The next installment in the lovely action RPG series Sacred -- Sacred 3 -- was announced way back in 2010, with few details, and no information since. Finally, I've got something for you.
With former developer Ascaron having kicked the bucket, a successor has been named: Keen Games. I'd been hoping Gaming Mind Studios would've taken on the next game, as they house many of the former developers at Ascaron, but it is not to be. Keen seems like good people and all, but their background is very much in casual games, as you can see from their website. Who knows, maybe they've been wanting to make an in-depth RPG for years now and casual games have just been to pay the bills in the meantime. Doubtful, but then again there must be some good reason they're on the project. If nothing else, the logo is serious business.
Sacred 3 will launch sometime next year. Story-wise, it's connected to the just announced Sacred Citadel.
