worthy of the Crusader name come September 2nd.”
