    Any chanace you could format the dates of Twitch Streams, patches or DLC launches to show our local time rather than UTC? Thanks 🙂

      Our hope was that it’s easier to do the math from UTC, but we can include a number of local times in future blogs, if that’s helpful.

    When do we get some news about a new ANNO? I know it takes a lot of time to make a brand new game, but I hope that the ANNO Union community can bring in some opinion. Like with ANNO 1800 where we could bring in suggestions and feedback.
    I don’t ask for much, I really want to know the theme of the new ANNO. Like, will it be again in the age of discovery or in the Black Ages. Or will it be with a Roman theme or back to the future? Or will it be a remastered version of an older ANNO game? Just a picture from the beach of the new game would be nice or some concept art. Just some stuff that can start the rumors, if people just talk about it can even help the sales.

    Can we get flagship 2.0 DLC? we want full metal flagship with it’s pride

    Please fix the “AIs think harbor blueprints are real” already, it causes AIs to shoot harbor blueprints forever, since blueprints have no health they do not vanish after an AI shoots at them and so they keep shooting at it constantly.
    Its been a bug for more than a year already, was reported well before Ubisoft decided to stop “developing/fixing” the game, and despite this it never got fixed.
