Crossfire is a popular competitive FPS in Asia, particularly in China and South Korea, but has only started to make inroads into Western markets relatively recently: Remedy is developing the singleplayer campaign for CrossfireX, although that unfortunately still hasn't been confirmed for PC.
One new addition to the series that is definitely coming our way, however, is Crossfire: Legion, a brand-new RTS being developed by Homeworld 3 studio Blackbird Interactive.
A strategy take on the shooter series is something of a surprise, but it's a good fit for Blackbird, which was founded by former members of Homeworld studio Relic Entertainment. The studio's first release was the outstanding 2015 RTS Homeworld: Deserts of Kharak, and more recently it created the very promising outer-space scrap metal sim Hardspace: Shipbreaker (opens in new tab).
"Crossfire, being introduced in various platforms and genres, is growing into a world-class IP, and it is now reimagined as RTS," said Ina Jang, CEO of original Crossfire developer and publisher Smilegate Entertainment. "Crossfire: Legion is not only for the gamers who have previously enjoyed the original Crossfire, but also appeals to any gamer that wants to experience a classic RTS experiences reinvented in a modern time."
Crossfire: Legion will be published by Koch Media's new Prime Matter (opens in new tab) label, and is expected to be out sometime in 2022. There's not much to see just yet, but you can take a look at a couple of screens below.
