According to the announcement made by Kalypso Media, the company has bought the rights of Commandos. After that, they started to work on a brand new Commandos game.
We have been looking for a suitable partner for the continuation of our products and brands for a long time. Kalypso has great expertise and experience with rebooting well-known titles, and we are delighted to have our IP in such good hands.
Commandos is a stealth-oriented real-time tactics game series. The five games released between 1998 and 2006 are all set during World War II and follow the adventures of a fictional British Commandos unit.
We have great respect for what the Pyro Studios team have accomplished and created throughout the history of the studio. We see it as our responsibility to revive and further develop these beloved games for fans around the world. Of course, this will include the development of a completely new game for all platforms, but also an extensive adaptation of the existing titles for contemporary technologies and platforms. We’re incredibly excited about the opportunities, and will begin speaking to potential development studios in the near future.
This is great news for Commandos fans out there and good to know that the game is in good hands.
