Next Operation Flashpoint may get clever with metaphors

Codemasters’ next Operation Flashpoint title carries the subtitle Red River. That’s according to the online resume (via) of one Chris Brooker, an environmental artist on the project since this May.

A new game in the series was first suggested last year by executive producer Sion Lenton, with confirmation given just this week by Codies’ VP of studios Gavin Cheshire. It’s “full steam ahead” for the tactical shooter, he revealed in a recent interview.

Brooker’s resume now reveals that the game is currently in early development and scheduled for release sometime next year.

Like its predecessor, it’s being developed for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC.
