When the Amplitude Studios team first announced the upcoming historic strategy title HUMANKIND, they called the game their magnum opus, and the team meant every word of it. The response to the game has been outstanding so far: The community not only longs for the game, but was also deeply involved in the development at every phase.
Chief Creative Officer and Studio Manager Romain de Waubert de Genlis addressed a few words to the community and commented on the reasons for the delay: “It was exciting to see the community lend a hand to the game during the last OpenDev sessions and then to hear all of the positive (and constructive!) Feedback.
Players have always been at the heart of Amplitude’s philosophy. With the release of HUMANKIND in August, we now have additional time to continue working with the community and to optimize the game for the release. “
The team will focus on improving the areas of the game identified by the community during our previous Lucy OpenDev, when players learned about 4 eras and 40 cultures in the game over 150 moves and then shared their ideas and suggestions for improvement. Accessibility, game pace, game balance, diplomacy, AI are just some of the areas the team will focus on in the coming weeks.
