Well, February 18 was a little too wishful anyways. But, we know that theres probably a good reason for the delay.

I agree I lost interest in really wanting it to come out, its coming out whenever and thats when Ill get it. Kinda disapointed no b25 or any russian twin engine bombers. Theres always 6-10 months for another planes pack maybe they will do the cockpits of all the ai and sell it for 40. I'd prefer that over a new sim or theater addon

Ok no matter how much I say it...there is no official release date and there never has been. The release date has not been changed because there was nothing to begin with.

EBWorld et all guess.

Several groups make some guesses (I have guessed myself - placing it around March something) here and there but they are nothing more than guesses.

Take some advice. Accept that it will come out when it comes out. We'll only be fairly certain about the dates when its already been gold mastered (we don't know if it has been yet) and when the annoucement is made. At that point we can be fairly certain about dates because replication typically takes the same time and distribution will happen shortly after that. About two weeks after the release.

Sorry if this sounds semi-hostile but between people here about the Ace Expansion pack and people on the R6 boards about how Athena Sword has been delayed seemingly again...it just needed some kind of response. Take a close look at how releases of games are managed (PR wise) and you'll see a fairly common pattern...even the publisher has no official date till they know for sure that its gold mastered.

Yeah, I checked with EB today and the date given is March 3rd. No big deal about the push back here. Like I told the guy at EB, so long as it's a good product when released I don't care how long they take.

I'm waiting for the release of the 939pinned socket processors from AMD http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

oh, wrong forum.

But seriously, it seems like we are always waiting for this stuff. I remember waiting forever for the new FX from Nvidia, only to be a bit disapointed.

Anyway, I can't wait until the 939's come out so I can build my new monster system, it should run Aces Expansion Pack just smooth as silk http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

Way expected. This ALWAYS happens. First January, then early Feb, now March... no surprise. I really try not to think about it. I`ve decided to upgrade my PC over the next few weeks and that`s keeping my mind off it. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Once a product has been handed over to the publisher, there is nothing else that Oleg, or any developer can do to speed it up.

Remember that release of one patch was held up because Ubi was testing (!?!?!?!?!?!) it. How much the more with an expansion pack?

I didn't see any official release date.

I did however see a date offered by EB but they are always given a rough estimated release date fairly early on in development from the publisher if I understand correctly. It's common for the product to be finished later than the original projected release date.

Again, I don't recall seeing any promises by UBI or Oleg so I guess we'll know when they tell us. I can live with that.

I agree with Lead - in my opinion, they should wait till some Allied bombers are done.

I agree with Leadspitter that the game needs some twin engine Attack Aircraft.
The game has some great shipping set ups, with nothing to fly and attack it with except the He-111 and the IL-2 asfar as flyable aircraft go's.
The A-20, B-26, B-25, A-26, Pe-2, Fw-200, Ju-88 or some of the other Allied or Axis aircraft made flyable would be more of a game improvment than more fighters.
It would open a whole new area of the existing game that wouldn't need change to make it happen, but can't really be played right now with out the aircraft to use with it.
Maybe in the Future.

I guess we'll see it when it's done.

It still irritates me that someone in UBI made calls to retail chains telling them to expect this new software on a given date (today actually, according to a retailer I frequently visit). If there's no "announced" release date, then why the heck are UBI telling the retailers to expect it for placement on their shelves on a certain date??

Typical UBI "carrot and stick" ploy.Works everytime.(Patches,Up-Dates,Add-Ons,etc...)

I ordered mine through gameplay.co.uk They just e-mailed me and apologised that the game has been delayed. However, their e-mail states that the publisher has delayed the release until 20 Feb. but now their web site says 12 March.
