is being worked on by 1C Game Studios. The new outfit is not to be confused with related publisher 1C Company, who've joined up with Rise of Flight: The First Great Air War developer 777 Studio to form a new game development outfit. Previous series games were developed by 1C: Maddox Games.
Reasons for the change in development are unknown, but 1C seems to appreciate 777's expertise, so it can be speculated they believe this will make a great series greater.
Battle of Stalingrad will launch in early 2014, after which point additional content, features, and theaters will release as time goes on.
