Tom Clancy's Air Combat Announced

Ubisoft announces Tom Clancy's Air Combat, describing this as a franchise, rather than a game, saying the "brand will launch in 2008" for PCs and consoles, offering aerial combat, and what they're hoping will be "an instant online multiplayer hit." Here's word:
Ubisoft Takes To The Skies With New Tom Clancy Air Combat Brand

Chertsey, England – September 25, 2007 – Ubisoft, one of the world’s largest video game publishers, announced the creation of a new Tom Clancy franchise being developed by Ubisoft’s Bucharest studio for next generation consoles and PC. The first air combat game taking place in Tom Clancy’s universe, the brand will launch in 2008.

“Ubisoft has an unrivalled track record of creating and sustaining new brands,” said Serge Hascoet, chief creative officer at Ubisoft. “Our commitment to refreshing our catalogue with regular introduction of new IPs is what keeps gamers coming back for more. With this new brand we’re redefining the aerial combat genre and extending the Tom Clancy universe to deliver a compelling new action titles to next-generation gamers.”

Set in the near future, the game imagines a world where a private military force has accumulated such power that it attacks the USA. Thrust into the cockpits of incredibly powerful and technologically advanced jet fighters, gamers will benefit from hi-tech piloting assistance, providing comfort, security and enhanced perception. As players gain skills and confidence, they will be able to shed the assistance. But before choosing performance over security, they’ll have to weigh the risks carefully.

“We are confident that this new brand will become the new benchmark for flight combat games and will be, like other Tom Clancy based games, an instant online multiplayer hit,” says Sebastien Delen, managing director of Ubisoft’s Bucharest studio. “The player will experience all the action and excitement of modern air combat, from intense dog fighting to tactical strikes.”

Wait, a Tom Clancy game that *doesn't* involve Sam Fisher or Team Rainbow?

Wait a sec, 'Instant Online Multiplayer Hit'? bah...

Unfortunately, to address balance issues between PC gamers and console gamers, PC gamers will only be allowed to use the keyboard to control their planes.

"intense dog fighting"....I'm not a modern air combat expert. So maybe someone else can clue me in...how much dogfighting is done with modern jets? Don't they usually kill each other at long range?

Yes, kills at beyond visual range with advance stealthy radars.

This is "modern" air combat game, so how does one stealth fighter frag another stealth fighter at mach 2+?

Nope, the US Airforce still teaches INTENSE dogfighting regime for its pilots, hopefully it would'nt come to a dogfight but if it did they are extremely well trained.

They don't use the word "sim" anywhere in this press release, so guess we should pretty much expect an arcade flying camera.

Nope, the US Airforce still teaches INTENSE dogfighting regime for its pilots, hopefully it would'nt come to a dogfight but if it did they are extremely well trained.

I'd much rather that my country teach INTENSE math, science, and history to its grade school students, but that's just me.

I always thought Red Storm studios would be a good choice to do a Mechwarrior game.

Where was the Navy when rockets were flying over my head when I was fixing our helicopters? Or when I was bleaching the cabin to cleanse it from the blood and guts of our dead troops? Sitting out on a boat in the Mediterranean or in the Persian Gulf, I'd imagine. Don't fucking call me the Chairforce again.

By the way, the Navy flies shitty planes maintained by half-assed mechanics. No joke there.

Are you...are you freakin' kidding?? The Chinese military would fall to the US military pretty quickly in an all-out brawl. Don't speak of things of which you know nothing.

Another f'n port from UBI that will screw over PC gamers.
UBI should just get out of PC game development because they don't have devs capable of making games for the PC and they really don't give a darn. They have proved this over and over again based on all of their PC releases over the last 2 years!!

Give it up UBI!!!

Is this supposed to be some sort of vague political statement, or some vague making fun of the Air Force statement with the whole grade school comment?

Whatever it is, it's dumb.
