Gathering, the publishing label of Take-Two Interactive Software, and Destineer Publishing have announced the next two titles in the Close Combat series; Close Combat: First to Fight and Close Combat: Red Phoenix, for the Mac, PC and Xbox systems. Close Combat: First to Fight, due for release in late 2004, is a team-based first-person shooter created under the direction of active-duty U.S. Marines. Close Combat: Red Phoenix is a real-time strategy game loosely based on the best-selling novel “Red Phoenix” by Larry Bond, and is anticipated for worldwide release in early 2005. Both games are being developed by Destineer and Atomic Games.
