Last Close Combat game using current engine
This sort of implies there is a new engine on the way - or am I taking it the wrong way?
Panzer Corps: Afrika Corps - Q2012
Ooh, this is not far off! :)
Q4 will have Allied Pack
For which campaigns?

"The wording was deliberate"

Nice reply, he could be in government with that answer that actually said neither yes nor no :)

The way I interpret is a deliberate yes, there will be a new engine.

I'm too nice and friendly to fit in with politics at home in Chicago, I am not corrupt enough :)

Today was a half day of announcements due to press, staff and developers arriving throughout the morning. Tomorrow is going to be a fun-filled, exciting day!

My reaction to the list of new titles, while not a pre 20th century gamer much, I do like that the pre 20th century gamer market exists.

I'd be hard pressed to offer you any name of any other company worth the mention to begin with, that deals in non WW2 settings wargames for the electronic mediums available.

And I feel very well served by the combined catalogue of Matrix Games and Slitherine for the 20th century gaming genre.

That's a very ambitious release schedule.

I'm glad to see that Slitherine/Matrix continuing churning out the excellent products.

It shows alot of drive and ambition and speaks to the general good good attitude of the personell and excellent health of the company.

If you guys (Slitherine) ever have an IPO, I will be the 1st in line

I personally would love to see a hypothetical WW 3 release,someday.

That's a good question, but I somehow doubt that you'll be answered now and here.
