Nope...less than one based on the announcement date...


This would be the first time in computer game history where a project was launched at or after the official announcement. :)

I could imagine Eugen hat lots of ideas from the time they made WEE as well as the first responses from community. That's basically the first step of development - gathering ideas. And that's, as said, usually done before a game is announced.

I think he means that it's a common practice to be already working on the next game before the current is even launched. This has to do with specifics of development life cycle, new ideas cannot go into the current game build after a certain point.

There will be a Wargame every year? just like CoD? I think that's lame. I don't even played that much of ALB and they want to kill this game already.

Red Dragon should be a DLC, not a new game. I don't even know why do a new game. Wait one more year. W: EE had 5 DLCs, this, only one. That's lame.

No one knows if DR is a dlc or stand alone game, or if it even exist. People just saw rumors on Facebook and assumed.

I'm sure the game will be released in 2015 or 2016. It took Eugen 2 years to make alb, so I doubt if its a game that it'll be released in 2014.




It's a standalone game, a sequel


After EE was released, Eugen said they were working on 2 games. One was ALB, the other was RD. It's been in development for a while, and it will be another 6 months before it's released.
A brilliant plan from the dirtiest euro-hippie: get US players to pay me for a game that I then show them how much their military sucks so I can feel better about being a communist.

Engine upgrades. The main reason to buy it. But tbh, I'd buy anything these guys are throwing out. Their game is in the "special" (borderline unique) category of RTS. The one-of-a-kind type of games that pop up once every half-a decade or so. I doubt any competitor will pop-up anytime soon (because this game isn't popular enough).

Yeah, you don't buy games from Eugen because of the game, you buy because of their community support and to keep them alive. Same as it was for Paradox when they were small.

East has no Power against West.

Only 4 Factions and mostly of them are using the Same Tactic while West can change it whenever they want.

If you dont Play Sojwets it´s very hard.

Some say WG3 was in the works parallel to WG2, but at lower key and mostly research based. Some say...

A covering menu to enable access to each of the Wargames would be a good thing.

It's a 17lbr, not a 76.2mm.
