Kalypso Media announces they have acquired worldwide rights to Tropico 3 from Take-Two Interactive, and they will release the third installment in this PC strategy series in summer 2009. Tropico 3 will be based on the original Tropico, and development is being handled by Bulgarian developer Haemimont Games (Rising Kingdoms, Imperium Romanum, Grand Ages: Rome). They hope to appeal to newcomers as well as fans of the series, promising "state-of-the-art graphics, complex gameplay similar to the other titles in the series and a comprehensive multiplayer mode." According to Kalypso Media's Simon Hellwig: "The Tropico series is a great IP which we are excited to continue. The game will be the biggest project Kalypso has realized so far in its short history and we are focussing on achieving a worldwide PC hit with this brand. The acquisition of Tropico along with other key licenses is fundamental to our future growth."
