Q: Will there be any improvements that have been developed for SoW:BoB in terms of sounds and graphics that will make their way into the FB game engine with these add-ons?
A: SoW:BoB will be completely new sim, based on a brand new next-generation engine. It will not be backwards-compatible with the IL-2 series. We just use there the experience that we were getting during long 5 years of IL-2 series on the market (Long enough for the game software product isn’t it?)
Q: Has the integrating of the expansions into the IL-2: FB/PF software seriously distracted the development of SOW: BoB and delaying its release?
A: No. My 3 guys were periodically busy with these add-ons. They were incorporating all things that we received from RRG. However it doesn’t means that their work was easy…
Q: What is the current projected release date for SoW:BoB?
A: Q4 2007
Thank you Oleg for addressing our questions. We’re looking forward to both add-ons and “Storm of War: Battle of Britain“.
