Flashpoint™, the game that invented the conflict simulation genre, to return in
reveals plans for a sequel for Bohemia Interactive Studios' military
shooter. The sequel is being developed internally by Codemasters, and is slated
for release in 2008:
Promising warfare on a scale never seen in a FPS,
the biggest name in modern military simulation gaming will return in 2008 as
Codemasters confirms that Operation Flashpoint™2 is in development for PC and
major console formats.
Operation Flashpoint™2 will mark the long-awaited return of the total conflict
simulator, which won international acclaim. Now in development, it is
Codemasters Studios' most extensive R&D project to date. With the studio's
largest development team ever assembled, Operation Flashpoint™2 has already
benefited from over two years of pre-production on a closed set basis and will
use a new FPS variant of Neon technology, the studio's proprietary middleware.
Building on the original game's heritage, Operation Flashpoint™2 will see the
most realistic modelling of conflict scenarios in a new contemporary theatre of
war. By offering a multitude of military disciplines, gameplay will deliver
warfare more realistic and intense then ever before, while an extensive
multiplayer component will create battles on an incredible scale.
Set to redefine the genre it created, Operation Flashpoint™2 is coming in 2008.
