Erik Rutins -> An Update on 2by3's plans for 2020 (11/29/2019 2:46:50 PM)

Hi everyone,

2019 has been a very busy year for 2by3, with two major projects (War in the East 2 and Steel Tigers) in the works and we wanted to give you all a brief update on how things are going and our current expectations for 2020.

Finishing War in the East 2 has top priority for 2by3 and it is expected to be feature complete within the next quarter, which means that a final release date will depend on final testing and polish time, but we expect it will be a 2020 release. Recruitment for testers will ramp up once we reach a feature complete state.

Steel Tigers is the next priority after WITE2 and is already roughly 70% feature complete for our initial feature goals, but it is a complex title and a great deal of work still remains. Steel Tigers is a cooperative project that has included development and engine support from Matrix and Slitherine as well.

Steel Tigers will release after WITE2. As it is based on a new engine and not yet feature complete, it's too early to predict a timeframe but we want to allow enough time to finish it properly and also to support WITE2 properly after its release. We do plan to involve the Steel Panthers community in the alpha test once the basic feature set and testing are complete and their feedback will help us greatly in determining the final shape of the game and additional development and the final release timeline.

Best Regards and Happy Thanksgiving,

- Matrix Games and 2by3

ncc1701e -> RE: An Update on 2by3's plans for 2020 (11/29/2019 5:22:26 PM)

Thanks for the update. Do you plan Steel Tigers to be the tactical module for War in the East 2 combat resolutions? [:)]

Take your time to make good and well working games; don't rush out half-baked, partially working crap like Patriot or Mass Effect: Andromeda

War in East I did not purchase as yet. But I am interested in War in the East2. Significant improvements I'm guessing.




Hexagon -> RE: An Update on 2by3's plans for 2020 (12/3/2019 8:47:48 PM)

Well, thanks for the info, better than nothing but words are like tears under the rain [:'(]

Lets see if 2020 is the year or not, surprise releases like the Command new version keep faith ON.

War In Europe, like WITP-AE. Have it cover the ETO, Afrika, and the North Atlantic.

Should I just give you guys access to my bank accounts now? You're going to get all my money, anyway!

[:D][:D]




alkhonji -> RE: An Update on 2by3's plans for 2020 (1/31/2020 12:58:26 PM)

Nice detailed explanation very informative & helpful




Grognerd_INC -> RE: An Update on 2by3's plans for 2020 (1/31/2020 1:57:42 PM)

Since I own War in the East, why would I be interested in War in the East 2? What it going to do that requires a new title?

I think they are going to make it more complicated. And they are adding in that awful air system from WITW.




Zovs -> RE: An Update on 2by3's plans for 2020 (1/31/2020 3:57:59 PM)

Actually the air system for WitW is really not that bad once you get the hang of it.
