Well, it's been an awfully long time since Tripwire got given the Unreal 3 engine, and over the years theres been alot of discussion on it, but i think we can pin down a release date for it.

Now Tripwire have been careful to release absolutely no information on their new project.

Any game needs to build up a certain amount of hype to sell well. Now seeing as Tripwire have hired quite alot of people, and have all that prize money, im guessing that they're not just going to surprise us all and announce the game 1 week before release as it would be commercial suicide, although that would be cool to see.



So, heres my prediction.

spring 2009 release with the possibility of news/info on their new project in spring 2008.

It's not going to be RO2. From everything the devs have said trying to cover up their next game title, I guarantee that it's going to be a new IP... the closest I can see the next game coming to RO is essentially IL-2... but tanks!

Hey, maybe Tripwire have been in comm's with Oleg Maddox and they are in kahootz. Maybe they are going to look at releasing compatable games like the old Silent Hunter and Destroyer Command. :eek:

Most likely not, but I haven't heard a good rumour in quite a while. So this one will have to do in the mean time :D

Now if you can all help me spread this rumour, we can create havoc amongst the whiners and ney-sayers, as well as mis lead the innocent :cool::D:D:D

I'm confused..... really, i am sure whatever TW is doing it will be worth the wait. I thought i could go without RO, I am still addicted.

I heard they are keeping the same high level of realism, but are moving the action away from the front line. RO2 - Tax Assessor will allow players to win the war from behind a desk. Remember, war is hell, and moving the P-143 iron works requisition order from your in tray to your out tray without a cursor is a job that will take plenty of practice.

But tankers need not despair, driving the tea trolley with the wonky wheel is a skill that will test even the most experieced driver. But be careful, TKs are easy to rack up. If you spill tea over a team mates ISO 216 troop movement order form in triplicate, you won't make many new friends.

TWI probably will go to Ibiza and spend all the profit, leaving us thinking they're making a new game.

Agreed. And when they're outta money, they'll go "1944 Game" style. Taking money for "promised betas" and games that don't exist.

I sincerely hope it doesnt have much to do with tanks. I mean, you drive. You stop. You fire. You drive left a little. You drive right a little. You stop. You fire. *YAAAWWWN*

Well to bypass the censor on bad words i say.

Neuk Hypes and Zuig all companies who try to sell on hypes and badass
trailers with goofy gameplay and offer less for more money.
And Poep for all companies trying to please all and especcially their wallet
and release games for Wii, XBox, PS3, PSP and o yeah people still play on PC's so let's do a port for them.

I only hope they make a good game with Online MP in mind.

You think they are making a tank sim? That would shock me as they have shown mostly contempt and vast swaths of dead silence toward hardcore sim/realism guys. Maybe they just have an extremely unorthodox way of showing solidarity.

no, I just said that that's the closest thing I see the next game to being to Red Orchestra. Most likely it's not going to be it but that's likely the closest option for the rumor mill.

Mmm, yeah I'm not much concerned what their next game is. All I know is that they have left their current one in a flawed state and it appears that the complaint booth is closed. What gets me is all the great ideas they have discarded despite overwhelming demand by players (not just the few lunatic sim fringe like me). I mean why are the semiauto rifles still incapable of using regular stripper clips after all this time? Why is the auto weapon pickup switch still the fumbling juggle fest that it is? Things like that that are so fundamental yet are not addressed really leaves me doubting their judgement for this game and the next.

Ooooh, creative post Drecks :D can I translate?

In a way you're right. If a product is good (games, music, movies whatever) it will most likely sell. However, if TW's next game will be a multiplayer game, they need one very important thing: a solid player base. And the bigger the hype for a multiplayer game, the bigger the player base.

TW's next game doesn't need a huge media campaign ala Call of Duty 4 or something (because it will only attract asshats), but they definitely need to promote their game if they want a solid player base. Trailers, interviews, a neat looking website etc. Hype is not a bad thing if a game is so good it actually deserves the hype, imo.

First quarter of 2009 is a realistic date, I think.

Well i stated it a little overdone.

But imo there is a big difference between hypes and decent advertising
where it shows what you get instead of polished trailers and terific stories
about the importancy of Non Lineair Gameplay and super AI and all other
things promised in the candybox.

And your right that what needed is a bigger playerbase.
