Ace Combat: Assault Horizon
Project Aces Teasing New Ace Combat Game?

It looks like Project Aces and Namco Bandai could be teasing a new Ace Combat game, if a message on the developer's site under the banner of 'new title' and a fresh trademark application for 'Ace Combat: Infinity' [uncovered on NeoGAF by Gematsu] is any kind of an indication.

Namco Bandai applied for the Ace Combat: Infinity trademark yesterday, at the same time the message emerged on Project Ace's site. The message reads: "That day our sky fell, the heavens split to create new skies." Yep, that sounds like some Ace Combat-style babble alright.

It seems that the probability of this being a new Ace Combat game is pretty strong, especially since the last instalment in the series was 2011's Ace Combat: Assault Horizon. Two years on is high time for a new Ace Combat, don't ya think?

[Thanks, Kibz]

Talk is it could be assault horizon 2, look at the word "Fall" on the developers site, they look more like the roman numeral for II not a couple of L's
I know assault horizon wasn't everyones cup of tea but I definitely enjoyed it.

I'd you know your Ace Combat lore, you should know all about ulysses 1994xf04. The tag line suggests a return to Strangereal.

BTW, the most recent game was actually 3D Cross Rumble, aka Assault Horizon Legacy. A remake of Ace Combat 2 for the Nintendo 3DS.

Awesome news, please let it not be next gen only. Assault Horizon's had some flaws but at least they tried some new stuff for a flight game. I hope they bring back some of the more sci-fi elements of Ace Combat 6, destroying huge flying aircraft carriers never gets old to me.

Just a heads up guys, this is nothing really new. Project Aces have been teasing it for about a month now. They updated their Facebook page with some concept art of what appears to be the Ulysses astroid. And sorry AH fans, it looks like we're going back to Strangereal. I couldn't be any happier, AH was a let down. I don't want CoD in the skies, I want Ace Combat.

Ace Combat looks (and plays) really good on 360. Excited about how it'll look on Xbox One. Amazing, probably.

I loved Ace Combat 6, though Zero was my favorite, followed by X. I liked the choices they allowed that changed the path of the story.

Yes! Ace Combat series are one of my all time favourites (see gamer tag! ) :D

I hope it is available on Xbox One, but I'll play it on whatever they release it for:)
