Where is SoW: BoB

Anyone have any information? Does anyone in a high position even look at this forum or has Oleg just left us?

Do a search on the forum for this topic...

You'll find a fair bit of information.

BoB is apparently hiding.He didn`t appear at E3, he doesn`t come here anymore.I`d say he left for good.

Thats because nobody seems to have a memory or seem to know anything about games being released. I find it a bit odd that people are somehow expecting releases in a couple of months time and yet we haven't seen a website, a forum, any seriously official screen shots, or anything of the like. We know the project is in development, we got a very good look at it on the 1946 bonus disk (most of which has been put on YouTube I think), and we know that most of the work is largely behind the scenes and we really won't appreciate it if we saw it anyways.

My guess...is that when its around 4-6 months from release we'll see the PR campaign from Ubisoft kick into high gear. Then we'll see things rolling and probably in a rapid fire sort of way. I suspect the game won't be fresh off the shelf before we and Oleg are talking about new planes, maps, scenarios, and new features galore.

In the meantime...we can return to doom and gloom or just have fun with the current stuff.

Either way http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

Your question can only be answered in the Christmas (of 2008)

Icefire I was referring to the news blackout that has been imposed on Oleg from you know who.
SOW will be out when ubi decide to release it,not when its done.At least for us in the west.Living in the UK I could be lucky and get it around the same time as the Russians,but after what happened with Sturmo 46 who knows when America/Canada etc gets it (if at all).The truth is none of us know,and the one's that do know are not saying/not allowed to say.Not a good situation.Luckily IL2 has a lot of life left in it.

It will definately be out before Christmas 20??. Personally, I'm glad there's no appearent rush at Ubi's end, and I hope the pressure's off the dev. team also. Il2's still kicking hard, and the longer BoB takes, the more sorted I hope it will be.

DVX Immortal? Funny, he wasn't at any of the Oleg stalker meetings...

My last info (a few day old, from a person with close relation to the team) is still saying: end of 2007...UBI is insisting on the term.

Yep definitely a news blackout...that usually means they are saving stuff up for a blitz at some point. Although from our perspective it will probably be like a slow trickle.

I'm all for these annoyed posts for info. I hope more and more people clamor. I think the lack of communication is weird, and terrible business. These posts might make somebody communicate.

Well I am a noob to IL2 and just bought it last month and for the past 3 weeks can't put it down. Still working out PC problems but the game is amazing and I pre ordered SoW two days ago. I really hope it comes out this year after all of the reading about how long it has been pushed back. The screens look amazing. Can someone point me in the direction of connecting online?

Well, there's definately something rotten in the kingdom of Denmark. Even if the game will not be ready until christmas 2009, why would UBI force Oleg to stay completely silent for a year? Nothing can be gained by that.

The only conclusion I can think of is that there is something really foul going on. Are 1C/Maddox Games and UBI breaking up? The rest of 1C:s games are going to be published by Atari in the US - but hearsay tells us that SoW:BoB will still be published by UBI. I have not seen any official confirmation about this at all. UBI semms to have erased all traces of their involvement regarding SoW:BoB...

A year ago, Oleg said that Maddox games NEEDED to get SoW:BoB out before the end of 2008 to survive as a business. 1946 seems to have sold less than expected and no one thinks that BoB will be released before 2009 so what happens then? As we get no info at all Maddox Games may already have ceased to exist and all the devs have been fired?

Hi all,
really asking: which source do people refer to when say that 1C' s silence is due to a UBI request? Maybe I have missed that.

It is impressive that there is so much luck of information about BOB.

It is a real shame....

If Maddox Games was "out of business" we would be hearing from someone...a disgruntled employee, a "friend of a friend"...something. The fact that all is quiet leads me to believe that they have "something up their sleeve". You can't keep that many people quiet unless they ALL see the benefit to remaining quiet...If everything was in ruins some "pissed off employee" would be venting.
