Silent Hunter Online Announced

Ubisoft announces Silent Hunter Online, an upcoming free-to-play, browser-based multiplayer game inspired by the Silent Hunter submarine simulation series. The Silent Hunter Online Website is online, offering a promotional trailer and sign-ups to be a beta tester. Here's a bit on the game:
Developed by Ubisoft Blue Byte®, the renowned studio behind popular PC game series such as The Settlers® and Anno, in collaboration with Sproing, Silent Hunter Online promises players a realistic, constantly evolving submarine simulation unlike any other. The game takes full advantage of Adobe Flash® Player 11 technology to bring stunning 3D graphics to browsers.

Silent Hunter Online sees the return of the large array of historically accurate submarines that made the franchise famous, and invites players to experience them online in new ways. At the heart of the game is “the Battle of the Atlantic”, an innovative dynamic campaign in which individual successes impact all other players through asynchronous gameplay. Also, for the first time in the Silent Hunter series, players will be able to play every mission of the campaign in co-op.

Of all the years and countless hours of playing the Silent Hunter series, I still cannot believe this sh@t. This isn't acceptable Ubisoft! All the hours us, your loyal fans, Captains all over the world have played Silent Hunter. And this is how they thank us? Giving us a Flash Game sequel MMO free to play whatever the f^#& you want to call it. No!
I play Silent Hunter 3, 4, and 5. So many times I've logged in and pressed the "Multiplayer" button and hoped for a second that maybe, maybe someone out there would be online to play along. But no. So I went alone into the great blue yonder, just me and my crew. My own Wolfpack. I always thought, well maybe there would be another sequel and they will promote it more and then more people would play. I kept hope alive and my crew did too.
Through the storms and trials of the great sea we battled. Sometimes until the early dawn hours. So many mods the fans have created and we the players downloaded. Reading through forums over at Subsim for so many years. When it was snowing, too hot or too cold to go outside, our wives and girlfriends in their moods, no other game could take us to another time like the Silent Hunter series. The cold dark waves of the sea calling to us like a distant memory. We ventured forth in our iron and steel machines to quell the uprising of the enemies and turn the tides of war.
So many nights we could have gone out and enjoyed life's pleasures. But no, we chose to play one of the few games in which we, your fans, your Captains, were in control. There was nothing really like it out there. Your own submarine, missions to accomplish, thousands of miles to explore. The great unknown over the horizon. The seagulls which kept us company out there in the darkness. What lay ahead for my crew. The battles to fight in the seas of Midway. Silent Hunter 5 was a hope, a dream that maybe the series had a new vision.
Sure there were some bugs and sometimes the eyeballs my crew were missing, or a ship did cartwheels and shot up into the sky after if was destroyed. That was the beauty of the game. The series was going in the right direction. More user control, more detailed and expansive environments. Awesome graphics and sounds. We, the fans kept hope alive.
But no, you come up with this bullsh!t "news" and expect us to accept it. This is how I feel about the situation:
