Our next game will be War in the West 43-45 which will be the same scale as WitE and will include a more robust air game with the land campaigns and strategic bombing. After that we plan on War in the West 40 (which will include Norway, France, England and the Med, and add a new detailed naval system) and War in the West 41-42 which will focus on the Med. War in the West 43-45 will have campaigns that start in the summer of 43 and the summer of 44, as well as shorter scenarios. We have an alpha map for all of Europe (including the Soviet Union to east of the Urals), North Africa and the Middle East). We plan to use this map to eventually produce a WitE 2.0 which would fit in with the War in the West products and allow us to fill in a complete War in Europe. Of course, this will take many years.

Most of this information has been given out before in various forum posts, but I wanted to post this again to clear things up. I'm sure many of you have questions about the details, but I'd ask you hold those questions and let us focus on development. We'll give you more information in the future as we move along in development and you'll have plenty of time to ask questions.

How detailed will the naval system be likely to be? Are we talking individual ships?

No - the naval system is abstracted. Have a look at the new WitW forum where more detail is posted.

Sorry to be clear I was asking specifically about Joel's comment "After that we plan on War in the West 40 (which will include Norway, France, England and the Med, and add a new detailed naval system)".

Is the answer still - abstracted for this?

Many thanks.

OK now I understand. I honestly don't know what the system will be.

The abstracted WitW 43-45 naval system works because at that stage it was air power that was the critical factor. Obviously the other timeframes require a better naval model just as WitW needed a better air and logistics model beyond that of WitE.

Okay - thanks for the response. I'll keep an eye on this. Have to say that WITW does not appeal too much, but an earlier timeframe - bringing in Norway with WITP type ship detail - would appeal greatly, and as for a proper 1940 Mediterranean game? Well this would send me weak at the knees!!!

Hello, I saw this announcement : http://www.matrixgames.com/news/1554/War.in.the.West.-.Wacht.am.Rhein.AAR

Looks like it will be december 1944 - march 1945?

Anyway if one day you have the whole european theater 1939-45, i can always dream!

Michel.

Mid 43 to 45. This is just an AAR from Bulge to the Rhine scenario.

I would definately buy the entire European theatre project.

Preferably with some "what if" possibilities of prioritizing some research and production.

i would love a Gary grigsby style game that includes the Battle of The Atlantic. Is there any status on a game like this?
