To answer the original question: If they can fix the stability issues of the engine and simplify the user interface - Battle of Moscow potentially has a great future - and it will bring CoD with it (as the content will be brought forward).
For one thing, more people will have fast enough PCs by then.
It'll also be moddable at some point (if they keep to the original plan), so we'll see additional Battle of Britain content.
If it fails, we'll see a few arcade games and a half dozen aircraft on the DCS engine... but it'll be a decade before someone attempts a project of that magnitude again.
Does anyone actually still believe in the "complete graphic rewrite" anymore? were 9 months on from the last official patch, 2 beta patches and has anything really changed for the better?
Yes. To the same specifications (ie. they rewrote it the same way as the original was programmed).
Does anyone actually still believe in the "complete graphic rewrite" anymore?..
As B6 said, they don't have any programmers left and finding new ones are nearby impossible.
I'd like to see a reference for this...
