Jagged Alliance Gets New Publisher, In Development Again

ja3-screen3

Last year, almost all hope on Jagged Alliance 3 ever seeing the light of day was lost when it was reported that development on the title had ceased and the game was possibly cancelled.

The German publisher known as bitComposer Games, which recently published Stalker: Call of Pripyat in Europe, has now obtained the rights to Jagged Alliance 3, which has been in the proverbial development hell for years now. Not only Jagged Alliance 3, but apparently the entire Jagged Alliance IP has been obtained from Strategy First.

"Although Jagged Alliance 2 was published over ten years ago now, the game still represents a milestone in the genre and boasts a huge following of loyal fans."

"We are delighted to acquire this classic game for bitComposer, and want to continue the success of the previous titles in the series, while giving the new version a contemporary look, bearing in mind the strong features of its predecessors."

A new developer for the game still has to be revealed, and platforms confirmed, but it’s a safe bet that the PC will be in there somewhere, seeing as that was the plan initially. A release date is said to be somewhere in 2011, so it won’t be out anytime soon, obviously. Apparently the game is in a preliminary development stage.

What does AAA stand for?

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