Update from John Tiller's site means good wargaming ahead

Man all this drama and exciting turn of events in the PC Wargaming world has really kept me busy this past two weeks. I haven't had this much wargaming news since Lock and Loaded was announced for the PC. We should be seeing that title...any...day...now....I ....think.

Ah well never mind. Ok so over on John Tiller's site he has posted a new message to the fans which I am sure somewhere someone will copy and paste and take it to mean all he cares about is getting your money. Whatever. All I care about is this statement right here:
Right now we have over 11 games in active development at various stages of completion and we will bring those to you just as soon as they reach the high level of quality you have come to expect of our products

Awesome. And all digital downloads so no snail mail for me.

Here is the entire post:
Thanks again for making our first release such a huge success. Sales of Kharkov '43 continue to set multiple performance milestones for the first month even in the short time it has been released. The team and I are greatly enthusiastic about our future efforts at this point.

Our second release, a modern Squad Battles game, is finished and ready to be released in the near future. Following that, we plan a flurry of new games in multiple areas to bring a wide variety of offerings to the store. Right now we have over 11 games in active development at various stages of completion and we will bring those to you just as soon as they reach the high level of quality you have come to expect of our products. And we have other games in development over the entire range of areas so that a total of 47 games are either being actively worked on or are designed and waiting on a scenario designer to bring them to completion. Plus there are over 7 game concepts that we are working on in more than 3 new game areas. And expect three surprises next year that the team is working on including a new game format that should prove to be very popular. Finally we are also doing investigations into smartphone development as an adjunct to our PC games.

Thanks for providing us the opportunity to develop such a wide variety of games. The team and I have such strong interests in military history and its representation that it is gratifying to see that you feel the same way. Be sure to let us know what your interests are because regardless of what that might be, I'll bet there is someone in our team with that same interest who would really like to hear from you.

Looks like good times for the wargamer up ahead. Panzer Korps soon from Slitherine, just had War in the East come out, a Battlefield Academy expansion soon and now this good news.
