Correct.

Sadly, we can't even get a tidbit about 4.09 much less SoW:BoB

Right. How is ww2online these days? Going strong? Cheer us up with a story or two, because the situation in IL-2 and SoW:BoB is rather depressing ATM.

No-one seems to know, there are rumors of financial problems.

My take is this, it's already well behind it's initial release date when first announced, at least two years IIRC.

Knowing these things as i do, if you are skeptical about a game ever seeing the light of day and say so, you will be overwhelmed by people enforcing the line "wait and see" - this tends to kill off any meaningful discourse.

I didn't expect to see this until '08 anyway, but the fact that no news is forthcoming has to be worrying.

At this point how the heck could they have $ problems IL2 sold a few copies right.
A little info would be nice.
It seems to me that with the time and work they have invested to much not to release it.

Hi all,

'The best things come to those who wait'.

This is a direct quote from the Captain of HMS Hood in 1941 when he sighted the Bismark.

But seriously...BoB SoW is on way. I don't mind waiting because it will be the best!

Best Regards,
MB_Avro.

Well, one of the guys making train models for BoB posted recently asking for info...didn't find the link. Still he implied the project is still on so I don't know.

He said he hoped to start updates in July...there was no promise in any of his statements. This is why he rarely posts anything here anymore, people turn it into a promise.

There will never be a SOW:BOB. Dell bought the rights and they are retooling to create a massive Korean and Vietnam mod for Il-2.

Actually Microsoft just bought the rights and is making it a X-Box 360 exclusive program with a Microsoft Logo on top of BigBen.

wwiionline is at its best these months. They introduced TOEs (for those who know the game) and a number of new toys, most notably the light mortar, Bf109G6/U4, Hurricane IIB, Hawk 87B3, etc.

http://gba18.com/images/h81.jpg

The allies just yesterday won the latest campaign, with a pretty amazing strategic move. They gave the impression that they lose badly in the far north and south of the front, while in reality they were amassing troops for a huge blow in the center. The attack was so successful that Germany was cut in two and unable to resupply its southern towns and we even managed to capture the factories of Koln, just a few hours before they finish the research for the Tiger, while our newest Shermans were already in production. Good stuff.

For those who don't like online-only games (wwiionline is 7.5 per month after the first month which is free), I suggest a superb table-top/board game:

Axis & Allies miniatures

and the brand new

Axis & Allies War At Sea
