I'm out of the news loop, is there any news on what the next Battleship line will be?  And is there any news out there about when it would be released?

Hopefully, the Italian ones. The next lines coming out for sure are the Pan-EU DDs in 9.2/9.3 (Mar 11th/Apr 8th) and then the RU CA split likely in 9.4 (May 6th). After that, only WG knows.

Ah okay, nothing definitive then.

I’d really love to see a line of battlecruisers for the various nations.  Perhaps only to T5 or T6, since after the Washington Naval Treaty, battlecruisers were replaced by fast battleships.

Probably a Russian BB split. They are too underpowered as they are and need to be tuned up.

Remember that there's a difference between battle modes and game modes.

IMO there's a high chance it's going to be Italian BB.

 

But WG being WG I wouldn't be surprised if we have some Pan Asia BB line or something like that.

Probably another Russian BB line.  This time the sigma is 3.0, with 1,200 m/s shells boasting 10k he and 50k AP, with a 10 second reload.  Boats will be able to stealth radar too... 10km base concealment, and 90km radar.

You beat me to it.

who doesn’t want a shell traveling at 3000 f/s with zero drag coefficient?

Italian Battleships.  And I only hope they get done better than how WG treated their Cruiser Line.

It would be funny if they featured SAP, but because of how Overmatch works, SAP would be fantastic on them.

Well since a certain BB line was created with a gun design, a sketch or two, concocted in a bathroom in the Kremlin, had some pictures from a person setting foot on an Iowa class ship, putting Bothans to work on the problem only to die, and asking a US Navy vet with a couple of beers and a smile. 

Since that was created, why not battleships of Scotland(Scottish theme would be tilted kilts), Brazil(Must have art, you know art), Mexico(must have Aztec art), New Zealand( has to have sheep theme or it is a no go), and Australia(has to have a certain Hemsworth be a special captain, we got to get the ladies something pretty to look at, women are the largest consumer other than Latin America), Ireland(potato theme).

I was under the impression we would get a Pan Chinese Battleship line so WG could suck up to the Chinese market.

To be fair, the entire game already has a kind of potato theme.

Ironclad Battleships are cool and all, but they wouldn't even make it to tier 1.

Most likely Italian BB line. Although they could pull out a Pan-American BB line if they wanted to. You can easily get to T5 with actual ships, and T8 with serious designs, and unlike the Swedish DD line, can be populated with more than one nation.

T3: Minas Greaes (Brazil)

T4: Sao Paulo (Brazil)/Rivaderia (Argentina)

T5: Almante Littore (Chile)/ Argincourt/Rio de Janerio/Sultan Osman (RN, Brazil, Ottoman Empire)

T6: Richiaulo (planned but never made Brazilian Queen Elizabeth)
