Bitmap Brothers march on Berlin

Codemasters to publish new World War II action-strategy game

Source - press release

Codemasters have announced that they will be publishing the latest effort from Britsoft developers The Bitmap Brothers. Due out next summer and provisionally titled World War II : D-Day To Berlin, it's a real-time action-strategy game which sets you the task of driving the Axis forces back across Europe as an Allied commander. With interest in World War II once again high following the recent success of the excellent Band of Brothers and not-so-excellent Pearl Harbour, Codemasters have high hopes for the title. Bitmap Brothers MD Mike Montgomery reports that the company is "committed to creating an experience that will have broad appeal from the core RTS player through to the casual gamer who will be attracted by the game's historical detail", and with the marketing might of Codemasters behind them they "believe [it] can become a major blockbuster". Hopefully it will turn out better than their last effort, the rather rough round the edges Z : Steel Soldiers, which flopped at retail and helped to plunge publisher EON Digital into financial turmoil.
