Next major update - Rumor Round-Up and Discussion


Welcome to the War Thunder - Rumor Round-Up and Discussion thread!

 

Here you can discuss everything related to the new update - such as rumors and other related discussions.

 

Please avoid these types of discussions:

 

-Wish listing there's a separate thread for that  here

-Specifics of vehicle specs like armour, ammo, guns, data sheets you can make a thread  here

-Bug reports you can make a thread  here

 

Not avoiding these discussions will result in your post hidden by a moderator.

 

Please use the  New Power update thread to discuss Update "New Power". Complaining here won't solve anything. 

FAQ

 

Q: What is this thread about?

A:  This thread is about the upcoming patch  and future content.

 

Q: Will you add...?

A: No. We are no developers, just nosy players.

 

Q: Why isn't [vehicle] on the list?

A: Either because there is no evidence that this vehicle will be added, or because no one told me that there is such evidence.

 

Q: Why is [vehicle/feature] on the Denied list?

A: Because said feature or vehicle was denied by Gaijin developers or their representatives at some point in the past.

 

Q: Where did my post go?

A: Off-Topic comments will often be hidden (not deleted) to keep this thread readable and on topic. No need to be alarmed or comment on the disappearing post(s), if concerned then PM Forum Moderators or Seniors.

 

Q: When will we get the patch?

A: Currently our best guess is June of 2021.

 

Q: What if I don't want to read all these pages to find out what will come?

A: Read the OP. I and moderators will frequently update it with new information.

I would be happier with the Tornado

we should get the alpha jet first. would make more sense to put the tornado in tier 7 after a tier 6 alpha jet after the G.91 R/3

After this update we might see an event !!

 

We will see an event anyway, with the D-Day anniversary on Sunday.

 

However, if the previous patches are something to go by, we might have something on Twitch either this or next weekend with decals and/or a Twitch Drop vehicle.

 

@gszabi99_HUN Any clues of a Twitch Drop vehicle in the files?
