DevelopmentThe concept of Close Combat had been in the works for a long time. The basic game design already existed as Project X at the time Atomic Games was working on the V for Victory games for Three-Sixty Pacific, Inc., later became Advanced Squad Leader and Beyond Squad Leader when Avalon Hill wanted them to do a Squad Leader video game, and it was eventually called Close Combat when Atomic Games teamed up with Microsoft.
