I am sure when the Second Edition comes out, many of these concerns will be dealt with, especially with a more streamlined and clearer rule book.
If not by Avalon Hill, then maybe Eagle Games. They did a good job, with Conquest of the Empire( I basically stuck with the old set of rules), and, Shogun(kept most of the old rules).
Along with any new minis/collectable minis.
As for a new follow up game, for example like Jutland, or, Lawerence’s adventures in the Mid-East , is pure speculation.
My best bet would be a tie in game like Axis & Allies 1915 and The War of the Worlds(H.G. Wells Novel could be given as a treat inside the game box).
Alas any reissued game would probably have those DAMX Zombie theme to it, thanks, Pellulo
PS I would never ever RoundRobin the latter.
