But last summer Koei Tecmo teased a project which had potential to be a better Attack On Titan game which eventually had a successful February launch in Japan. And finally the game has been announced for its release in North American on 30th August for the PlayStation family of consoles, Xbox One and Steam.
The game will get a new title excusively for Europe,A.O.T.: Wings of Freedom, while it will remain Attack on Titan in North America.
