The subject line says it all ... is SHIV on schedule? When is it due out?

Hmmm ... in other words, one or two YEARS http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-sad.gif

I was under the impression that there was substantial code reuse possible.

One of the very nice things about Harpoon III is that you can pretty much design any scenario anywhere in the world if the needed platforms are in the database (and the database is being continually updated). Of course, H3 is a very different kind of game. Still, farsighted design should make SH4 easy to create from SH3. Obviously, that was not the case.

I think SHIV will be over-anticipated and will turn out like SHIII with Jap skins and new US skins. However, if they use a different engine, or a highly improved SHIII engine, I'll buy.

AFAIK, no new engine, no compatiblity to SH3, but new gameplay features like rescuing pilots.


Don't hold me to it.

Rescuing pilots , oh great for some reason , i can see some downed pilots getting plowed over by subs. some by accident , and probably some on purpose , cause i know someones gonna do it , just to see what happens.
