Codemasters’ Operation Flashpoint: Red River will release in the second quarter of 2011, along with the rally racer Dirt 3 from the same company. GRID 2 has also been put down for a 2012 release.
Speaking about Operation Flashpoint: Red River and Dirt 3, Codemasters CEO Rod Cousens told Eurogamer:
“I don’t think it does any good to publish in a congested period when everyone’s putting out their shooters… That’s not a window I want to go out in. It will be between 1st April and the end of June.”
GRID 2 will be released the year after:
“We’re not difficult to predict,” Cousens said. “If DiRT comes out next year, GRID will come out the following year, and then DiRT will be out the year after that.”
