Development

Jane's Attack Squadron was one of the final projects being worked on at Looking Glass Studios when they folded in early 2000. Being nearly completed, the developers fought to get EA to put the finishing touches on the game. but since they were shutting down their sim division it seemed as if the game would never see the light of day.

In the end it's release was a small miracle for flight sim fans, as developer Mad Doc Software first hired most of the ex-LG staffers that were working on the project and then, via a partnership with publishing house Xicat, got the rights for both Jane's license and the rights to the unfinished game Looking Glass had been working on.
