Well, they were expecting funding for a small dev team. A few mill doesn't go very far when you have to pay programmers 100k each, then tack on rent, equipment, and all the business expenses and other employees you need.

The increased budget allows them to have more employees working on different things, and to expand the complexity of what each employee is doing. The problem with the latter is a lot of the time you can't just add more people to get it done faster, the money has to go to just paying the one person or team for more hours, stretching out development time.

My issue with development can be summed up pretty easily.

4 revisions of the hornet, including the F7A - which did not need its own model, not at this time anyways.

3 revisions of the constellation

why.

The answer is Chris Roberts, he's never delivered a project on time or on budget. EVER.


I have 200 of my own skin in this game and I have NO belief it will ever come out at this point.

Not that it matters, but I have more than that in it at this point as well.

I'm still sure the game will release, the only issue being that they can call it "done" whenever they want as per a cute change to the EULA a year or so ago. A part of me believes they will bail on SC once SQ42 is "done" and be finished with the project. I hope I'm wrong.

With pretty logical rough numbers, they'll run out of money and will have to abandon it after SQ42 IF SQ42 comes out. They've now reshot the MOCAP twice. MOCAP is not cheap especially when you have, and I am not kidding, 1000 pages of dialogue.

They had two choices. Build the tiny game they promised (which still woulda been two years) or turn the nearly neverending trickle into an actual development company.

People need to stop imagining the money as one big lump. I'm sure they've got some of it rolling over somewhere as well.

I've been expecting 2017 since 2014, but I haven't paid it any attention in awhile. Like CR said, they barely built **** as far as the game went in the first almost 2 years due to the massive increase in planned scope.

Don't quote me on this, but I believe CR was bragging on ATV a couple of weeks ago about how the script was now OVER 1250 pages. I know that the 1000 page thing was early on in development.

They also picked probably the most expensive mocap studio to use, imaginarium.... its Andy Serkis's studio (who is also in the SQ42 campaign as a Vanduul....)
