Ace Combat Confirmed To Be Returning To The Skies

Back in 2019, we saw the launch of Ace Combat 7: Skies Unknown. Two years on, it’s sold over three million copies. This makes it the biggest selling release in the franchise. So the question was would we see another title, especially with a recent retrospective event.

What did the event reveal?

This was a 25th-anniversary retrospective event for the series which they broadcast on their official YouTube channel.  And that’s where we were given news of the sequel.

Who’s making it?

It is going to be made by Bandai Namco and ILCA.  And fans of the current release may be aware ILCA worked on environments and cinematics for the most recent Ace Combat. They are also working on Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl.  Kazutoki Kono who is the producer of the franchise made that announcement and it was translated by Gematsu.

What did he say?

We’ve started work on a new project in the Ace Combat series. Project Aces staff will of course continue to be involved in the development of this new project. But as we celebrate 25 years and three million copies sold. we’ve come to understand we have many fans of all tastes. Our small team can’t handle it all alone, so we’re looking to expand the Ace Combat team in a big way.

That’s why we want to form a business alliance with ILCA, who will become more deeply involved in the Ace Combat series than ever before, and create a new Ace Combat. We hope this opportunity will allow us to add even more staff to the Project Aces team.

More than anything, I hope fans are happy to know that the next game is underway. With this new staff, we’re creating a new Ace Combat—a new era. I don’t know where we’ll be in the next 25 years, but the Ace Combat series will continue, and to everyone who supports us and creates with me—I will continue to give it my all.

What do we know of the games.

It’s an older franchise, in fact, the first game launched back in 1995.  And around 20 titles including spin-offs later we are now awaiting the next title. But to whether they bypass Xbox One and PlayStation 4, it’s too early to tell. But going off Microsoft Flight Simulator, it’s possible to achieve stunning visuals and not need excessive storage space. Meaning we could see the series debut on the newer consoles and the 7th be the last gens farewell.
