1C Game Studios annonce aujourd'hui que IL-2 Sturmovik : Battle of Stalingrad sera publié en septembre 2014, sans préciser la date. Mais avant cela, le studio russe lancera une béta test publique cet été.
Albert Zhiltsov, producteur de IL-2 Sturmovik: Battle of Stalingrad déclare : “Our team is approaching a very important stage of development – we’re almost at the finish line. Before this point we only had a draft, a rough version with basic elements of gameplay. By the time the beta starts we should have the majority of content ready, it will be a full-fledged game at that point,” et poursuit : “We plan to dedicate the remaining months to optimization and bug fixing. The game has been in the early access stage since November 2013. This spring we opened up access 24/7 and we have been producing weekly updates for the past several months, which means releasing a new game every seven days. This is not the most efficient option for a development team, but this gives us a unique and valuable opportunity to get feedback from users before the game hits stores.”
