Master of Orion 3 Development Update
9:20 AM | Tuncer Deniz | Comment on this story

Having been in development for over two years now, Master of Orion 3 is finally nearing completition and should be released sometime this winter. Adrenaline Vault recently spoke to Infogrames senior producer, Constantine Hantzopoulos, to get a status update on the game. According to the producer, the game is fast approaching the alpha stage:

When asked how much of MOO3 was done, Hantzopoulos said the game is approaching the alpha stage of development, which he defines as "feature complete" and when a project is "playable from start to finish." Although it's surprising that MOO3 hasn't reached alpha after 27 months of work, the senior producer says Infogrames and Quicksilver are still aiming for a Quarter 4 2002 release for the PC version. "Fans will be playing MOO3 during the holidays," he said.

This will give the publisher and creator about two months to balance and play test the product before it hits stores. Look up the word "crunch" in Webster's dictionary, and you might see a picture of the MOO3 team, which Hantzopoulos said is busy locking up the game's final features. The last items to be completed: The laws for the Orion Senate. These will allow players to bend or break MOO3's rules for a certain amount of time. After that comes extensive and highly scrutinous play balancing.

For more info, be sure and check out the rest of the story at the Adrenaline Vault. Master of Orion 3 will be published for the Mac by MacSoft.
