We're looking for great things from the UK market!" Excalibur's MD, Robert Stallibrass said, "Red Orchestra is an outstanding product.

About Tripwire Interactive


Tripwire Interactive LLC was formed by the team that created the original Red Orchestra, the award-winning mod for Unreal Tournament 2004®, in February 2005. Although the founders and staff of Tripwire have many individual game credits to their names, Red Orchestra: Ostfront 41-45 is Tripwire's first independent title. Red Orchestra won Phases II, III and IV and the Grand Finals of Nvidia's "$1,000,000 Make Something Unreal" contest - every phase it was entered for!

With the fanbase doubling on every release, a further string of industry accolades and awards followed from PC Gamer, Computer Games Magazine, Gamespot DLX, Gamespy, ModDB and Fileplanet. After winning the respect of gaming industry luminaries, online gamers and press members worldwide, Tripwire Interactive was incorporated to take the Red Orchestra franchise forward as a retail game. Comprised of many original development team members, Tripwire Interactive embodies the very essence of grass roots development but with the professional talent and attitude of the industry's brightest.
