"The player will experience all the action and excitement of modern air combat, from intense dog fighting to tactical strikes," said Ubisoft Bucharest director Sebastien Delen. The game will give players the chance to be top guns in a sometime-in-the-future setting, defending America against a power-hungry group of mercenaries.
Ubisoft Bucharest's experience with the Blazing Angels series of flight combat sims makes the studio a natural choice for the project, and the game will of course support online multiplayer dogfighting. Another recent addition to the Clancy clan of games is Tom Clancy's EndWar, a real-time strategy game from Ubisoft Shanghai set to hit PC, PlayStation 3, and Xbox 360 early next year.
There's irony for you: a Tom Clancy game developed in communist China.
Not familiar with Blazing Angels, but it would be nice to see Ubisoft Bucharest deliver a true combat flight sim and not just another arcade shoot 'em up.
I concur. It seems the market might be inching back towards simulators with this and the new MechWarrior mod *crosses fingers*
