Z-Man Games Takes a Look Inside Pandemic: Hot Zone

Now seems as good a time as any to talk about the Pandemic series of games. A new form of it, Hot Zone, is coming soon. In this preview, Z-Man Games looks at the game's development, where it's at, and the future release of the game. The article's by game designer Matt Leacock, himself. So, if you want it straight from the designer, that's what you get.

From the post:

I hope you and your loved ones are staying safe and healthy during this turbulent time. Back in March, we shared a message explaining that we would give more details about upcoming Pandemic titles at a later date. Thanks to the tireless efforts of the many essential workers keeping our healthcare systems and supply chains intact, and thanks to the social distancing practices of everyday people around the globe, there is evidence that our collective actions to combat the virus are working. While the situation varies from community to community, we’re hopeful that restrictions will ease at the proper time and we can safely bridge that social distance again.

I know many of you are eager to hear more about the final game in the Pandemic Legacy trilogy, which we’ll get to soon. But today we’re here to discuss a different Pandemic game, one that Matt, my team, and I are all very proud to share with you. One that, just like the original, requires you to work as a team, share your knowledge, and discover cures together.
