The new Cannon Fodder may not make it to UK shelves.
Codemasters has confirmed to MCV that Cannon Fodder 3 – which was announced this morning – is currently only planned for release in Russia and the Commonwealth of Independent States.
The publisher also clarified that the game will be not be an in-house Codemasters project. Instead, it is the result of a licensing deal between Codemasters and Russian firm Game Factory Interactive.
In 2008 Codemasters licensed the Cannon Fodder IP to GFI for a one-title project,” the company said.
Under the agreement, GFI is designing and developing a new game based on the series for release in Russia and the CIS territories. Codemasters understands that GFI’s plans for distribution and release outside of Russia and the CIS have yet to be announced.”
There is still no word on whether this will be a boxed or downloadable game.
