    <strong>[ Update ]</strong>

    <p>Speculation about the <strong>Jagged Alliance 3</strong> super secret mystery developer is over. <a href="http://www.akella.com/en/news/" target="_blank" title="Akella">Akella</a> has <a href="http://www.akella.com/ru/newsarchive/2006/12/08/ja3/" target="_blank" title="announcement">announced</a> that they are working with <a href="http://www.strategyfirst.com/en/" target="_blank" title="SFI">Strategy First</a> and F3 Games on the high profile title.</p><blockquote><p>Company " Akella" at participation of company Strategy First and studio F3games declares development of project Jagged Alliance 3. As Richard Terren (Richard Therrien) - vice-president Strategy First on creative questions earlier declared - long-awaited new part Jagged Alliance will keep the general spirit and an atmosphere and remains is true to traditions of the previous games of the well-known series.

    Jagged Alliance 3 is:

    -The flexible structure of missions including five contradictory participants of the conflict, on the party 4 from them it is possible to take part in operations
    -More than 20 nonlinear missions which are passing under various weather conditions, during various time of day
    -Significant number of the generated stages, differing unique style of passage and complexity
    - Fascinating story line
    -Unlimited freedom of tactical decisions with an opportunity to diversify methods of application of various kinds of arms and equipments according to tasks in view
    -The realistic system of damages of objects and characters with an opportunity precisely to get in any place on a body of the opponent
    -Unique tactical opportunities for each character
    -The classical role system allowing players to type group of 6 of mercenaries of various nationalities, including already good the familiar and grown fond characters from Jagged Alliance 1 and 2 (each character possesses the character, history, sympathies and a unique set of retorts)
    -New, completely a three-dimensional game engine
    Wait for details about the project in the near future. </p></blockquote><p>This shouldn't be too much of a shock since Akella is already involved with Strategy First and .dat on <a href="http://www.strategyfirst.com/en/games/Disciples3/" target="_blank" title="D3">Disciples 3</a>. </p><p><em>Thanks to Hamster for supplying the tip, translation, & leg warmers.</em></p>

    Looks like F3 Games will be the team actualy developing JA3
    , with Akella as publisher and supervisor.
    Info page at DTF.ru says that 90% of F3 is comprised of people, who worked on shitty shooter Stalin Subway
    and somewhat decent strategy game based on blitzkrieg engine The day after.
    Not very impressive...

    I don't know about you guys, but The Stalin Subway has to be one of the greatest game titles, and possibly the greatest game ever:

    Mystery of Moscow Metro easily beats The Stalin Subway :)

    The Stalin Subway didn't fail because of bad gameplay, it got bad reviews due to poor marketing.

    So does that mean no strategic map? Makes it sound like a Silent Storm clone.

    Well, one of the Gameworld Navigator(russian game magazine) forum moderators claims that he have visited F3 office recently and seen strategic map in the game, with colors showing areas controled by different factions.

    Richard Therrien confirmed at The Bear's Pit that there will indeed be a strategic layer.
    And that we can expect plenty of randomization.
