There is a new ww2 naval game in the makings; Battlefleet WWII from Fireforge Games. It is set for release in 2020, moust likely true a kickstarter.

This will be a ww2 fleet game played on a 6x4 table using resin ships in the 1:1800 scale, but airplanes will be a bit out of scale for easier playability. The rules are currently in beta testing, but im not shure if that is internal testing only.
They claim they have made a good compromise between playability and historical accuracy and a "defualt game" will take a few hours.

Rules will cover a range of different historical fleets with scenarios focusing in on engagements in various theatres of ww2: Pacific (US, UK and Japan), Mediterranean (Italy, UK and France), Atlantic (UK, US and Germany) and Baltic (UK, Germany and Russia).
There will apparently be two ways to play the game; scenarios and open play. Scenarios limits the game to historical correct theatres and scenarios, open play removes these limitations.

There is not a whole lot of info about the game yet as it was first presented in april, but naturaly more info will come during the months ahead.
