From: Penrith, Australia
Yes, I heard about Ian about a year ago, and was quite shocked at the time. I have been buying and playing the SSG games since the original Battlefront came out some time in the 80's, and I sort of got used to SSG always being around. About 6 months ago, possibly a little longer, I read some of the tester posts over at Run5 talking about new Kharkov scenarios being 'almost ready' and how good they were. Nothing but silence since then. I also heard about the new Carriers at War complete supposed to be coming.
However, not long ago, I found this odd thread http://www.matrixgames.com/forums/tm.asp?m=3164845 strange that the most information I have received was given out in such a ridiculous manner. For those who don't want to wade through the silliness in the thread, Erik Rutins chose to share this pearl amongst the rubbish:
'Hi Darkstar One,
Unfortunately we do not have the staff to check every message on every forum, so there are times when patience and persistence are required. Alternately, you can use our Help Desk, where every message is checked and all questions are answered.
Regarding Complete Carriers at War, in my most recent discussion with SSG we are now aiming for 1st Quarter 2013. They are at work on the release and moving it forward. SSG is just Gregor and Roger now and life has thrown them a lot of curve balls over the last couple of years. With CCAW, SSG should be rolling again and there are several more exciting releases we are discussing with them after CCAW is complete.

Really, this, along with more information regarding SSG, should be in a newspost somewhere, along with an interview (if SSG wish to do so at this time), and not buried in a post full of pre teen banter.
In any case, i hope it is true.
