SVP of production at Codemasters, Jamie Macdonald has confirmed that new instalments to the Operation Flashpoint, and Race Driver: Grid franchises are in development.
Glad to hear that a new OpFlash is on the way, but man I can't wait for Grid 2 and Dirt 3!
Im glad aswel, i didnt mind Operation FlashPoint 2, the game had its fair share of problems but it had sum good ideas, if they just improve on that itll b a killer game 2 own next year
I thought Operation Flash point 2 was ok, but when compared to Arma 2, it is a joke. Arma 2 is just insane.. http://www.youtube.com/watc... As for Grid? that is awesome news. That racing Studio is amazing.
Great, hopefully CM learn and put some dedicated servers on their games this time and not make such a blatant console port.
so you obviously bought the console version this time i see...?
I don't really see the point of having both GRID 2 and DiRT 3 in development... but hey, I'll probably end-up with both anyway!
Why ? Those are two totally different games. Street racing vs. off-road.
Awesome! GRiD was one of my favorite racing games ever!
Grid still has the best damage modelling of any racer to this day IMO.
Two racing titles in development seems a little odd to me, as they're sure to just compete with one another. Perhaps different launch windows? Either way, I'd more likely stump up the fifty or so quid for GRID 2 than DiRT 3. Also good to see that a new Operation Flashpoint is on the way - hoping that there aren't the post-release problems and glitchiness which plagued Dragon Rising, as that could well put me off the brand if it happens again.
will dirt3 also be named colin mcrae and consist of mostly nitro circus? might as well have been travis pastrana's dirt 2.... rather silly. i want my grid platinum though, the first game is awesome.
Cool Love GRID
Dragon rising was a crapfest and I never really got into GRID, but Dirt 2 is one of my favourite racing games of all time. Best rally game since Rallisport Challenge 2. Can't wait for Dirt 3. I just hope they tone down the dude factor a little.
I'd love a new good GRID.
If you love it, I would suggest Arma 2. It is the true sequel to orginal Operation flashpoint imho.
Operation Flashpoint: Dragon Rising was a game (for PC that is) that was suppose to be so much better then ArmA II. They sold PC gamers out, made it a complete console port, you were able to pirate the game for free AND still be able to play online with people that PAYED for the game... No jets, horrible multiplayer, the lag, no dedicated servers, complete trash. Unless they say they will add/fix many of those things, I'm not being hyped about this at all like I was when it was first announced, I'll look forward to an ArmA 3 anyday (simply put, their just using the OF name, the game should of just been called Dragon Rising).
yeah, anyone who has experienced Arma 2 in its full glory knows what is up, that game is absolutely amazing. Operation Flashpoint 2 is a joke.
To bad ARMA 1 or 2 wasn't released for consoles! People didn't like OF2DR because it was to real ( Like America's Army also ) and not a run and gun style of game. Thats what happens when you have R and G games like Halo3 and CoD/Mw2 as #1 sellers. Fans of those games think ALL fps games should play like that.
thats what i loved about the original. it was uber realistic, but ALSO gave me a motivation to play through the gritty realism.
I will be looking forward to 3 of these titles. OF2 was a great game for co-op on the 360,but the Vs mode left alot to be wanted.
ofp2 was garbage i'm shocked that codemasters is making another title
Flash point - not interested Grid - greatly interested
Grid is a great game. Play it everyday on the PC.
How about they fix Dragon Rising instead of making a new game?! DR is in some serious need of a good fixing.
its unfixable. just move on... @MEGATRON D Grid had great atmosphere when it came to racing as well.
Well if the Pope himself says so, then I guess it is...
... ever since I played the 1st Grid. Wasn't a fan of the whole drifting thing though. Could've left that out completely. But to date, it still has the best replay I've ever seen and it did the arcade/sim physics better than Forza.
they can keep the drifting exclusive to japan for all i care.
GRID 2 Finally! I am so happy!
Cant wait for Grid 2 and yeah the replays were great especially 24hr lemans
i just wish they put in save replay feature this time.they also mentioned a new IP,hope its good. i read this news here 4-5 days ago and nobody else noticed it.
Operation Flashpoint may appear at E3 last month, after the success of Dragon Rising back in October last year i loved grid. i had high hopes for flashpoint. but found more troublesome bugs and issues with the game.and poor online multiplayer. you couldnt propally fly a helicopter like they first said only on certan mission. you cant just go anywere like they said. there were dead zones you couldnt do what you wanted. the bullets sometimes didnt do nothing to enemys. i wanted this game to kick ass more than any other game . i was let down bigtime by codemasters my british dev from days of retro.
