In the view of focusing our efforts to develop and expand the
Close Combat franchise we are rolling out a few changes to Close Combat: Cross
of Iron. We are looking at the future, with one more release soon to be
announced under the current engine and the big brand new Close Combat
multi-platform engine currently in development.
In order to keep focus on the future of Close Combat, we have made the decision
to stop the multiplayer campaign support for Cross of Iron.
This decision was made after carefully evaluating traffic and matches being
played and finding that the multiplayer campaign was generally dormant. You will

removes these elements.
Rest assured normal support for Cross of Iron and all other Close Combat games
will continue and we are working full time to make the best Close Combat series
