Kalypso Media is working on a next-gen Commandos game

Kalypso Media has today announced the formation of a brand-new game development studio, explicitly tasked with the production of a next-generation entry in the Commandos strategy series. Based in the Greater Frankfurt area, the new as-yet-unnamed studio’s first appointment is industry veteran Jürgen Reußwig, former Studio manager at Sunflowers and Managing Director of Games Distillery, who takes up the position of Studio Director.

Simon Hellwig, Managing Director and founder of Kalypso Media Group, said:

“The establishment of a new studio is a clear commitment to Kalypso’s growth plans for the coming years as we looked to expand our internal and external development efforts. Commandos is a great, globally-recognized brand and we will do our utmost to meet the expectations of the worldwide gaming community. We can’t wait to get started.”

Studio Director Jürgen Reußwig added:

“At the new site we’ll be looking to develop a truly worthy successor to Commandos, designed for both PC and console platforms for simultaneous worldwide release. On a personal level, I couldn’t be prouder to be working on a true icon of strategy gaming, and I’m looking forward to receiving applications from new and experienced developers alike that share our passion for the series.”

John is the founder and Editor in Chief at DSOGaming. He is a PC gaming fan and highly supports the modding and indie communities. Before creating DSOGaming, John worked on numerous gaming websites. While he is a die-hard PC gamer, his gaming roots can be found on consoles. John loved - and still does - the 16-bit consoles, and considers SNES to be one of the best consoles. Still, the PC platform won him over consoles. That was mainly due to 3DFX and its iconic dedicated 3D accelerator graphics card, Voodoo 2. John has also written a higher degree thesis on the "The Evolution of PC graphics cards." Contact: Email
