Destineer Software, creators of Close Combat: First to Fight, have signed an agreement with CIA-sponsored company In-Q-Tel to create training simulations for the Central Intelligence Agency. The move is in accordance with In-Q-Tel's goal to use new technologies to solve Agency problems.
Destineer has previously worked with military personnel to create Close Combat, which had over 40 U.S. Marines consulting on the project to add realism based on their own experiences in the service. The company is headed by former Bungie vice president Peter Tamte. "We create highly realistic, action-oriented training simulations that provide unique gaming experiences," said Tamte. "Our partnership with In-Q-Tel will enhance our technology and expand the work we do with the federal government."
"Destineer's technology offers unique gaming simulation capabilities," said Gilman Louie, president and CEO of In-Q-Tel. "In-Q-Tel is very pleased with its partnership with Destineer and their promise of significant developments in simulation training that will enhance security readiness for the Intelligence Community."
