No mention yet on the US site.

Wonder if this is true, and why Ivan, Ubi and Oleg haven't even hinted at this!

No, it isn't. You may safely ignore it.

Don't believe these. Didn't we run into this problem with Pacific Fighters? I can think of a few other games as well.

Even the dev team has no idea when it will come out. God couldn't tell you when it will be done.

But maybe Amazon has a crystal ball http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Any date in 2006 is wildly optimistic, imho.

I certainly hope this is not true, as the flight model is as flakey as ever if not getting worse with each patch. If this is what can be expected from BoB, I'm not sure we are looking at any great leap forward in reality with BoB.

That date has been up on Amazon for a while. There's just no way it could be right. Given the amount of time it took for them to develop the original IL2 and the fact that they are still working on this series, I don't see how it could be out before late 06 at the earliest.

I remember when I was ordering Pacific Fighters from Amazon. It said: why not buy Pacific Fighters with Battle Of Britain to save money. So I had a look at Battle Of Britain to see what the release date will be, and it said it will be available from 6th June 2005. So I thinks its safe to say they don't have any idea when it will be out.

Maybe this can be stickied and we can have a forum betting pool.

I'm putting my money on late 2007, early 2008.

LOL I saw that too and thought the same thing...WTF?? No way it's going to be ready by Jan. 2006. 2007 is more like it.

3 things...Speculation, speculation, speculation!
I doubt if there is anyone posting here that knows anything for sure...

Don't try to get my hopes up, (the strain, the strain...).

look - everyone knows its a BS date from Amazon.

But isn't the 1c BoB website going to launch soon?...that would be the first step toward announcing any kind of tentative release date.

So when is that? hmmmmm?

You know as well as I do,
It's being withheld for a special release comemorating the 100th anniversary of the Battle of Britain

Maddox Games finished up BoB last week, that's what has been delaying the free add-on patch for Pacific Fighters. They sent me BoB on CD-R to test out ... they said I was the only beta tester this time (since I'm the only person in the world who has not downloaded a leaked beta patch) and that they absolutley would not release the game until I gave them my feedback. But, uhhh, I'm feeling kinda lazy and I'm also working my way through Brothers In Arms: Road to Hill 30 and I'm reading a couple of books so I don't know when I'll get around to testing the BoB game. Sorry guys.

It can't possibly be an official release date.
At no point does it say Be Sure!

From the Amazon link:

"Please note that release dates are subject to change."

Be sure.

In think in February or March someone posted this same like to amazon.com which set the estimated release date for June 2005. Unless I've missed something...

Anyways word running around the German forum was Q4 2006 or Q1 2007. I think thats a realistic date since BoB is a decent ways a long in production...
