Anything said is pure speculation. It might be that only Oleg has a decent idea of the release date. February sounds too soon, there is no dedicated website for the game that I have seen. Late 2011 sounds too late given that SoW development is a resource and money drain on someone.

We saw a rather "flyable" version of SoW at the Russian show. That says that most of the programming is done and they are optimizing and doing finishing touches (which will continue through release anyway). My PURE guess is mid 2011.

The present "delays" probably do have a lot to do with the publisher. They have their own priorities too.

My question is, "why have a publisher". At least a big name publisher? Since this is a niche game, a small publisher may be a much better option in that it will take less of the profit away from Oleg. Or they could self publish or create their own little company to do it and keep a much larger percentage of the profit.

Plus, look at the console and hand held apps market. I know that another flight sim is making most of its' profits off of hand held apps. And that developer has also announced a delay in their new release. I could see SoW having some sort of handheld app released in conjunction with or shortly after the PC game is released.

Lots of stuff comes up at the end, after development is mostly done. I've been through it on a specialized bit of software and this time is the most tense and anxious.

I could also see a number of pre-release reviews getting published. when we see those along with a web site, we'll be close.....I think. But what do any of us know? lol

So let's hope the optimists are right!

Actually so far he has a zero percentage success rate. He said the sim wouldn't come out until 2009 and he was wrong. He also said it wouldn't come out until 2010 and he was wrong. I do think he will be right about 2011, but wrong about 2012. He has got get it right once, but that doesn't make him well informed. LOL

I think if we had a prognostication of 2011 that might be spot on. LOL

this seems to be a relatively new interview:

-Oleg, with the last of our conversation with you was 10 months. At that point, you're talking about roughly 60 per cent readiness "Battle of Britain". What is that percentage today?

Beta? So our Aussie member could be right about already having one.
