Officials from British publisher Eidos Interactive have announced the next entry in the popular Conflict series, with Conflict: Denied Ops due for release on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC in spring 2008. The game, previously announced under the working title of Crossfire, will be the fifth in the series, which continues to be developed by original creators Pivotal Games. The series began with the widely popular, particularly in Europe, Conflict: Desert Storm and Conflict: Desert Storm II, as well as the subsequent Conflict: Vietnam. The later Conflict: Global Storm (aka Conflict: Global Terror) was less of a success, and it had been supposed that this would be the last entry in the series. The title of the new game refers to a fictional U.S. government agency willing to deny all knowledge of its operatives’ actions if discovered. Although previous games featured a four man team as one of the key selling points, the new title will focus on only two-man teams. The game will use Pivotal’s proprietary Puncture Technology for highly destructible environments. "We are taking the Conflict series in a new direction, making it more explosive and mature," said Robert Lindsey, executive vice president of sales and marketing at Eidos. "Conflict: Denied Ops delivers large-scale Hollywood style action sequences in real-world political hot spots, sure to appease fans of the FPS genre."
