After the huge success of SteamWorld Dig and SteamWorld Heist, developer Image & Form has fans all over the world. To close out 2016, they gave those same fans something to look forward in 2017. During the most-recent episode of their web series, “The Engine Room,” CEO Brjann Sigurgeirsson and Community Manager Julius Guldbog revealed that SteamWorld 3 (officially known as SteamWorld Project 2017) will be released in 2017.
The third SteamWorld will make its public debut this March at PAX East, as Image & Form also announced they’ll travel to the Boston-based convention for the first time with a playable demo of their next game.
Back in October, Image & Form announced that they’re working on a game for the Nintendo Switch. As of right now, we don’t know if SteamWorld 3 and their Switch project are the same game… though it seems likely. I guess we’ll have to wait until March to find out for sure.
