The studio pair has announced work on the next Carrier Command, which has gamers dusting off their strategic and tactical wits in air, land and sea.

Carrier Command: Gaea Mission will be coming to Xbox 360, PS3 and PC sometime in Spring 2010. More Carrier goodness promised for Leipzig.

"When we first heard about the opportunity to develop a game based on the original Carrier Command, we were instantly hooked," says Bohemia Interactive CEO, Marek Spanel.

"For us, Carrier Command was not only one of the most innovative games we had ever played but it is also one of the very few games that truly influenced our gaming tastes and motivated us in our own home grown game development, which later materialized in the form of Operation Flashpoint, with similar open ended gameplay and emphasis on a deeply simulated game world."

From the looks of the game's website things should shape up nicely - after all the bacteria that is humanity loves a good scrap.

"Having the opportunity to create an actual Carrier Command game is not only a great honor for us, but it also allows us to take the legendary title we all love and do it justice with a truly next-gen rendition," comments Otakar Nieder, the game’s project leader at Black Element Software.

The official press release promises that more intel will be forthcoming this month at the Games Convention in Leipzig.
