The Commandos Games Are Coming Back

Commandos, the classic PC stealth series, has been missing in action for years. No more: Strategy publisher Kalypso (Tropico) has bought the rights to the games, with plans to bring them back.

This includes the obvious thing — re-releasing the existing games — but also more ambitious plans as well, with Kalypso’s Simon Hellwig saying they’re looking at “the development of a completely new games for all platforms [and] an extensive adaptation of the existing titles for contemporary technologies and platforms”.

Excellent news! In the meantime, if you’re a Commandos fan and have been looking for a similar experience, you should check out Shadow Tactics (and, if you’re into board games, V-Commandos).


    I'm personally more excited that they got their hands on the Imperial Glory IP. Great game for it's time

    That's great, I loved that series. I hope they do it justice!

    Glad to hear this, I enjoyed Commandos a lot back in the day, but going back to it recently the controls were so much worse than I remembered. Perfect opportunity to update the controls to something more user-friendly.
