This is just a quick note to say that the Steam release of Combat Mission: Shock Force 2, which was planned to drop later today, has been delayed. Slitherine/Matrix just sent out a news blast saying that the game is still stuck in the Steam approval queue. All games that want to release on Steam need to wait for final review & approval from Valve before they can launch.
The fact that it hasn’t happened yet the morning of release is worrying, but something we’ve heard happen before.
This is the only part of the process where Valve has complete control and there’s nothing Battlefront nor Slitherine/Matrix can do to hasten the process. In order to play it safe and give everything enough time, Combat Mission: Shock Force 2‘s Steam release date has been pushed back to September 1st, 2020.
Hopefully it’ll have cleared the review queue by then. It’s entirely possible it’ll still clear today, but I doubt Slitherine will move the date forward again to avoid confusion. We’ll update this story if we hear anything else.
