Another key IP left in limbo after Activision’s merger with Vivendi Games was Massive Entertainment’s World in Conflict, one of the most highly regarded real-time strategy games in recent memory. In the wake of the merger, Massive’s Soviet Assault expansion pack to WiC was feared to be in jeopardy, but thankfully late last year Ubisoft stepped in and acquired the talented Swedish dev studio and work continued on the add-on. Now there’s finally a release date in sight.

Today Ubisoft has announced that World in Conflict: Soviet Assault will be released in March for PC. World in Conflict: Complete Edition will be the retail version, containing the original game and Soviet Assault expansion bundled together, while the expansion by itself will be made available exclusively online for gamers who already own the original.

“The teams at Massive Entertainment have worked hard to ensure that they are bringing new original content to the popular World in Conflict brand,” said Tony Key, senior vice president of sales and marketing at Ubisoft. “Fans have been eagerly awaiting Soviet Assault and Ubisoft is excited to be able to bring them great new material.”

Unfortunately, there’s still no new word on where the PS3 and Xbox 360 versions of Soviet Assault stand. At this point I’d say they probably aren’t going to happen, but only time will tell.
