It’s always good to see the IL-2 developers talking with the community including on the forums, in some of the interviews that we’ve done here on Stormbirds, and of course on other channels and it is the War Gaming Guru and Rod White who has the latest Q&A with the IL-2 team. Link ahead and a few notes from the interview that you might find interesting.
A good primer on the series
The approach taken by Rod White and the War Gaming Guru YouTube channel is a bit more of a primer on the IL-2 series, it’s history stretching back to 2001, and how both Daniel and Jason have connected to that history over time. It’s a very good interview! For some of you, a lot of this information you already knew but for many of the newer people that we always want to welcome to this community, this might be new and interesting!
The rest of their conversation continues on touching on a little bit of the development process on aircraft for the series (did you know it takes a year from start to finish on an IL-2 aircraft?) and what else might be coming to IL-2 in the future. As usual, Jason and Daniel can’t say too much, but they did have a lot to talk about in terms of their current work. Once again, Jason reiterates that they are hopefully not done with Flying Circus and their WWI content which is always a reassuring thing for me – I’m still hoping for a Vol 2 for Flying Circus.
So, without further delay, go and check out this latest interview and give War Gaming Guru a look!
Update: Part two available
Part two of the same interview series is now available. The second part talks flight models, Tank Crew, and some more general questions too. Have a look!
