I had checked their website and forums, and I'm really surprised by how they will repeatedly mention Close Combat and Graviteams and systematically omit Combat Mission.
I mean Close Combat at this point is still running a basically a two decades old engine (we'll see when that next 3D iteration comes out) with a lot of holes in it, and while Graviteams has done a smashing job, it's still not quite there yet.
So despite all its quirks and an engine that is also getting a bit dated, you would think Battlefront's Combat Mission is the one to beat. Especially as that series already has an applauded episode based in Italy (Forteress Italy, its extension, Gustav Line, and a second extension is due this year).
Well, TAC's pictures look pretty, and it promises everything every WWII tactical sim game has always promised, so obviously it'll come short, but it'll be nice to see new blood coming to this particular scene.
