Operation Flashpoint 2 has now been pushed back to the Autumn, apparently to give the team more time on improving the player experience. This announcement arrived along with a new trailer, and a comment from Codies executive producer Sion Lenton, who had this to say about the game’s island territory: “Skira makes for an immense and, with the latest visual pass, a magnificent battlefield; we’re exceptionally proud of the build so far. Creating this vast island, populated by unscripted AI military forces, is no trivial matter and so, to get this absolutely right, we’re now investing additional development time.” Of course this also means that it’ll no longer be head-to-head with Arma 2, which is still scheduled for release in June. We should have more detailed impressions of Operation Flashpoint pretty soon, so we’ll let you know how it looks.
