Yes, we are still on track to release by the end of this month! Last week we created a test version of the DCS World 2.5.0 branch and we and our testers are hammering away on it. DCS World 2.5.0 will be released as an update to the Open Beta on 31 January 2018, and the 2.5.0 Open Beta installer will be available the next day. We are staggering these to avoid overloading our file servers.
The 2.5.0 “Release” version will launch a week or two later, depending on how the Open Beta release goes.
The Steam version will come a week after the 2.5.0 Release version is launched.
In parallel, we are also preparing the final update for DCS World 1.5.8. This will continue 1.5.8’s availability, but it will be unsupported following the release of DCS World 2.5.
You can find a detailed description of the DCS World 2.5.0 launch process on the DCS forum.
From today onwards and until the end of February 2018 we will maintain the current pricing and discounts levels for all DCS modules. Thereafter, prices will return to their original recommended levels.
