|Delta Force: Xtreme 2
Delta Force Xtreme2 will not be based on the Delta Force 2 levels. It will include entirely new terrains but the play will be much closer to the classic Delta Force games, Land Warrior, and BHD, than the first Xtreme. Due to the large number of terrains and assets it will ship on a DVD. Official screen shots should be released soon. There's no firm release date yet as we are still coordinating with our EU distributor, but it looks likely the EU release will be very close to the US release date.
Release date? 9th of February.

Note - this is not a press release - we'll be doing that soon, hopefully. I've been seeing the same questions pop up and I'll answer some of 'em here...
1.is dfx2 due out in february ? amazon and some other sites are takingpre orders for the game for dates between the 9 - 21 of feb 09.
There is no firm date, but I think March is more accurate based on Marketing and Distribution needs. Gives us more time to polish it anyways.
2. is dfx2 made on the same engine as dfaf?
No, DFX2 is not using the DFAF engine ( and yes, it's a totally separate game, and it's not a replacement for DFAF )
3.is dfx2 being shipped on dvd-rom or cd-rom, depending on what web site pre order i read some say cd some say dvd.
I'm pretty sure it's on DVD - we're planning on including a lot of content for mappers.
4. please can you tell me the spec of system needed to run dfx2.
Not official yet, but it will basically run fine on the same specs as DFX. It will probably have a larger HD footprint, and a little more RAM and juice on the video card isn't going to hurt - but if you can run DFX fine now - you'll be ok.
Also, DFX2 is not a remake or update of DF2 as a lot of people have been speculating. It's original missions, all new maps and terrains ( plus all the old terrains as well ).
Anti-cheat and hack reporting will be much more solid than previous games.
We'll try and 'leak' some more screens this week for you guys as well
edit: I forgot to mention that we have been looking at DFX and JO critically for weapons and vehicle balance for DFX2. We're aware of the previous balance issues with guns, nades, AT4s, helos, gunships and are addressing it.
