Staten Island, NY, October 12th, 2005 - Matrix Games (www.matrixgames.com) is pleased to announce its plans for the recently acquired publishing right for the Operational Art of War series.

Matrix Games has reached an agreement with the original designer and developer of The Operational Art of War, Norm Koger, to assist in updating the most recent version of the engine to assure full compatibility with the latest Windows XP systems. Matrix Games plans to publish an updated version of the latest Operational Art of War engine, including some fixes and tweaks for issues that have become known since the last major release.
