Default Why does 1C take so long with their games?!

Well?! The first movies of CLOD were in 2005 of the moving parts in the spit cockpit...
So CLOD was in development for a looooong time! And the end result we all know. The reason we have recieved little support for CLOD except for the last 6 weeks is that they have been working hard with the sequel... Well for the sequel they need to create a new landscape and some new planes and weather... Should this take 3 years?! 2011-2013... Isnt thay was is normally required to create a game from scratch?!

This is not whining but just some questions i have!

Depends on how detailed a game is I think. More important there is not enough good sim programmers in Moscow. No one wants to move here and learn Russian ) Luthier mentioned they are constantly looking for people and can not find anyone. Plus management mistakes that Oleg admitted.

There is a lot more to a sim of this level than a typical fps the models are extremely detailed, the research required to fully generate even a single cockpit takes a long time.

Wish they would hurry up and make a 190 I still hope that it might arrive in a patch for the next game but we will probably only see it in the one after next

From what I understand the sequel should not take as long.With Clod they started from scratch.Building the game and graphics engines.The sequel will use these engines so they have quite a head start.

Just my personal opinion.Not based on any fact or crystal ball.Since they are not starting the alpha until next year I do not expect to see the sequel before Christmas 2013.(provided we make it past December,21,2012)

Yes and with quite a head start it should take what? A year if ur whole team works on it?! I Have no idea... But 2011 is already gone... 2012 almost gone that is, say 20months already and... Since the told us for a ca 15-16 months already that almost the whole team is busy wth the sequel...
I heard from unofficial sources summer 2013 for the sequel...

It was 2 years Il2 to forgotten battles then also to pacific fighter and two years again to 1946.

New sequel each two years. But that was the good old days with Oleg in charge.

Now it is a year since unofficial announce of sequel, it goes alpha maybe in 2013, still no official announce, no profit coming from CoD we are told...

If we ever see this sequel, it is not before 2014.
