Codemasters have revealed Operation Flashpoint: Red River
as the sequel to Operation Flashpoint: Dragon Rising
. They decided to do so by granting a world exclusive to Official Xbox Magazine (OXM), which was in turn shared with CVG.
The title is slated for a 2011 release window, but beyond that concrete information and details are far and few between. So far and few in fact, there are none. The only information available is that of OXM's impression of what they have seen so far.
Initial reaction to the game showed it to be a:
tighter, more focused game, [than Operation Flashpoint: Dragon Rising], [but is] nevertheless still striving for a more realistic recreation of warfare.
I think we can safely assume that a 2011 release window means that we won't see this title until at least the mid-way point of the year. The reason being Ghost Recon: Future Solider
is scheduled for general release during the beginning of the year.
