"Oh, and the developer, Square Enix, also just announced they are updating the games to support iOS 11's 64-bit architecture mandate. These games do go on sale quite a bit, however, so factor that in to your decision."
That's FANTASTIC news! Where/when did they make that announcement? I'd like to read that.
Also, any chance you can prod Firaxis/2K about iOS 11 64-bit updates to games such as XCOM, Ace Patrol, Pacific Skies, Pirates!, etc? I've reached out to them via social media many times, but the best I ever heard was an "I don't know anything" from 2K Support.
P.S. I'm still incredibly bummed about soon losing all the Slitherine Battle Academy engine games, some of the Shenandoah games...and Commander the Great War, too?!?! UGH! Slitherine freakin' kills me!!!! KILLS ME, I SAY!
