Kalypso Media has secured the worldwide rights to Tropico 3 from Take-Two Interactive Software, Inc. Kalypso will release the third iteration of the famous and admired PC strategy game series in summer 2009. Tropico 3 is based on the first Tropico game.
"The Tropico series is a great IP which we are excited to continue. The game will be the biggest project Kalypso has realized so far in its short history and we are focussing on achieving a worldwide PC hit with this brand. The acquisition of Tropico along with other key licenses is fundamental to our future growth," says Simon Hellwig, Managing Director of Kalypso Media.
Tropico 3 will be developed by Bulgarian studio Haemimont Games, who are also responsible for the development of Kalypso's Grand Ages: Rome.
The game will attract the fans of the Tropico series, as well as newcomers with state-of-the-art graphics, complex gameplay similar to the other titles in the series and a comprehensive multiplayer mode.
