Panzer Corps is not getting old simply because there is no alternative for IOS out there. Now, if Order of Battle ever became an IOS port, then this could be a valid fact.

It'd be great to see Order of Battle on iOS, but based on the Twitter exchanges with Slitherine, I suspect there's little chance we'll see it - or any other wargame. The TL;DR from Iain is that free-to-play games run the mobile world, and there's little money to be made with paid apps - especially expensive ones. iOS might see some Slitherine games if they're straightforward to port (e.g., written on a multi-platform game engine, such as Unity).

Then Panzer Corps will remain forever young!

I thought Panzer Corps will not work in IOS 11?

Panzer Corp is not in the IOS 11 app store so I think that is correct.

That's not correct. Panzer Corps is a 64-bit app/game, and it works fine on iOS 11. It is most definitely still in the App Store (I just checked). :D

It's definitely in the App Store. I just checked via the App Store app on my iPad Pro. Just search for "Panzer" and it should be the first item on the list.

I stand corrected. I was checking on my phone and, of course, its not a phone app.

So I checked on my tablet and hey, what do you know, It is there and I already own it. My tablet is IOS 10 so that does not mean much but I am sure you guys are right about it being 64-bit.

I have an obsolete iPad 4 with Panzer Corp on it and am grateful that it still works fine.
