Codemasters stops patches, DLC for Operation Flashpoint: Dragon Rising

Codemasters announced today that Operation Flashpoint: Dragon Rising will have no further DLC or patches, effectively breaking gamer hearts around the world; at least they waited until after Valentine’s Day. According to Codemasters’ community manager Ian Webster who broke the news on the game’s forums, following the release of the ‘Overwatch’ DLC for the PlayStation 3, the team has “completed the Dragon Rising chapter of Operation Flashpoint and that’s it for DR-related content going forward.”

Apologizing for anyone that’s left out in the cold by the decision, Webster says it’s for the best in the “grand scheme of future plans” and that “the vast majority of the team are already busy planning the future of modern combat,” a future that was hinted at last October when executive producer Sion Lenton said they’re “already prototyping new features” and that Codemasters’ Ego game engine is ‘moving forward in leaps and bounds’.
