LONDON, UK (November 5, 2004) - GMX Media and Shockwave Productions have announced they have decided to produce a new WWII air combat game entitled, “Battle of Britain: Wings of Victory!” Earlier this year, GMX Media acquired rights to the former and critically acclaimed “Rowan’s Battle of Britain.” Shockwave Productions is developing the new title, which is scheduled for release in early 2005.
"With the huge success of Firepower Shockwave were the obvious choice for the development of Battle of Britain: Wings of Victory, we are glad to be working with the great guys at Shockwave again.” commented COO for GMX Media, Eugene Perry. “The game is looking fantastic, we look forward to showing it to the public.”
“The original game from Rowan released in 2001 is still the most complete and authentic reproduction of the Battle of Britain ever done. Battle of Britain ‘Wings of Victory’ is building on this strong foundation to create something truly special. Every member of the team brings passion to their work and it shows in the quality of the game,” said Scott Gentile of Shockwave Production Inc.
Release Date: February 2005!
