No meaningful information of any great substance has been released in the last two years (the date when Oleg said SoW simply had to be completed).

From what I can gather, two years over time and over budget, they have lost many key personel. SoW is now being worked on at a snails pace by a skeleton crew of Moscow staff, plus a large number of enthusiasts, recruited from the ranks of Il-2 players and contracted from around the globe doing piecemeal tasks. Their organisation is poor and the task of directing their efforts effectively is just as difficult as it was during the production of Pacific Fighters.

It's awful, but I think the evidence points more towards that than the, everything-is-peachy scenario. I have seen no evidence in the last two years to suggest that the production of SoW is under control. However there is enough circumstantial evidence to suggest that it has turned into a commercial and financial disaster for Oleg. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-sad.gif

Don't even mention the words "Pacific Fighters"---what a king-size screw up. F_IV's evaluation of the mystery of BOB looks right on the money.

Geez-us Christ, you guys, will you STFU? (excuse language pls)


SOW:BOB has NOT been cancelled, the amount of work is huge, the engine is also being used for Luthiers Korea project.

Oleg has already posted far more info/screenshots than people see for most other games.

Everything is going swimmingly well! Many of Olegs creditors are avid flight sim fans and have instructed him to take as long as he needs. Every dream, whim and fancy will be catered for. There will be a real Spitfire in every box and Mrs. Maddox will cook us bacon and eggs before every mission. Oleg will become so amazingly rich that he'll be able to recover two years of lost revenue in a flash. Everything will just fall into place, you'll see. There's absolutely nothing that could possibly go wrong!

I tried asking my Ouija board once when feeling frustrated about the lack of meaningful updates. It just sat there. I got the feeling I might have a better chance of contacting Harry Houdini.

I'd love just confirmation from Oleg himself it hasn't been cancelled.

You can get some info here:

If you take the time to read the posts, the MG team is hard at work on the SOW series. There definitely were some delays over the years, as most of the team where working on free and paid add-ons for the IL-2 series. Now over the last year all work on the IL-2 series has stopped and the full MG team are concentrating solely on SOW.

Some still hold hope for a Christmas release, but at this point we don't have enough info to make a guess. Oleg "HOPED" to have some system specs info by this summer. If this info is forthcoming we will have a better idea on SOW's status.

The Sky is not falling as some would have you believe.
