Does anyone have any idea when Battle of Britain is coming out? I know about how there was origionally a line up of four add-ons, which were supposed to be realeased one at a time, but ended up with three of them coming out all at once as 1946, with BoB being left for some other time.

Yup, 1946 is an add-on and all-inclusive update to IL2 Forgotten battles. BoB will be a completely new game, written from the ground up (not an add-on to the current game). The short answer to your question is that nobody really knows the release date (it was originally announced for late 2005 and has been pushed back many times since then). I suggest you search the forum for it as there have been too many threads to count. Happy flying!

There have been so many speculations made by folks eagerly awaiting it,that it's kinda like the story of the "Boy who cried 'wolf!!!' ",it's gotten to the point that when it is released,people won't believe it til they see it. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif

Yeah, everybody's been waiting for almost a year now. I just wish I could find some kind of development update! The only real information I've found out about it is here:

Four? I only knew of three.

True. And this was for the best in my opinion. (Although one of the three was technically released separately as Pe-2 Peshka, in the West available as a commerical e-commerce download only until 1946.)


with BoB being left for some other time.
Left for another time only because it was never intended as part of the current IL-2 series. If you thought BoB was originally going to be another expansion for IL-2, you have been mislead. Plans for a separate BoB game under a new engine have been around since at least mid-2003, when RRG was restricted from making a full channel map for their Battle Over Europe project for Forgotten Battles.
