The 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.
