SupCom2 to feature turn-based fighting system.

In other words, Kotaku says Gas Powered Games announced that Square Enix will be publishing Supreme Commander 2.
Not sure how to react to this. On one hand, I am glad that Square is moving away from just being an RPG developer. It's good that they understand that Final Fantasy alone can't support them any more. Extending their influence will probably be good for them in the long run. Then again, I'm terrified that the sequel to one of my favorite games is going to be published by Square Enix. Will I have to deal with a turn-based battle system? Will SupCom2 be exactly the same as the original and the same as the next ten Supreme Commanders? Is every character going to have incredibly spiky hair, even the robots? I just have to hope that Gas Powered Games can keep Supreme Commander from being watered down Square Enix.

That is uh... interesting. The console version of this game sucked balls, if I remember, but the PC one was hailed as a great RTS. Being a Square production, that will be very interesting. I don't trust them as a company; they don't seem to have any idea where they are going at the moment. Hopefully this is a sign of them broadening their horizons. I don't care about the game either way, so it will be a really cool thing to watch grow given that I don't care if its a success or a failure.

Oh shit, if they fuck this up I'm going to be pissed. I love SupCom.
