Ubisoft to publish Ice and Fire RTS, WRC 2011 coming in October

By Stephany Nunneley, Friday, 6 May 2011 15:35 GMT

Ubisoft has sent over another update to its release schedule for the year, and it finds the firm publishing Cyanide’s Song of Ice and Fire RTS, as well as providing a release window for World Rally Championship 2011. There’s also a date for Might and Magic Heroes IV in there, as well as Pro Cycling Manager: Tour de France 2011.

Cyanide’s RTS is the first videogame from the developer being released based on George R.R. Martin’s A Song of Ice and Fire series of fantasy novels.

Titled A Game of Thrones: Genesis, the RTS is being published by Ubisoft in the UK according to the firm’s release schedule, and is set to release in September on PC.

Cyanide is also hard at work on a turn-based RPG based on the series, but there is no word yet on what the title for the game is, nor whether Ubisoft will also be the game’s UK publisher.

Meanwhile, since gaining the publishing rights to Black Bean’s titles in the UK, Ubisoft has posted on its updated release schedule that World Rally Championship 2011 will be released in October for 3DS, PC, PS3, and Xbox 360.

Pro Cycling Manager: Tour de France 2011 was also listed on the schedule for June 24 release on PC, PS3, and Xbox 360.

Finally, Might and Magic Heroes IV will be released on September 9.
