The after Thanksgiving shopping period is of no concern to UBI/Maddox. The Thanksgiving holiday is not celebrated outside North America.

Europe is the main market for the IL 2 franchise, always has been. Those of us in North America are merely a side show for UBI.

Keep that in mind and disappointment will be at a minimum.

the latest known date for release Acording to US Retailers is August 7, 07.
But again this is HIGHLY unlikly.
I would shoot for, at best the 1st or 2nd Tuesday in November. here are my reasons.

little to no information on:
System requirments
any planed demo
or any publicity or marketing whatso ever.
(yeah i know that UBI only hires the very best trained monkey's for thier marketing dept. So we can expect little marketing support from those clowns.)

and no offical word on any planed release date.
(the latter is most probably due to the fact that they don't want to box them selves in with anouncing a release date and then not deliver on it. and who could blame them? with this bunch of box monkeys that hang around these boards.....Oleg would get called ever name in the book and then some that ain't in the book.)

So keeping in mind that 90% of everything from Cd's to movies, to DvD's & games, consol or PC usualy drop on tuesday (which is an indistry standerd) and with the fact that they will contenue working on this till the very last moment and then start working on the patch after they send it of for pressing, publishing and printing. i think that the 1st oe 2nd Tueday in November would be a safe bet.

And i agree. the would dosn't revolve around our holidays in the US. So thanksgiving means nothing to the Eurot****. Christmas is a differant story.
And Oleg has said it HAS TO BE READY by November.

I'd say they have untill mid october to wrap it up and send it to press & publish. Which, in my mind would take about a month to compleate and prep for shiping. Give or take a week.

I'd say as soon as it's out the door and on the shelvs they'll be hard at work on a patch/ or add on. they have to support the fanchise and keep the cashflow comming into the company.

We should all also keep in mind that, unless things have changed around Olegs studio....there are only about 2 dozen or so ppl on staff there and they work very hard, long hours on multiple projects. Flightsims may be the fanchise and the money maker for Oleg....but it is not the only thing they do there. 1C has other projects ongoing for Oleg & Staff.

And i wouldn't expect an offical anouncement for a release date untill after it's already been sent off for Printing & pressing.

Before: "Sorry my English is not the best"

Ubi starts with a website normaly one year before release....
I never have seen a Game with no own website
later than 9 Month before release.
So you can see that Bob will be released not before Summer 2008.
There are 3 things that will sell a Game:

.
.
.
.
.
.
1) advertising
2) advertising
3) advertising

Ubi will not be so mad to sell a game whithout
advertising or great announcing.
