Well here is something out of the ordinary. Gameloft, who usually doesn't mention a whole lot about upcoming games unless they are close to release, has decided to announce all the games they have lined up for all platforms for the second half of 2011. We sifted through the list to find out what would be new for Android. Check update.
Update July 29, 2011 10:01am: Well apparently even though the press release states all phones, this entire list concerned only Java & Brew devices. So you can scratch all of this, at least for now, off as anything coming to Android. This was confirmed by Gameloft on their Twitter Account. Note about future press releases, BE MORE DETAILED. Either way, we apologize for getting everyone, including ourselves, excited. Here is Gameloft's statement via Android Police:
I can confirm there has been a confusion. The lineup we have announced yesterday is only for feature phones (java and brew). We do not announce in advance our line up of games for Android and iOS. Usually we announce our games for iPhone and Android separately (one announcement for each game). Sorry for the confusion
So what can you NOT expect from Gameloft between July and December? Some pretty interesting games actually. Here are the ones that are currently not available for Android yet along with the little snippet of info that comes about each game. Some games in the list are in regarding to other platforms and are already released onto Android such as Asphalt 6.
Sports and Racing Games:
So there you have it. That is, apparently, the entire line-up of games that is on the list for the second half of 2011 that will be making it to Android. The only one we excluded was Asphalt 6 since it is already out for Android. The action/adventure games, for the most part, look to be the most interesting ones although Civilization V, if done right, will be awesome. It will be interesting to see what they do with the user interface with that one.
This also doesn't include games already slated for release shortly such as 9mm which we already know about. So out of these games, which ones interest you the most? Let us know! As always, full press release below for your viewing pleasure. It's not really any different from what you've already read here though.
