Major German PC game publisher CDV Software has announced the continuation of its alliance with Hungarian developer Digital Reality, announcing a new European developer named WHIZ Software that will work on next-gen console and handheld strategy titles for the companies. CDV is the publisher of Codename: Panzers, Divine Divinity, Sudden Strike, Combat Mission, Hammer & Sickle, Cossacks and the American Conquest and Blitzkrieg series, and is Europe’s leading publisher of PC strategy titles, making it likely that some of titles, the first of which to debut in Q4 2007, will make use of CDV's existing franchises. CEO of CDV Christoph Syring commented of the announcement: “WHIZ Software Kft will develop titles that will take advantage of the advanced features of next-generation consoles and handhelds; aiming to raise the bar for strategy titles, an often overlooked genre on both platforms.” He continued: "CDV’s range of experience in publishing strategy titles, combined with Digital Reality’s outstanding development work within the genre will allow WHIZ Software to lead the charge for bringing strategy games onto new platforms."
