Anno 117: Pax Romana revealed at Ubisoft Forward 2024

In the next Anno game, players will take the role of a governor in the Roman Empire at the apex of its power.


During Ubisoft Forward 2024, we got fresh looks at a lot of Ubisoft’s upcoming games, big and small, and one among them was from the popular Anno city management and RTS franchise. The developer announced Anno 117: Pax Romana, which will take players to the height of the Roman Empire’s power to handle and manage the health and continuation of Roman politics in a small region of the whole.

Anno 117: Pax Romana was revealed during the Ubisoft Forward 2024 presentation this week. Developed entirely by Ubisoft Mainz, which handled development of Anno 1800, Anno 117: Pax Romana takes players to 117AD, when the Roman Empire was the dominant nation in the world. In this game, players will take on the role of a Governor that must maintain the peace and prosperity of their region.

Anno 117: Pax Romana Creative Director Manuel Reinher was thrilled to shared the details of the new game, while promising that it will include lessons learned from previous entries:

Anno 117: Pax Romana is expected to release sometime in 2025 on PS5, Xbox Series X/S, and PC via Steam and Epic Games Store.
