Concerned that plans for Operation Flashpoint: Dragon Rising will confuse fans, Bohemia Interactive Studios has issued a statement to make it clear that they are not the developers of this sequel to their first military shooter, and they object to it being marketed as such, saying their ArmA games are the true sequels to Operation Flashpoint: Cold War Crisis. The statement quotes an attorney for Bohemia Interactive saying: "In the license agreement, Bohemia Interactive expressly reserved the exclusive right to develop sequels to the original OFP game," saying: "Codemasters also acknowledged that Bohemia owns all the intellectual property in the game – except the words 'Operation Flashpoint'." The quote included from Bohemia Interactive CEO Marek Spanel indicates they don't feel having rights to the game's name does not give Codemasters the right to claim their upcoming shooter is an OpFlashpoint "sequel," saying: "Since Codemasters has no right to use the Bohemia Interactive game engine or any other component of the Bohemia-developed game, how can it rightfully claim to produce a ‘sequel’?"
