Thanks to community member Shaz73, A new Question and Answer session with Tim Brown (Senior game designer) was found on www.411mania.com.
A total of 5 questions where asked to Tim Brown. Most info will sound familiar for most of you, but it’s still worth a read:
Q. An inevitable question – how did you approach providing the sim-like qualities of the PC original and adapt that for consoles keeping the essential elements that make it Operation Flashpoint?
A. We wanted to keep key elements from the original such as the one bullet kills to vital organs, a huge game world, sandbox gameplay and lots of weapons, equipment and vehicles for the player to play with. Some of these points were fairly trivial to have on a console however we’re incredibly proud of Codemasters own EGO engine technology behind Operation Flashpoint: Dragon Rising and its very impressive 220km² playable island and the 30km draw distance.
Tim Browne also stated “Call of Duty: Modern Warfare is a good game in its class, but did in no way affect Operation Flashpoint: Dragon Rising”

Thanks to all the 110+ people chilling out in IRC for keeping me and other company during the wait.
Thanks for to Shaz for uploading this video,
We all await GameStar.de to hunt him down and kill him – but such is life, so view often and make a backup .
Just found by JoeAcorn, is a new preview/interview it looks like from GamesStar TV. I have no idea whats in it as I don’t pay GameStar to watch online videos. If you got a account check it out and let us know what it like (Forums, IRC, Twitter, OFP2.org Comments).
During the typing of the e-mail and making of this news post Shaz (The media bloodhound and local street dealer) was informed of this video. He is now ‘acquiring it’ and attempting to upload.
Who delivers? Shaz does again of course!
