Some news on SoW? Surely they have something to show. Yeah we got the update in the 1946 game...that we paid for. But surely there is something new worth showing this loyal crowd.

I'm willing to bet that some of its being saved for the May/June period with things like E3 and other expos take place. Then we'll hear very little over the summer as summer is usually rather dull for video game news (for logical reasons) and then we'll probably hear plenty more starting late September.

I thought that E3 didnt exist anymore...I remember reading something about that a while ago. I agree with ya thou, I bet they are saving new exciting things for the smaller expos that they will appear at.

I read an interview of Oleg Maddox in the Jan/Feb '07 issue of PC Pilot (http://pcpilot.net/), and he said it would be Christmas '07, at the latest.

I woul LOVE for that to be true, but I have grown skeptical of 1C release dates over the years.

Here's a quote of the last Q & A exchange of the interview:

"PC Pilot-Oleg,when do you hope to release SOW:BOB?

Oleg Maddox-When it is ready,but not later than Chrisimas '07."

For whatever that's worth,I'm not holding my breath. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/compsmash.gif

I'm willing to bet he'll have it by X Mas. It's not like this game hasn't been in development forever. Late 2003 I remember seeing the Hurricaine mock up model that's on the '46 DVD. The 3 D models on the DVD are the same as when when UBI and 1C used to show BoB developement pix.

I know there's a lot of other things that incorporate the developement of BoB, but IL-2 has already benefited from flight models that have been partially developed for BoB.

I don't see a delay...or at least a long protracted delay... like some here and in other forums believe.
