To this day, I'm still surprised that Activision decided to transform the Battlezone IP from its roots as a straight shooter into an FPS-RTS hybrid. What's even more surprising is how well it worked. Besides Sacrifice (from MDK and Earthworm Jim developers Shiny), it's perhaps the best mashup of those two games from that era of gaming.

We've known for some time that a remaster of the Battlezone remake was on the cards. We've known that it was due out some time this year, but as of this morning we know that it's much sooner than anyone was expecting.
