great to see some news for a new anno, but please can it also be done in english ? this game also has a lot of non-German fans that dont want to use the google translator for each topic.

thanx!

I think earlier r later there will be an english-speaking forum. And as you can see there is no really big interest in Anno by most of the international magazines, but you can find all information we have on these sides too. And I don't think all the german fans will start writing in english now eventhough I can understand your wish.

Hope you are able to understand my English http://www.ubisoft.de/smileys/chatten.gif

but the whole world of gaming is in english, i really dont understand why anno is one of the only games that has not a default english forum, maybe this is part of why people are not interested when they dont speak German ;-)

and really be honest, anno 2011, who doesnt speak english these days ? at the age of 10 most of the kids these days already speak decent english http://forums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

probably it just a wish that wont come trough here, but admins, please support english some more, especially the announcementshttp://forums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_frown.gif

if i just look for myself (ans thus similar players like me) i really like to participate in some of the dev stuff, modding stuff, discussion, and so on. but its just not possible, i aint German, and google translate isnt that good to make everything understandable

I think Ubisoft has different headquarters in different countries, and each country HQ announces things for the local press if I'm not mistaken.

Yes, and that's why I posted the link to the announcement on the English forums, to show that it's announced on all the Ubi boards.

aah i see,

but still wonder about the main point for this thread, why is english so bad supported. is it really that compared to other countries these games like anno only sell good in germany ? and therefore only has german fans on the forums ?

It's something of a self-fulfilling prophecy: They think nobody outside Germany cares about the game, so they only market it in German, making sure nobody outside Germany cares about it.

I only know of Anno 2070's existence because a German friend mentioned it to me. It's a really bizarre move from Ubisoft not to properly market it to an international audience.

As alexastor mentioned, Ubisoft has local marketing people in all the countries, where they have headquaters. The local guys decide how to do the marketing for the game in their jurisdiction.

So the German marketing guys do the marketing for the German market and the UK guys for the UK market and so on.

So the German guys have no influence on how the international guys place their marketing. There are always legal affairs to consider (like which magazine get exclusive rights to publish first etc,) so one grupe can't interfere with the things the other is arranging. So the German marketing can not simple translate everything into English and publish it. Maybe some games magazine in the UK has an exclusiv on a story and they will complain, if all the info they were going to publish has already been published online bei Ubi here.

The game is produced and developed in Germany, and it has a long tradition in Germany, so naturally it is better known here, more anticipated and there is more marketing going on. Its like with every other thing..all the american television series are a lot more advertised in the US and only when they finally come to Germany we got sone info and trailers http://forums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif


Your best chance to get more info is to support the thread in the UK forums, and make your wished known there.

well i can very easy awnser you on that,
1. Statistically WAY more people speak English in the world than German.
2. English is a international accepted languish. German is more or less not.

I cant believe this. Its still one company so they are colleagues. I thought the Ubi work mentality was not the box idea.


but you know what stings the most, its that at this point, the game is still open for suggestions from fans. Proof of this is the sticky's on top on these forums. so, as Elucca indeed mentioned, its like they dont care about the fans outside Germany. there is no Anno part on the English forums, and there is no real English part for 2070. but still they claim to make a game "where players from all over the world" (to quote themselves). So it seems like this game again will have no real international fans after the release.

And even more people speak Chinese. And I for myself do not want to have all the games being in chinese..so this argument has to be put into context.

And as already mentioned, you have to take into account that this is a German game.

Yes, but the German collegues can not know of all the contracts that are made everywhere in the world.

The game will be released in winter, so all the majour decision have already been made. There may be an influence of the fans on balancing,if a beta test is made and maybe some minor features that can still be included etc, but conceptual the game is finished, I guess.

The threads at the top of the forums are only questions for the developers and those things, that people "wish" for Anno2070 to be. This is not like a "what kind of features would you like to see in the next anno". This phase has been shortly after the release of 1404 with the ingame questionaire etc. The thread above is just "wishful thinking"...

Bring it on.

Assumption is the release info is in English and the Trailer is in English so there will be a english version of the game just like 1404. German may be the primary, but that is fine.
