Default Silent Hunter 5 Announced for Q1/09 says Subsim news?

More news and updates can be found in





.

Just noticed that the subsim news page has an update listed for SH5, is this correct...(I'd like to think so!)

"Silent Hunter 5, Ubisoft, All new code, Q1 09 Underway"

Silent Hunter 5 Announced, it's official. Details here.

New update added, cuz Google returns this page for SH5 searches. --Neal

Too soon. Big mistake. If it's a quantum leap ahead nobody's equipment will run it. If it is not, it will fail to be a compelling purchase. If the first case I will begin scanning eBay for a poor victim who can't run it. If the second, I'm afraid the thing will die on the vine. I just can't imagine anything good coming out of a 1st quarter 2009 release of a new submarine simulation.

That being said, I am ALWAYS prepared to be pleasantly surprised.

"All new code" and a tentative Q1 09 release date, doesn't exactly sound like a good combination if you ask me. :hmm:

Well first off there's the FPS cash cow of the subsim world, U-boats, but that has already been done.

The red-headed subsim stepchild (pacific theater) was just done.
And as much as I'd like to command an I-Boat or serve in the queens navy pre 1945, these would likely attract an even smaller audience than the US fleet boats.

So my moneys on either some cold war nuke boat sim, or preferably a post WWII, pre nuke boat sim, perhaps something centering around the Korea war.

Either that or some WWI U-Boat sim.


Or the devs could have really gone out on a limb and went for..........

Sounds plausible to me. I'm sure we all know how release dates tend to be very optimistic.

I would love WW2 game for the Picific and atlanic, and who knows they might even include British/Japanease subs. I think they also could put a WW1 campagine is. ( to make every pre 1945 Sub simmer happy.) I dont think it will be a Cold war/ Nuke boat game there is realy not enough info to make one that is realistic cause the governments want to keep that stuff secret. But as I said we will see.

Has anyone asked Neal about this? I'm sure this was a joke.
