Combat Mission 2 Update
1:42 PM | Tuncer Deniz | Comment on this story
If you were a fan of the World War II combat simulation, Combat Mission, then you've probably been itching to play the sequel, Combat Mission - Barbarossa to Berlin. According to a recent update by developer Big Time Software, the game is "95% done with game feature implementations," and they except to ship the game in the first quarter of 2002. Here's a bit more info on the expected release date:
We are currently projecting end of 1st Quarter 2002. This is later than we had expected, but the extended support of Combat Mission - Beyond Overlord greatly delayed the start of CMBB. We do not regret the time spent making CMBO that much better, but it did not come without consequences.We'll keep you posted on any future developments. In the meantime, be sure to check out our review of the first Combat Mission (if you haven't already done so).
As with CMBO, we will not release CMBB until it is ready, which is why we do not have a firm ship date. This can be frustrating for some, but if every software developer behaved this way there would be a LOT more great games to choose from out there. Software development, especially game development, is an art and not a science.
As for the demo... we are not planning on releasing a demo until we are VERY near to release. We lost almost 1.5 months of CMBO development time when we released the Beta Demo because of all the support which was necessary for the obviously not finished game. This means that if we release the demo sooner the final product will definitely be delayed. On the whole, this is not desirable for anybody.
What comes next? Well, we are going to release a batch of screenshots showing off the new terrain graphics sometime this month. We are sure you will be impressed.
