Well, as they were the whole point of the Battle of the Atlantic, and considering the player gets to control the sub patrol zones and the German raiders too from what I see in the videos, it would seem a bit odd to leave them out of this I'd say  ;)
I am interested in any sort of return too, so don't hesitate to share!
Didn't see any subs in videos I watched. There was an entire video of setting up convoys from India to Suez and one to Malta.  If they have sub warfare, convoys make sense but I would expect them to be automated routes with you setting up escorts and patrols.  Also it was unclear if there was a campaign feature or simply short scenarios.

Ive seen the subs in the campaign maps - not sure if you can actually play them at the tactical level, but they are obviously there. Here in this old video for instance (they appear on the order of battle and on the loss reports). They move on the map symbolized as little red corners.

I picked it up, but haven't had a chance to do more than load it and poke around a bit. I'll post something about it in a week or two (after I get my long-delayed ACWII AAR posted) :)
