Supercell, the Finland-based game company behind the wildly popular Clash of Clans and Hay Day, will launch its next game in March, the company confirmed to Reuters on Wednesday.

Dubbed Boom Beach, the game, which is already available as a trial, will allow gamers to battle it out on beaches. It's not immediately clear exactly when the game will launch next month, but Supercell CEO Ilkka Paananen told Reuters that more details will be announced soon.

Supercell has seen its business grow at a rapid pace over the last few years. In 2012, the company generated $101 million in revenue, according to Reuters. In 2013, its revenue jumped to $892 million.

Last year, Supercell sold a little over half of its business to Japan's SoftBank for $1.5 billion.
