German publisher KOSMOS has not announced its full line of titles due out in early 2018, but they have released info on one game that shows the Catan game franchise is alive and well.

July 2018 will see the release of Catan: Der Aufstieg der Inka (The Rise of the Inca), a new standalone game from Klaus Teuber and his son (and increasingly frequent design partner) Benjamin Teuber that is for 3-4 players with a playing time of 90 minutes.

This initial description from KOSMOS doesn't give much to go on, but BGG will be at the Spielwarenmesse trade fair in February 2018, and we'll record a more detailed overview of the game then. For now, we offer this summary:

Quote:
Settle, act, build — the basic Catan elements are all there in Catan: Der Aufstieg der Inka, but this game includes an innovative displacement mechanism that opens up new possibilities for players and confronts them with new game situations that will require tactical adjustments. Nature can reclaim settlements already built, allowing another player the chance to build their own settlement on a coveted site. Fish, cocoa, and feathers enrich the barter trade.

Detailed figures and colorful illustrations are used in the game to spread the atmosphere of South American culture as you relive the rise and fall of one of the continent's most impressive cultures.
