Last week, we told you that Codemasters had a couple of new titles in development. One of them was another sequel in the Operation Flashpoint series.
We now know that the new sequel will be called Operation Flashpoint: Red River; and it is slated for release during the fall of 2011 for the Xbox 360 for sure, with a PC release likely, but the possibility of a PlayStation 3 release unknown. We consider a PlayStation 3 release very likely, however, given the fact that the game was released on the PlayStation 3 previously.
While we don’t know much about Red River yet, we can tell you that from what we are hearing the game is said to be designed to be much more focused and tighter than the prior Operation Flashpoint release, to deliver a more realistic warfare feel. We will see how this comes together over the next couple of months as development of the title continues to move forward.
