Publisher Kalypso Media has confirmed the opening of a new, yet unnamed studio with the task of this new venture to create a Commandos game for the next generation. It is incredibly early days as the only confirmed appointment to the studio’s staff is Jürgen Reußwig who will be the Studio Director. Of course, he alone cannot make the Commandos game by himself so Kalypso is hiring. If you’re a developer and fancy working or are based in Frankfurt then head here.
On the establishment of the new, mystery studio Jürgen had the following to say:
“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 founder Simon Hellwig said about the new venture:
“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.”
It was in 2018 when Kalypso Media confirmed the purchase of the rights to the Commandos franchise, and at the time the publisher confirmed it would remaster the classic games as well as create new entries to the franchise. Commandos 2 HD Remaster has been confirmed and will be released on PS4, Xbox One, Switch and PC.
