There was an announcement from RRG that new screenies would be out "This Week". But that was a couple of weeks ago http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-sad.gif .

If I didn't love this game so much, it'd seem quite funny.

Tell me about it! That message has been there for 3 weeks, actually! And it's very negligent on their part (RRG). If they're not going to bother to follow up on their promises, then what's the bloody point? Instead, they just end up annoying their fans and customers and losing all their credibility. Marvelous marketing RRG, really!

When the Pe-2 (4.05) was released it took a couple of weeks after it was released on CD in Russia before it was sold in the rest of the world.
As there have been no updates on the RRG site or the 1C Game site about the Russian release I don't think it will be.
I think 1C saw low sales of the Pe-2 (realised 4.06 would be even lower) and the problems with boonty and decided not to release it.
Oleg and Co are all involved with SoW,BoB so thats it.
Gone, not with a bang but a wimper.

I don't think so. I know of several people that will buy PE-2 when Manchuria gets released or are waiting for all three on a disk. These people are waiting to see if PE-2 is included with manchuria or not. When 4.06 is released I think it will not only sell more than PE-2 but there might be several PE-2 additional sales as well, depending on weather or not PE-2 is included with 4.06.

But 1C don't know about people who are waiting for all three on disk, they ony see low sales of 4.05. They also know addons always sell less than the original product.

People also seem to forget that to buy 4.06 you need 4.05.

I am currently running the 4.04M complete DVD. I am waiting for a DVD with all three add-ons on it (the way it should have been done in the first place)Hopefully they will release one. Nothing fancy just the disk in a box like the merge DVD was.

With the online distribution...its basically money in their pocket. As it was told to us that 4.06 is basically done already...its not likely that they would can it at this point. The only cost is in the upkeep of the servers for download...which isn't a huge deal when you already run servers for explicitly that purpose. So its really just pure cash ..they don't have to print CD's or manuals.

Low sales aren't likely to stop this release. Plus they had to have known that Pe-2 would sell only marginally. If they didn't they were incredibly slow.

Gotta agree with Icefire. 99% of the work has already gone into the add-ons and they're being marketed in the lowest cost way.

All they have to do is set up the d/l's.

But I hope it happens soon. I'm holding off doing a bunch of stuff waiting for the new planes and maps.

Everything depends on if France wins the world cup or not. If france wins We'll have to wait until every last employee at Ubi has sobered up...which could be an eternity.

The Italians can save the add-on but the Macchi's are porked...

The ONLY reason I bought Pe-2 was for the Manchuria add-on. If people are going to buy 4.06, they have to have it. I hope low sales for 4.05 aren't what's holding the release up. I think they'll see a surge in sales when 4.06 comes out.

I'm still debating on VVS '46. If we are going to get some of the maps (Slovakia and Norway in particular), I'll buy it the first chance I can. If not, I'll get it, but probably not immediately.

I'm sure Ubi understands that some of this content hasn't got that much appeal for the Western market, that's why Pe-2 was released before Manchuria. They were assured of sales of the former by the appeal of the latter. We'll probably get some free content AFTER 4.07, if for no other reason than to boost sales of all the add-ons.

IMO, 4.06 shlould be released as free addon, because it needs 4.05 and 4.07 will need 4.06 sales gonna be boosted and everyone satisfied.. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

The Pe-2 was released before Manchuria because it was made earlier, then Manchuria.

It just that simple. You should read some Okkam stuff - may find some new, interesting ideas. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif
