    Just google it for more info, it's coming out next year for PC and a next-gen console(probably 360 seeing as Bohemia liked developing OFP:Elite for the XB1), I'm guessing this will be the REAL OFP2.:)

    Looks like Codemasters are still going ahead with the 'official' sequel, Operation Flashpoint 2: Dragon Rising.

    Recently added images and a new short trailer @ IGN here.

    Either way I'm looking forward to both, absolutely love the OFP series, it still has infinite replay value even after being around for 6 or so years. In a way this is a mixed blessing as we get two awesome war sims to play, yet it will break the continuity of the series.

    I dont look forward to OFP2, seeing as it isnt even being done by the same team etc, just an attempt at milking the reputation that OFP has garnered, I'm expecting it to be very arcadey to sell more(Its codemasters dude).

    Both look awesome, Dragon Rising is clearly focusing on a more cinematic experience.

    Game 2 = ArmA 2 = Win!

    This will be much better than OFP2.

    We can only hope. Hopefully the new engine they I think are using will hopefully be much better than the one used for the first one, as it has its flaws and a better campaign with cut scenes and improved voice acting.

    Kind of, it wasn't a remake just a upgraded engine with a new story. They are redoing all the OFP game content for the updated engine.

    This doesnt seem like Game2 to me actually, it looks to me like ArmA with a bit of improved graphics, also it makes no mention of a dynamic campaign, nor are there in any screens showed the desert landscape that we saw all those years back.. Maybe this is just another filler between current and Game2? Who knows.

    Its quite obvious its the ArmA engine, but then again, ArmA used the OFPElite engine when it was first shown, so alot can change!

    And Nabolabis, BOHEMIA aren't redoing it, all they have done is start a COMMUNITY project to remake OFP on the ArmA engine, but from what I've read on the wiki the actual work is being done by independent community members rather than the actual Bohemia development team.

    You guys have to remember BIS have always said that Armed assault was always a testing ground for game 2 although its a great game now.

    We will be having a total new site design and forums up within the next few months that will cover both Armed assault and ARMA2.

    Armed assault was a disappointment for me because of the performance issues... I cried.

    While I will party agree however the campaign missions were incredibility buggy at times. I hope the expansion will sort that out . Also the AI and the fact that it doesn't work on a Vista 64bit with 4GB ram. Is truly annoying.

    I really hope number 2 is a massive improvement, I want a proper successor to OFP.
