Hello folks. For those who are wondering if Petroglyph will ever release the so promised official modding tools for Universe At War, the rumours says that these tools are being tested by Microsoft. The words below were posted in the Petroglyph forums by SCC-PG some days ago. Since they don't throw us any news, we have to digg them up. This is the closest we may know about it.


Well there is certainly some interesting speculation on how we spend our time. I'll try to give some updates.

We always have more progress on UaW fixes, features, and tools than can be immediately released. As you know, the certification process for that product is rather tedious and releases are subject to the interests of our partners. We will keep up the good fight and are always spending resources on that franchise. We do have a nice package prepared, which includes many things you've been asking for, but I don't know when it will be published. Sorry for that tease, but I figured some info was better than none.

Many at Petroglyph read your posts, but we're currently slow to comment mostly because we can't yet discuss what we're working on for trade secret or marketing reasons. Please feel free to speculate based on job postings and press releases, but otherwise, take anything you hear with a grain of salt--even if it comes from a trusted source. We have many irons in the fire and several very cool products in various stages of development; nobody external yet knows everything we've got cooking. Some projects are further along than you might guess and we hope to be the first to provide several new kinds of gameplay. I'm eagerly looking forward to the day we can announce our next project, but that may be a few weeks off.




While that quote isn't clear about anything, it is better than nothing. Other non-official sources also mentioned the mod kit being on Microsoft for testing. So, perharps, there is a light in the end of the tunnel, although it is hard to understand why Petroglyph is being so secretive about this. This silence is killing the community.
