It appears that we'll see another addition to the Operation Flashpoint
series in the coming year, with Operation Flashpoint: Red River
being outed recently by OXM UK (via CVG
). Other than revealing the title, OXM UK editor John Hicks also noted that the game is a sequel to last year's Dragon Rising
and feels "tighter, more focused" than the last game. Presumably, Red River
is being developed by Codemasters' Southam studio, as revealed by Codies VP Gavin Cheshire
just last week.
Unfortunately, no other details are known on the title -- other than a wide open "2011" intended release window -- so we'll have to assume the "Red River" name is in reference to a secret war fought on the shores of Lake Winnipeg, near the Red River of the North
. No? Perhaps a shadow insurgency on the Red River Cereal
-- we give up then! If you want to know more about the game for real real
, the upcoming issue of OXM UK will have all the details.
