Re: Wing Commander 6: The Undiscovered Release Date (Star Citizen Thread)
So it's been months and I've been tied up with election news but hey look, Squadron 42 beta pushed back to "I dunno"

It's genuinely comforting that some things remain constant in such a crazy world.

Will they make a roadmap for the roadmap for the roadmap?

They already did but you need to be a 5k platinum backer to know about it.

More importantly, did they actually follow the roadmap for the roadmap last time and release a roadmap? Cause it looks like they didn't.

What a ****ing joke.

He also said RSI would not show any of Squadron 42's "gameplay, locations, or assets" in lieu of a beta, because the game is too far from a full launch to begin a marketing campaign. "If we show the non-spoiler gameplay now, that's prime footage and gameplay that could have been used closer to release," Roberts said.
"Because of this I have decided that it is best to not show Squadron 42 gameplay publicly, nor discuss any release date until we are closer to the home stretch and have high confidence in the remaining time needed to finish the game to the quality we want," Roberts added.

"We're not showing any developments of SQ42 because I want to show gameplay footage before we release it."

:rolleyes:

Missed the deadline and removed the deadline from the roadmap to act like it was never there in the ****ing first place. Roberts really should not be left to his own devices. Seriously, what the ****'s even the point of a roadmap if you're not going to ****ing follow the god damn thing?

I wept. Mysterious forces beyond my ken had reached into my beautiful mission and energized its pilots with inhuman bomb-firing abilities. I could only imagine the GTVA warriors giving a mighty KIAAIIIIIII shout as they worked their triggers, their biceps bulging with sinew after years of Ivan Drago-esque steroid therapy and weight training. - General Battuta

idk, they could spin all this incompetence and delays as being a "developer friendly workplace" without crunches and all, capitalizing in all the bull**** we've been seeing all over the place.

But somehow, just somehow, I kind of doubt they'd be able to make that claim.

Since when has that stopped them?

A reminder too - the original kickstarter demo took a year to make and was shown to the public in 2012.

Star Citizen is 10 years old now.

Remember how at the time, the graphics were Crysis-level beyond what most systems could run? It's taken so long, they look old now.

Sounds like it's time to start the engine-swapping phase of development hell.

Communication, all six sources agreed, was the biggest problem. The week began with an interaction that set the tone: On Monday, sources said, an Austin office manager told employees, many of whom had already lost power, to figure out how to make up for lost work time in the near future—specifically “this week/weekend as a first option,” according to one source. That source said the office manager continued: “Assuming roads are clear we also can manage a few people in the studio. If all else fails then enter PTO for whatever time you cannot make up.”

There are a lot of conversations about working conditions in the games industry, but this is just.... In a normal studio, with deadlines, this would still be assholeish and stupid; getting people to take PTO for times where they physically cannot work is (or rather, should be) a case of wage theft.
For CIG, a company that thinks a deadline is something that chris roberts can snort off a table, it gets an extra dimension of sheer awfulness on top.
