Sorry I've been a bit quiet today, unfortunately the good news I was expecting to share isn't quite here yet.
With typical timing, right after I posted that note, being pretty sure that we would be gold within a couple of days, two issues were found in the random campaigns that needed addressing before release. Unfortunately this is an iterative process and the campaigns are testing-intensive. The fixes were made in 24 hours, but necessitated another testing cycle to make sure they are working fine before we can consider calling this gold.
So this release has had one of the longer "almost gold" periods, but it's all good as long as it results in a better game as the end product once you all get your hands on it. We are committed to making sure we are happy with it before we hand it off to you. Having worked on it as long as we have, while we are extremely impatient to release it, we are also dedicated to getting as close to perfect as we can.
I expect the testing will carry us through the weekend at this point, so hopefully I will have good news for you early next week. My expectation is that once we "go gold" it will be only 2-3 days later that you'll be able to buy Panzer Command: Kharkov in our online store. As I said before, the manuals are already printed, boxes ready, etc. so it will not be delayed any further on that side once we sign off on the final master.
Thanks for your patience with our occasional release hiccups, it's all in an effort to give you a better game.
