MMORPG.com has just completed a new interview with Chris "Mo" Sherland - the Executive Producer for World War II Online. There were some great questions asked by Reed Hubbard (Koltrane) along with many members of our community. A preview is below:
||World War II Online is coming up on its fourth anniversary. How pleased is the development team with the game thus far? |
||Boy you cut to the chase eh? That is actually a tough one to answer, but I know I speak for the whole team when I say we are very very proud of WWIIOL, and at the same time we are never satisfied with where it is, and we are always eager to get the next update out. We’re addicted to the development in a big way, and WWIIOL has lots of dreams left to realize. |
||We understand that the game will be reintroduced to store shelves this year. Discuss the plans for this and what it means to the game. For example, will we see some of the other theaters (like North Africa) that were originally planned for WWIIOL? |
||Well it means everything really. We have not had a box on the shelves in 3 years, and it has simply limited the growth of the game and the studio. Our next release is a reintroduction to the retail market and the first in a series that will see new theaters and countries added to the WWIIOL service. This first release is titled “Beyond Blitzkrieg” and covers the war in Europe from 1940 through 1943. We will most likely release a “booster” pack taking the ETO through 1945 and adding the US and Italian forces. At that point we’ll be preparing the second major release that will feature North Africa. |
