Battle of Britain Declared (Again)

Ubi Soft Takes to the Skies in the Battle of Britain (thanks Frans) is the press release announcing still another flying combat game based on the World War II conflict Churchill called the RAF's "finest hour." This WW2 combat flight simulator is to be created by 1C: Maddox Games (IL-2 Sturmovik), and the announcement also includes word of plans for an IL-2: Forgotten Battles expansion. Here's a bit on Battle of Britain, not to be confused with LucasArts' Their Finest Hour: The Battle Of Britain (1989), Talonsoft's turn-based BoB game (1999), Rowan's Battle of Britain (Nov 2000), WWII: the Battle of Britain 1940 (due this month from iEntertainment), or many other similarly named projects: "The Battle of Britain will be packed with even more historical realism, and will utilize a new engine, a dynamic campaign system and new weather effects. The game will take place in 1940 during the infamous "Battle of Britain", between England, Germany and Italy, and it will allow players to fly for the British, German or Italian air force."

One thing that made IL2 so unique was it's unexplored theater or war. I was personally looking forward to Africa or maybe the Mediterranean.

Yet another BoB really seems ho hum to me, but I guess it all comes down to paying the bills. Good luck to them.
