Amplitude is coming back again with a fantastic game after blockbusters like Endless Legend and Endless Space. They are making a historical game that can compete well with Rival Civilization 6. This new game is Humankind, which will be bigger and better than other games like it. Sega is also backing this new game, which is making it a big-budget strategy game.
