Not sure, I heard about this project about 20 years ago (no title, just its producers). So the gaming engine might have been just a rumor or maybe it was used in a deferent title, so it may have been considered new then but not new now. But I do know that a new tactical wargame is being developed called Steel Tigers.
Steel Tigers does or will use the new Matrix/Slitherine Arcane game engine.
Steel Tigers will release after WITE2. As it is based on a new engine and not yet feature complete, it's too early to predict a timeframe but we want to allow enough time to finish it properly and also to support WITE2 properly after its release. We do plan to involve the Steel Panthers community in the alpha test once the basic feature set and testing are complete and their feedback will help us greatly in determining the final shape of the game and additional development and the final release timeline.
Best Regards and Happy Thanksgiving,
