Commandos not MIA Afterall- New Title Coming

I was a big fan of the Commandos series, particularly Commandos: Behind Enemy Lines, Commandos: Beyond the Call of Duty, and Commandos 2: Men of Courage. Commandos 3 was bloody hard as I remember. The only Commandos title I haven't touched is Strike Force, which by many accounts was rubbish anyway, so I'm glad I didn't. Not just fans, and critics, but even the developers say that Strike Force was a "mistake".

I guess shifting from strategy to FPS doesn't always work as well as you hope.

Anyway, Pyro Studios, a name I haven't heard for a long time, says that a new Commandos title will be coming sometime in the future, and that it will restore our good faith in the WW II strategy genre, and the Commandos series too.

Update: Well, it turns out that the site that started this rumour, gamer.nl, was fibbing a little.

Pyro Studios has denied any rumours about another official Commandos game. Apparently at GamesCom, their comments about another game in the series were taken out of context: they claim that there may be a game in the future, but nothing concrete for now- certainly nothing in development or anything.

This is what Pyro had to say: "We always had in mind to bring back to life the Commandos series; this isn't something new, but nowadays there's nothing official or decided and everything is still a wish, nothing else."

What does AAA stand for?

It's not an abbreviation of anything. It just means the best of the best...
