Bracknell/Worms, November 10th 2008

In February 2009, Kalypso Media will publish the highly awaited sequel to Imperium Romanum under a new strategy game umbrella brand, Grand Ages. Imperium Romanum II which is currently under development will therefore be renamed Grand Ages: Rome.

The new brand, GRAND AGES will act as a strong customer recognisable brand for Kalypso Media's strategy games portfolio and will be extended with other high-quality strategy games in the future.

"The GRAND AGES brand gives us the opportunity, to create a distinctive brand for all our strategy games which will be universally recognised and unique in the world wide game markets. Grand Ages: Rome is only the beginning of a future series of great Kalypso Media strategy games", says Kalypso's Stefan Marcinek.
