Return of a Classic: Jagged Alliance 3 Announced

Old school PC gamers should remember the Jagged Alliance games with much fondness. Despite it being more than a decade since the release of Jagged Alliance 2, news comes today of a third entry into the series.

The German publisher bitComposer Games has secured the full rights to the license from Strategy First, and will publish this famous strategy game sometime in 2011.

"Although Jagged Alliance 2 was published over ten years ago now, the game still represents a milestone in the genre and boasts a huge following of loyal fans," says Wolfgang Duhr, Managing Director of bitComposer Games. "We are delighted to acquire this classic game for bitComposer, and want to continue the success of the previous titles in the series, while giving the new version a contemporary look, bearing in mind the strong features of its predecessors."

That's all the details at the moment, but we look forward to hearing more. Stay tuned!

    I guess it's time to dust off my copies of the original 2 and addons and see if I can beat the games before the third installment comes out. Nothing like a good old turn based strategy game.

    Does this mean Steam or some other online content system will have a sale on the digital copy versions of the older ones?
