So there's a story floating around the internet that someone is making a "Traditional RTS" pretty much by himself.  It's called "Meridian: New World" and it looks like this:

Now we haven't seen any video of this thing moving yet, so for all we know this might be a pipe-dream or an over-promise, or just not true, but one-man team or not, if we get another Sci-Fi RTS looking this good, I will happily play it.  I want more "Traditional RTS" games over the Company of Heroes/Dawn of War2 style and only Blizzard seems brave enough to make those anymore.

Here's what more information I track down, but I'll share more as I learn.

There is a demo for this on Steam and it is at sale prices at the moment.  If you are itching for a single player RTS, it doesn't seem bad to me.  That said, look at the price tag and don't go in with StarCraft 2 expectations, because it is lacking in pathfinding AI, mission design, UI, and control by comparison.  Still ahead of say 1995, but if you've already got an RTS you enjoy playing and aren't bored with it, you should probably just pass for now.

Asking price of $5 right now is pretty fair.
