Dutch publisher Project Three Interactive today announced they have acquired 100% of the shares in Swedish development studio Termite Games, who are currently developing the highly anticipated tactical first person shooter game "New World Order" for PC.

With the take-over, fast growing Project 3 underlines its ambition to become a groundbreaking developer and worldwide publisher of high quality games software. Project 3 CEO Robert Ercevic said: "We already considered Termite to be a very talented team, so when the opportunity arose for this take over, we moved in very quickly. They have really created a revolutionary 3D engine and with New World Order as the first game being made with it, we think the FPS community will be absolutely amazed. We are just thrilled they're now part of us and look forward to bringing their superb technology and games to various gaming platforms for years to come."

Project 3, who already had the rights to publish the game worldwide, also said the development of the game will now be accelerated and that a May 2002 release is still very much in the cards. Project 3 further announced it is looking to expand the Termite team and start working on Xbox and PS2 versions of New World Order in the very near future.

Jim Malmros of Termite Games added: "We're extremely pleased to have joined a solid and successful publisher like Project 3 and are eagerly looking towards the future. We have worked with them up close and personal in the past and are glad to now be family. With the team expansion, scheduled console versions of New World Order and then hopefully building on the New World Order franchise, all my dreams seem to come true."
