As some of you may now codemasters operation flashpoint series have been canned along with bodycount. I haven't played bodycount myself, but from the trailers, it looks like rubbish. Regarding red river it was doomed from the beginning.. dragon rising had potential, but it ended out into nothing, because a lot were promised but never done. Its totally nuts that dragon rising sold over one million copies while red river only sold 2-3,000 copies. Yesterday I got an pm on my youtube account with a new video from ''redriverchannel''.

What the channel have done is basicly to upload every interview and revealed a lot of lies. Pretty much blows my mind. HOW can someone be this stupid? because everything that is said is lies. What boggles me most is 'This is a sequel to the EXTREMELY popular Operation Flashpoint: Cold war crisis''. Codemasters didnt even develop the first game.

To bad the game was called operation flashpoint. If it was called something else and if it was a diffrent dev team the game would probably be alive today. Because I recently played though dragon rising and it was decent as tactical shooter (but not polished at all) but really bad as operation flashpoint. It did have potential. Its beyond all how its even possible to screw up this much. Its funny how they lost almost one million of sales when they made the game more ''fun''.

Just a sidenote.. there is a lot of internal community humor so it may not be obvious what the meaning of it is.

And this is the cancelled bodycount

Dragon Rising was a buggy game with a lot of dumb design flaws. A $3 it might be worth buying, but not for much more. The ArmA series are the real OFP sequels.

Bodycount wasn't cancelled. I played the PS3 demo and it sucked big time.

The franchise itself is canned. While Bodycount is released, there will be no more Bodycount games or ''Flashpoint'' games from Codemasters for a long time or never.

I am sad that Bodycount didn't get canceled.
It sucks royally! I've played it a few days ago at GAME and it does NOT deserve to be called a spiritual sequel to BLACK.

It's a disaster on rails, it's so bad I actually cringed while playing it.

Black wasn't even good, really...this bodycount looks exactly the same. The whole point of it is to blow **** up with 50 round mags and it looks like that's what they did from this trailer.

No, it is different. I've completed BLACK many times and I know the difference.
BLACK is quite honestly one of THE best FPS' that has ever come out and it's console exclusive (as far as I know).

yeah i dont think there is a reason anymore either for them to buy the name. the Arma series has sold quite a decent amount of copies.

Codemasters have put the last nail in the coffin. You would need to spend a quite good amount of money on marketing in order to scrubb away the dirt Codemasters have washed over the brands name. I don't think BIS will fight just for the sake of a name that nowdays means nothing. The real Operation Flashpoint is still out there but with another name.
