Especially the two real-time strategy games Combat Mission and WarCommander are currently storming the international market. They have already paved the way for the triumphant advance of the long awaited real-time strategy title Sudden Strike II, the sequel to the sales hit Sudden Strike, which is due to appear in Germany on May 31st 2002.

CDV's CEO Wolfgang Gäbler comments: "Like chess, the king among all strategy games, Sudden Strike requires meditation as well as planning and skill, there are simply far more than just 32 figures. People all over the world like to take on this challenge, which is why good real-time strategy titles are so successful."
