Knowing the notoriety play.com have gained over the years with the inaccuracy of their release dates, I am taking this with a pinch of salt. However:

http://www.play.com/Games/PC/4-/1021002/Storm-Of-War-Ba...64340421&match_type= (http://www.play.com/Games/PC/4-/1021002/Storm-Of-War-Battle-Of-Britain/Product.html?source=5003&kwmid=4557064&kmcid=1664340421&match_type=)

says SoW is coming this Feb! Can anyone confirm that?

It's a typical play.com price. Whether the date's accurate or not, chances are the price is.

Oleg has suggested that SOW may reach release status sometime in late 2009.

SoW? lol
I doubt it will ever be released. We used to be waiting for it in 2006. It will soon be 2009 and all we'll have is a few old screenshots.

There are some very recent screenshots around.

And we're still waiting.

Personally, I won't be anticipating a release until we see some actual in-game movies or perhaps a demo.

Yes we have been waiting along time as Olegs first suggested release date was near the end of 2005. Unfortunately they changed their minds and decided they could still make money with IL-2 series additions instead of concentrating on SOW. SOW feature set would problably be unplayable on 2005/2006 computer systems anyway.

Sturgeons PFFFT!- waste frame rates and hog resources! As long as I get a nice hot cup of service blend tea at the end of a mission I'll be happy!

I'd take it with a briquette of salt until I hear it from 1C.. and even though they have been remiss with updates I cant imagine the sim going GOLD & us not hearing it there first.. anything is possible.

A blogger who somehow talked to Oleg, posted on his website that Oleg had told him to expect a release date of late August '09:

http://www.theghostfiles.org/ (scroll down)

Oleg confirmed this on 1C forums, although he did indicate that that date could be pushed back if technical problems arose.

That's a good way of covering your back; if you're never going to release the game just say you're going to release it in a month that doesn't exist. Personally I would choose Aurg or Slep but Fneb doesn the jorb.

If it hadn't been for Napoleon reinstalling the Gregorian calendar, Oleg could have launched SoW using the Republican calendar. If it had been released today it would have been:

I don't understand the gnashing of teeth, though I am looking forward mostly to the Korea project that RRG (or whoever) is working on.

We have the mods with tons of new, high quality stuff, that requires a minimum of hassle to use once you get it going.

New AC, maps etc, and lots of new misns and cmpns (including my own Redstar/Whitestar 1947 project I'm still working on) will give us all plenty to do that's new both offline and online.

I'm actually looking forward more to some of the mod projects that are in progress.

Since Olegs last update,when it became clear that SoW is at least a year away from release,I have pretty much stopped thinking about it.I am enjoying what I have (il2 modded) and one day in the future will log in to see SoW has been released.

It's Trolls like this one that drove Oleg off the forum.

What a shame that YOU aren't going to be making the next great combat flight sim.
Well that's okay when you can throw your $#!+ personality at the person who made the last one!

I guess you didn't see the last two updates or any of the news.
Not that your ignorant, juvenile expression is actually based on anything but your own insecurity.
So keep up your ignorant little rant, some day you may feel better about yourself.
Until then you're just making sure that NO ONE ELSE feels good about you either.

I bet we see a lot more vitriol from you about the time those report cards come out.
I'm sure the other kids will be happy if the class is marked on a curve.

The problem with the Large mouth, Blue Ticked Off Whiner dog breed is:

1) They bite the hand that feeds them.

2) They have a tendency to regurgitate vast quantities of bile, and as soon as they finish spewing, they gobble it up again, and repeat the whole process. They are not very bright... http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

Wise parents know that when kids get bored with their perfectly good toys and start whining for new ones they will just get bored with the new one straight away as well.

The sensible solution is to ignore the whining and send them to their room.

We've never been **promised** deadlines by Oleg that I recall.
It's always been "we try but no promise.
Be Sure was on other things like aircraft data and facts.

Is it all right for a member here like Oleg Maddox to have words put in his mouth that he
time after time posted just the opposite?
