Default IL2: CoD release in the UK??

I see that the Germans and French seem to be able to get in their pre-orders, as do a few other countries, but nothing in the UK from what I can see.

I even went into the Game store and asked for future releases and despite loads of crappy obscure Xbox and PS3 games they didn't even have IL2 CoD in their list!

Does anybody know when this is out in the UK and where it can be ordered?

It was the Battle of BRITAIN - we should be first dammit!!!!

You can pre-order downloadable CloD in the UK, cheapest is £29.99 from Game.co.uk/ No sign of a hardcopy yet. I think I'll probably order the CE from Ubi if one doesn't appear in the next few weeks.

I'd like to think so as they're the publisher!

I'm just going to be patient and see if CoD turns up on amazon uk or play.com in the coming weeks. I would order from Ubi but amazon delivery is so quick in my part of the world. Sorry Osprey I can only suggest that you keep an eye on the forums here.

Their FAQ's specifically state that preorders are not shipped until day of release.

It is a completely silly method to delay release from biggest resellers, just like amazon.co.uk & play.com, thinking that people will be forced to buy the download version from ubi store.
Nevertheless they forget that Jack Sparrow will offer download from the first day as well, therefore there will be time until we can buy the game from the store we prefer.
Their silly method just risks that people who get their copy for Jack, won't bother getting it from another store later. Their risk. Personally I will buy the boxed version whenever it is available in a known store and will be playing the game from day 1.

No, you went for super express delivery, which is 1 to 3 days for an additional cost of £8.45. If I'm paying nearly 20% of the item cost for delivery it had better be next day guaranteed which super express is not, in fact it can still be within the delivery timescale and be later than the free standard delivery option.
