OpFP2 Renamed Armed Assault

Operation Flashpoint 2 VTV page now offers a teaser saying "Armed Assault Coming Soon," revealing a name change for the shooter sequel formerly known as Operation Flashpoint 2. The teaser then redirects to armedassault.com, a domain owned by Bohemia Interactive Studios. The site no longer bears the Codemasters logo, so the name change may indicate a change in publishers as well. Thanks Tiscali Games.

Maybe I'm overreacting, but this has the "console" smell about it. A change from a sequel to a generic "mass-market friendly" name reminds me of Thief: Deadly Shadows, DX: Invisible War or Rainbow Six: Lockdown.

The name itself is meaningless, but what worries me is that this also signals a change towards more "mass-market" friendly and "accesible" gameplay. It was the realism and the challenge of OFP which made it unique - I sincerely hope they're not going down the same path as the Ghost Recon series.
