This is pure speculation, but WesM733 of the playstation.com boards pointed something out in one of the new screen shots that I find interesting.
In this image, on the left side of the building as well as on the front right, you can see an image that looks like the Polish flag. If that is in fact the Polish flag, then what would it be doing on a North African-themed map when Poland is in Europe? If you remember, when the game was first announced the plan was to release it with "5 North African themed maps" including Crossroads. Is this a sign that Confrontation will launch with more than 5 maps? Maybe it just means that Slant Six had a change of plans and decided to geographically mix it up a bit within the first 5 maps. Or, it could mean absolutely nothing and that image could be a placeholder.
I assume we'll know for sure in a month when the new EGM starts hitting subscriber's mailboxes, but none the less its fun to speculate.
recklessmind of Neogaf pointed out that it looks more like Austria's flag, also a European country.
