Kalypso Media Group has announced the founding of a new video game development studio for the sole purpose of developing the next-generation installment of the Commandos strategy series.
The new studio is based in the “Greater Frankfurt area” and has not been named yet. However, the position of Studio Director has been taken by Jürgen Reußwig, “former Studio manager at Sunflowers and Managing Director of Games Distillery.”
The Managing Director of Kalypso Media, Simon Hellwig, had this to say about the new studio’s founding: “The establishment of a new studio is a clear commitment to Kalypso’s growth plans for the coming years as we looked to expand our internal and external development efforts. Commandos is a great, globally-recognized brand and we will do our utmost to meet the expectations of the worldwide gaming community. We can’t wait to get started.”
In addition, Studio Director Jürgen Reußwig added his comments: “At the new site we’ll be looking to develop a truly worthy successor to Commandos, designed for both PC and console platforms for simultaneous worldwide release. On a personal level, I couldn’t be prouder to be working on a true icon of strategy gaming, and I’m looking forward to receiving applications from new and experienced developers alike that share our passion for the series.”
Kalypso Media Group and the unnamed studio have begun recruitment for the subsidiary, and the final name of the company is planned to be revealed soon.
