Re: Wing Commander 6: The Undiscovered Release Date (Star Citizen Thread)
If you decide that at one point in development, all (or a number of) known bugs have to be fixed to make a release it's taking more time as it somewhat interrupts the working process.

Well the releases are buggy as hell anyway and I thought that even during normal development you would have to make a "release" internaly to see if you are going in the right direction, see if the basic things of the game actualy work and play your own game.
So I never thought it would make that much of a differance.

It's just my personal guess actually with what I've seen here on HLP. Of course you fix things while doing normal development and work continues but if you constantly tell people "OK, drop what you're working on, we need to do these things first so we can throw out another release" it's slowing down everything. O'course you can say it's lightyears difference but CI doesn't seem to be that "professional" when it comes to development either.

How (un)likely is this still to happen? Decided to read six pages of this thread to do some light reading.

Regardless of everything else, I have to say I'm impressed by their planet technology. It's far beyond anything else I've seen so far, but of course that is all almost entirely meaningless if it doesn't ship. I hope such tech just doesn't get buried under this mess.

Outer Wilds' planet technology is far better change my mind

That's a very good question. CIG have been very quiet about SQ42 during most of 2019 and haven't officially acknowledged any further delays yet. At the end of the year they showed this visual teaser, which was basically panning shots of assets without any gameplay, so nobody was very impressed.
People who track the Squadron 42 roadmap noted that progress basically stalled in mid-2019. Now some of the still faithful attributed this to the ongoing lawsuit between CIG and Crytek (as in CIG is deliberately withholding the actual progress of SQ42 for legal reasons), but in latest space court news CIG and Crytek agreed to settle out of court, so that excuse is disappearing.
So it will soon be time for the Crobear to either fess up and admit even more delays, or some wet fart is released in Q2 for all the world to see.

All in all, the entertainment value of the SC drama is winding down. CIG have cut down massively on the amount of weekly youtube shows they put out, so the self-owns are getting rarer. Even the thread on SA is getting slower, since CIG is producing less lulz-material and most people simply moved on.

lol, I actually stan for those dudes, their game is indeed impressive! I haven't played it yet, but I did watch a couple of very good reporting videos on them. I *will* eventually play it, which is a thousand times more of what I'll say for Star Citizen.

Outer Wilds is awesome - possibly my favorite game of all time. (Controversy!)

It's also a game that would be completely ruined by spoilers, so beware!
