Default DCS: Supercarrier Update for 19 March 2020

Dear valued clients,

We earlier stated that DCS: Supercarrier would be available to play in early access by Q1 2020. However, we will need to postpone the early access release to 15 April 2020 in order to complete the “Stay at Home” Sale. We do not launch large products during an ongoing sale event.

This also gives us more time to complete some needed tasks before the early access release. To be as transparent as possible, we are sharing the DCS: Supercarrier task list to complete before its release:

Will this be worked on inline with syncing the rest of multi player in DCS, We all know how bad the warping and Dysnc is. More info would be cool on this.

Using gazelle AND when Multi crew UH-1 released by mistake UH-1 showed same problems.

Expected lack of Tomcat integration at EA release after the animations were already shown to work on the deck reaffirms my choice to save my money for the meantime.

I appreciate the update. See you when it works.

To be clear, we are not saying that the Tomcat will not be compatible at Super Carrier EA launch, we will do our very best with HB to have at least limited functionality.

Thanks,
Matt

It already has 4 years of delay, those few months won't make a big difference, will they?
