Bandai Namco Entertainment has announced that Ace Combat 7: Skies Unknown has sold over 3 million copies worldwide across the PlayStation 4, PC and Xbox One. Bandai Namco Entertainment has also confirmed that they are working on a new Ace Combat game with ILCA (Pokemon Brilliant Diamond/Pokemon Shining Pearl), Project Aces will collaborate on the project. No other details were revealed.

Here’s what Kazutoki Kono, producer of the Ace Combat series, had to say:

We’ve started work on a new project in the Ace Combat series. Project Aces staff will of course continue to be involved in the development of this new project, but as we celebrate 25 years and three million copies sold, we’ve come to understand we have many fans of all tastes. Our small team can’t handle it all alone, so we’re looking to expand the Ace Combat team in a big way.

That’s why we want to form a business alliance with ILCA, who will become more deeply involved in the Ace Combat series than ever before, and create a new Ace Combat. We hope this opportunity will allow us to add even more staff to the Project Aces team.

More than anything, I hope fans are happy to know that the next game is underway. With this new staff, we’re creating a new Ace Combat—a new era. I don’t know where we’ll be in the next 25 years, but the Ace Combat series will continue, and to everyone who supports us and creates with me—I will continue to give it my all.
