Operation Flashpoint 2 confirmed for PC - first details to be revealed at E3.


Codemasters today confirms that Operation Flashpoint 2, a true sequel to the million-selling military simulator, has been commissioned.

The setting and theme for the game will be revealed at E3, the global games expo (Los Angeles Convention Centre, May 14-16).

Operation Flashpoint 2 is in design and development at Bohemia Interactive Studio, the Prague-based creators of the original title, and will launch late in 2004 for PC.

Focussing on another theatre of modern-historical warfare, Operation Flashpoint 2 will continue the title's reputation as the ultimate military gaming experience.

Marek Spanel, Operation Flashpoint's Project Leader at Bohemia Interactive Studio says: "We have great plans and massive ambition for Operation Flashpoint 2 but, for the moment, we are not revealing specific details of its content and gameplay. Following the success of the original game, it's great to be working with Codemasters on the sequel and we are confident it'll become another major landmark in PC gaming."

Codemasters will trail Operation Flashpoint 2 at its E3 booth (#746, South Hall). Until then, gamers can register their interest in the project and sign-up for development updates online at: www.codemasters.com/flashpoint2
