Earlier this year, Game Factory Interactive was booted from the development of Strategy First's upcoming PC strategy role-playing game Disciples III. At the time, Strategy First said that the game was already under development at a different studio that would be revealed shortly.
Today, the publisher announced the identity of that studio, as well as the game's apt subtitle of "Renaissance." As for which team will be responsible for the game's rebirth, Strategy First has tapped Russian studio Akella, makers of the Xbox and PlayStation 2 games Sea Dogs and the Pirates of the Caribbean, based on the movie.
The world of Disciples III is divided into several different races that worship their own gods. As lord of one of these races, players will seek to spread the good word and extend their god's domain across the land. In a statement, Akella vice president of development Dmitry Arkhipov promised that the game would build on the foundation of Disciples I and II, with "more interesting gameplay and realistic graphics."
No price or release date for the game has been announced.
