As you're probably aware, we currently do not have a publisher for our upcoming games and also, the Operation Flashpoint trade mark name is an intellectual property of Codemasters and thus we cannot use the name or directly control what the name will be used for. It means that unless Codemasters were to publish any of our upcoming games (which is still a possible scenario) it definitely wouldn't be named Operation Flashpoint. But whatever names we will use our dedication to complex, realistic simulation and large open ended game environments will remain the same.
We have almost finished the special new version of our military combat game for Xbox. Considering the system's limited memory we're really proud that we haven't removed a single feature, nor did we limit any aspect of the original PC military game and we fully kept the spirit of the original whilst managing to improve the graphics as well improving and adding to many aspects of realism, environment and ambient life. It's different to anything console gamers have ever seen and that's another reason for us to finally have this game published. We're confident no other game on console offers this level of realism, scope or freedom. Playing a realistic military simulation in your living room, sitting on a comfortable chair, watching a large TV screen and listening to high performance surround sound speakers is definitely a unique feeling, even if you've already played the game a lot on PC.
Armed Assault (working title, aka ArmA) will be our next title for PC with an expected release date prior to the end of 2005. It will bring you a new engine with numerous improvements, including a completely new Direct X 9 graphics engine with support for detailed vegetation and dynamic water, reworked physical simulation and collision detection.
