Micro Prose "Global scale combat simulators"
« on: August 20, 2019, 12:06:38 pm »

https://www.microprose.com/

MicroProse is going to build simulators again -> using outerra as engine! The CEO of TitanIM is involved in the development of the new products.

Contratulations to the outerra team! I hope this opens the door for more resources, to lift this already great engine to the next level.

In outerra's blog, tell who owns TitanIm,,
David Lagettie who in turn bought Microprose in 2018.
David Lagettie (initial founder of Bohemia Interactive BIA) and is currently the owner of the company of Titanim (Australian military simulation company that supports under license to the planetary engine Outerra), although this first game, "Combat Warbirds"/october 2019) that will take off with Bill Stealey (founder in his day of Microprose) and currently owner of Entertainment Network, will use Unreal Engine as an engine.
Although the images are from outerra, it has nothing to do with that microprose game with Entertainment Network.
We hope to hear from you and know if Outerra will be part of a simulator project.
I was wondering ... who can get us out of doubt?

I started flying iEN warbirds in 2000.... I was the only bomber flight leader to get a bomber over the target during 'jet day massacre'...... I was a very active member of the warbirds forum and have actually flown online with Wild Bill... This will go south very quickly unless there's a very strong community involvement that is a partnership of equals between the community and commercial..... So if you're looking for authenticity the community has to be the driver of the content and not these guys.
