For those unfamiliar with the franchise, this is a strategy game in which tanks and fighter jets are legion. The company has therefore deemed it healthier not to go out of the game in connection with war and the conquest of territory by force even though millions of inhabitants are facing a much more serious real situation at this very moment. For the moment, no other release date has been announced.
