    Companies fail... Shareholders get screwed. Means nothing in regards to the likelihood of the game being released.

    Controversial take "Star Citizen Is Going To Disappoint You".

    Considering the date of the article you'd think they'd know the RDR2 budget easily surpasses the GTA5 budget and SC's, possibly combined if you include marketing. Point stands though. Rockstar knew what they were doing, had realistic goals and competent management so the game came out. SC has inept management, insane goals and is still missing core tech.

    Delays more delays, even if you take out the Corona cause every patch for 8 years has been delayed.
    Learn to set a realistic date?, or maybe less shit in each patch? How do you get it wrong for 8 years?

    Why are you acting surprised though?

    Since the beginning they have always had delayed features in their roadmap, the roadmap has always been best case scenario and due to the game being essentially a dream game

    Setting a realistic date doesn't really change anything, and doesn't really have a negative effect on the actual game, just maybe the enthusiasm of fans.

    They are basically publishing their internal roadmap, which in my experience with business' never ends up being reality. What they should have created was a public roadmap, but I really don't think it would make any difference.

    Delays are very normal with game development, its just not normal on this scale, we are essentially watching someone learn how to drive a car, and we aren't sure if the car will be driveable at the end.

    I can agree with 3.9 delay, they have to work from home now.
    But say setting a longer date in the future and then surprising people with an earlier release would boost confidence in the product, people are stupid, deliberately set it beyond actual release, become loved! People are easy to manipulate. I think i'll go start a crowdfunded sale of virtual items tomorrow.

    You have a good point, but I think its already been proved that people don't really care, at least for Star Citizen in particular.

    While early on their intentions are questionable, I don't think they are currently trying to manipulate anyone about release date, Chris Roberts in recent times has been very honest about the release date for key features Star Citizen requires that basically means we shouldn't expect anything until the end of 2021. (Thats pre corona virus as well)

    Developers can't have perpetual development promising the game of everyone's dreams and spending millions on wages a month, it can't go on forever.
    With a struggling engine and server model, shallow alpha gameplay, constant delays in progress and with no end in sight, more and more backers will simply become disillusioned..

    The mocap with all the TV/Movie actors for the SP game was back in 2015... lol

    I think they should celebrate another delay with another expensive ship jpg selling.

    It's been 8 years and they have only just coded ship docking?

    It is normal though, no need to have a big cry about it all the time.

    As I already said, the roadmap does not affect how quickly the game is completed, it would be the same with or without it, which is that its not coming out for ages.

    Another official roadmap update, and another bunch of stuff is delayed or removed again! Backers are not happy:
    https://robertsspaceindustries.com/...orum/3/thread/roadmap-roundup-april-17th-2020

    Less and less content coming out each quarter now, lack of game loops, all that money spent with very little progress.
    Judging by the comments on the official forum thread, many long standing backers are starting to lose their patience now.. :Paranoid:

    Summary:

    Don't worry, certain backers here will tell us they're delighted because another delay just means the game is going to be even better. Look at all the time and care they're spending on it!
