505 prepares first worldwide release

Publisher 505 is set to launch IL-2 Sturmovik: Birds Of Prey worldwide – the firm’s first global release.

The World War II flight sim is the first title from the publisher to hits shelves either side of the Atlantic almost simultaneously, launching in Europe on September 4th and the US on September 15th.

Given that we are only in our fourth year, and already we are operational in the US, UK, France, Italy, Spain, Germany and the Nordic region, and able to bring product of the calibre of IL-2 to market, this is a defining moment for us,” said 505 Games’ MD Ian Howe.

To date, we have enjoyed the success of being a dominant player on the Nintendo systems within Europe, but the launch of IL-2 Sturmovik is the moment when 505 Games comes of age.”
