Bohemia Interactive is upset over Codemaster’s calling Operation Flashpoint: Dragon Rising a sequel.
Bohemia developed the original war sim, but Codemasters retained the rights to the name when the two companies split well into Op Flash 2′s development.
Be that as it may, Bohemia’s Marek Spanel is still a tad irate over the Codemasters game – being created in direct competition to Bohemia’s ArmA II – being called a “true sequel”.
“In the license agreement, Bohemia Interactive expressly reserved the exclusive right to develop sequels to the original OFP game,” says Bohemia’s attorney, Leora Herrmann.
“Codemasters also acknowledged that Bohemia owns all the intellectual property in the game – except the words ‘Operation Flashpoint’.”
Spanel added: “We can’t stop Codemasters from releasing a game using the words Operation Flashpoint,” he said.
“But it is not right to promote this game as the ‘official sequel to the multi-award winning Operation Flashpoint: Cold War Crisis’ or the ‘return’ of Bohemia Interactive’s ‘genre-defining military conflict simulator.’
“The awards were given for the game created by Bohemia Interactive – not to a name.”
Codemasters has actually dropped the “2″ from its game’s title.
Full drama detailed in the press release below.
