Hey there soldiers! I have jest recieved an important notice of a press release made by [b]DICE[/b] stating that they have bought [b]Trauma Studios[/b], owned and operated by CEO Frank Delise, and also the higly known makers of the famous [b]Desert Combat[/b] mod. Check it out! [quote] Digital Illusions buys New York based game developer Trauma Studios Inc. Initially Trauma will work with the development of a concept for a new PC game. - Through Desert Combat Trauma showed they are remarkably good at developing products the consumer wants. They understand our technology and are experienced and skillful game developers. This was the major factor to our acquisition, said Patrick Söderlund, CEO at Digital Illusions. - With Digital Illusions award winning team and Trauma Studios’ talent, I am confident we will be very successful together. We really look forward to being part of the Digital Illusions family, said Frank DeLise, CEO at Trauma Studios Inc. Digital Illusions buys all assets of Trauma and employ all its employees. Digital Illusions thereby buys the trademarks Desert Combat and Trauma Studios. Trauma will work with the development of games built on Digital Illusions’ technology produced in Sweden. The focus for Trauma – as for Digital Illusions’ Canadian office - will thereby be on concept and game developing, rather than on developing technology. Initially Trauma will work with the development of a concept for a new PC game based on the Battlefield 2 engine. The companies have been working together since February 2004, and Trauma will continue to develop certain parts of Battlefield 2. Trauma has nine employees today. According to plan the number of employees will increase gradually to be around 20 persons. Trauma Studios is specialized in FPS* games. They are best known for their Desert Combat mod of Digital Illusions' hit game, Battlefield1942, which was elected “Best Mod of the Year” in 2002 and 2003 by the gaming site Gamespy.com. Trauma also has developed gaming tools for Electronic Arts and the American Military. [/quote] WOW! Well, we now know that Trauma Studios and the Desert Combat team got what they deserved! Awesome job to you all, cheers to the future of the great line of FPS games, and wonderful job bringing the community a totally free, totally awesome modification, that of which is DESERT COMBAT! Until the next Press Release, we will see you on the battlefield!
