With Codemasters' Operation Flashpoint: Dragon Rising missing its originally planned summer release, original Flashpoint developer Bohemia Interactive scootches its spiritual successor's release up a week.
ArmA II will now be shipping for the PC on the 19th of June, one full week ahead of the originally planned release date. For awhile it seemed like Codemasters' Operation Flashpoint: Dragon Rising and ArmA II would be hitting store shelves neck and neck, further fuelling the rivalry between fans who believe that Bohemia's games are the true Operation Flashpoint sequels and those supporting Codemasters' effort. The point is certainly moot now, with the delay of Dragon Rising separating the games by an entire season.
Consider this extra week icing on Bohemia fan's cake.
Kotaku AU Note: Dunno if this will affect the Australian release, currently set for July 9.
