Word comes through from 1C that the Russian publisher is teaming up with 777 Studios, creators of the Rise of Flight series, to form 1C Game Studios. This new developer's first project will be IL-2 Sturmovik: Battle of Stalingrad, the next game in the highly regarded (well, except for Cliffs of Dover) series of World War 2 flight sims.
