New Toy Soldiers for PS4 and Xbox One in development

New, 6 comments

Signal Studios is working on a new Toy Soldiers, the action strategy game that pits miniature toy soldiers against one another, for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, Becky Taylor, community manager at the studio told Polygon today.

The announcement comes just weeks after the studio reacquired the rights to their property from Microsoft.

The original Toy Soldiers hit the Xbox 360's Xbox Live Arcade in 2010. In the game, players controlled armies of World War I toy soldiers battling in a diorama set up in a child's bedroom. The studio released a sequel to the game, Toy Soldiers: Cold War, in 2011.

Signal Studios acquired the license to the property at the end of last month, Taylor said. After acquiring the rights, the studio announced Toy Soldiers Complete for Steam on Windows PC. The pack includes both games and four pieces of DLC. Currently the game is available in early access for $10.

Taylor said the team, with help from Australia's Krome Studios, is working to finish fully porting the game over to PC.

They're also, she said, "currently working on a new Toy Soldiers game." The studio expects to fully announce details for the new title later this year.

While Taylor declined to detail the upcoming game, she did say that the studio will be partnering with a "rather large publisher."

Signal decided to partner with the studio in hopes of "expanding the content that's in the game.

"We're super excited," she said. "It's our baby."
