[pcgamesns] Star Citizen's Squadron 42 release slips into 2017 - Page 14

Roberts trusted that Microsoft would not compromise his vision for Freelancer, and was convinced the software giant would not attempt the takeover if it did not believe Freelancer could sell at least 500,000 copies when released. Roberts left the company on completion of the deal, but assumed a creative consultant role on Freelancer until its release.Microsoft instructed Digital Anvil to scale down the ambitions of the project and focus on finishing the game based on what was possible and the team's strengths.Features such as the automated flight control, conversations that had different choices of responses, and sub-quests were abandoned. Despite the reductions, several reviewers believed the resultant product was still true to Robert's vision.

the community saved the game with the modifications later on.

SC doesn't have the budget and publisher constraints

you guys should wait like a normal game development instead of throwing guesses and saying "oh they are going to postpone again" . the game never had an official date.

its in early access and the MP world will take at least 2 more years for the basic features like professions, activities\missions, economy etc to fully work.
the structure of the game is almost ready to support multiple missions with AI and objects in the world without losing performance and interruptions like loading s in planets or deep space .

SQ42 shouldn't be that far, probably coming next year ..

When my boss says the raise I have been promised is "now coming next year", I start looking for a new job and more trustworthy superiors.




Thanks - T

When the charity I donated to tells me the houses I donated towards are "now coming next year", I demand a refund and take all my money back.

Charity = My money, given to benefit someone else. I don't care when it's done.

Purchase = My money, being given to benefit me. I am concerned with the result, as it directly affects me.



Also, people regularly sue charities that don't do what they promise, or defraud, or have unscrupulous CEOs, etc.

There's a really good reason I don't support Wounded Warrior Project (and I'm a purple heart recipient).

Of course people expect something in return when donating to SC, they all can ask for refunds (and if everybody did that, the project would be effectively halted). But they don't. And here's the funny part, those complaining didn't contribute a single cent to the game. So what the hell? Some people just can't seem to accept innovation.

Also, everybody complaining don't know a single thing about game dev. (and before y'all say 'but I've watched UE4 videos on youtube!!1!11!, know that this is on another level and most of the stuff taking time to get ready are coding and math problems that you'd probably never solve, so let the experts deal with it thumb.gif )

I'm disappointed about the SQ42 delay, really wanted to play it this christmas... But, I'd take a delay over Arkham Knight or AC: Unity every day! biggrin.gif

That doesn't answer my question about why you think it will be generic crap. You are comparing a microsoft game to a fully crowdfunded one.

Which is what star citizen is.

Got any proof for this? Other than the scope for the game expanding (which is a good thing)

What about unscrupulous backers? tongue.gif

I actually find this funny. It's just a game lol, and you donated to his project. People get so upset.

I never said it will be generic crap. However, I think comparing a Chris Robert's directed game that promised everything and went way over budget and over schedule only to be released with major parts cut... a game that, in essence, was pretty much meant to be exactly what Star Citizen is meant to be, to SC is totally fair. Yes Microsoft made him release the game, but... yeah... sometimes you just have to hit your schedule? I mean, when was the last time you heard of a game stuck in development hell for years and years and delayed over 3-4 years passed its original date and then it was amazing/successful when it launched? and don't pretend like SC isn't in development hell, games that are going smoothly don't get articles written about their troubles by every gaming source on the internet.

Just look at Chris Robert's history with big productions. They ALWAYS run into this. He bites off more than he can chew.

The game gets articles written about it because it's the most successful Kickstarter project ever and the media feels it needs to hold them in a higher standard of accountability since it's people's money and not a publisher. You're just starting to regurgitate SA forums now. smile.gif

The schedule was changed based off of a community poll. No, you don't sometimes just have to "hit your schedule" because they need to please investors that don't give a crap one way or the other what the actual product is. That's how you get crap products.
