yes !!!!! I think it was referring to the PC, which is what I drive, but also the X-box same date. Anyway, really cool to finally start seeing actual published dates that are in the same general time frame which means maybe it's for real.:thumb:

Was this posted somewhere? - sry if it was

# Combined Real-Time Strategy, Flight, and Naval Action Gameplay: Command the air, sea, and sub forces. Launch full-scale attacks and at anytime switch to and take full-control of any plane, ship or sub. You command, fly the attack, fire the battleship's 15-inch guns, and submerge the mini-sub anyway you choose throughout the battle.
# Two Massive Campaigns: 28 full-scale battles across two unique campaigns. The historic American campaign begins after Midway and goes to Guadalcanal, Leyte, Iwo Jima, Okinawa, and more. The "what if" Japanese campaign begins at Pearl Harbor and goes to the Java Sea, Port Moresby, Midway, and beyond.
# 100 War Machines: Fighters, bombers, carriers, battleships, cruisers, destroyers, subs, mini-subs and more. 17 US planes including the new Corsair fighters and Curtis Helldivers, and 20 Japanese planes including the Mitsubishi J2M Raiden (Thunderbolt), and the night-fighting Nakajima J1N1 Gekko.
# Innovative Online Multiplayer Battles: Huge multi-unit battles for up to eight players (four on each side) on Games For Windows LIVE. The largest battle involves over 100 units. Includes five all-new online gameplay modes: Island capture, Duel, Siege, Escort, and Competitive.

Battlestations: Pacific is the immense sequel to the critically acclaimed "Battlestations: Midway." The innovative franchise returns to complete the entire Pacific War with two massive single-player campaigns, the historically based US campaign and a historically possible Japanese campaign. Players will experience one war through two epic sagas to be a part of history or change it. Commanding the US Fleet, players relive the grandest and most critical naval battles of the Pacific War and for the first time, as the Japanese, players lead the IJN Fleet to a completely different ending to the war.

No other game delivers the challenge of an RTS with the rush of real-time WWII flight and naval warfare. Players need intelligence and expertise to plan their moves in order to remain one step ahead of the opponent. The players command both strategy and action to anticipate every opponent move and turn the tide of war. Twice the size of the original, the sequel includes 28 major battles, 100 units including 21 new units, five new innovative multi-player modes across eight new multi-player maps, and new features which include island capture, kamikaze attacks, and an improved easy-to-use interface.

Let's just hope this game doesn't get pushed back too far. When people are looking forward to a game and then it just keeps getting pushed back they tend to move on to other things.

In my eyes, the game isn't gonna be released until Eidos themselves give a release date. Guesses, while fun, are kind of insubstantial.

It's funny that some people believes that just because they open a new topic things are going to clear up. We have several other topics discussing the release date - without any tangible results.

Creating more and more topics for the same discussion is a very bad thing as it takes the weight away from the subject. If we could have one topic dealing with this, everybody coming here being inteligent enough to go there and post comments that would show some community strength.

Until then... Like pissing in the wind... ...not good...

I have said it before and I will say it again. No specific release date has been announced. When it does it will get posted on these boards. It3llig3nc3 is correct and we do not need multiple threads in regards to a release date so I will close this thread.

I have also renamed the release date thread to make it easier to find. It is found here: http://forums.eidosgames.com/showthread.php?t=83799
