Settler release date and closed beta date

After multiple delays, Ubisoft’s rebooted city-building RTS The Settlers finally has a release date. Settlers will release on March 17, and if you can’t wait that long, you have a chance to take part in a closed beta for several days next week.

After seven settler games (and several spin-offs) between 1994 and 2010, the RTS series had a pretty rough decade. The eighth game in the series was canceled in 2014 after a disappointing closed beta, and Ubisoft finally announced a reboot with a planned release date of 2019. Then it was delayed until 2020, and then again. Finally, it looks like the settlers will see the light again.
