In October 2003 the game makers Pyro Studios added another game to their successful Commandos series, Commandos 3: Destination Berlin. Pyro said this would be the last one in the series. Pyro didn't say the reason why it is the last, maybe the series wasn't selling too well, or they might have run out of ideas.
Then in April out of the blue, somehow an Eidos presentation got onto the internet, and it says something about a new Commandos game being a tactical shooter.
