"Just hoping they release the game asap"

Too late for that. Mission creep has overrun the project.

This is where the money is going, paying wages to a game that has no end in sight.

Yet the game's still not released

If it was released, they wouldn't need that many developers.

Well if you look at the time frame of the games development to be honest it's not really that Shocking I think some of you guys need to remember that this game was technically announced in 2012 when it was actually just starting development....

Many gamers are used to hearing games announced when they were being worked on for several years in secrecy, a game like this that was crowdfunded cannot afford that luxury.

Understand it this way the order 1886 actually started development all the way back in 2010 now if that development team had to crowdfund that game and they announced it the year they started development it means you would have heard about this game since 2010, so of course you're going to be complaining about his development because you're more aware of its existence then had you have never known in the first place so it creates disillusion as if the games development is unusually long when in reality you don't normally actually hear of a games development within months of its starting that is extremely rare and doesn't really happen often.

I mean do you think that the varied a rock star started development on Grand Theft Auto V they announced it to the world?

"cannot afford that luxury. "

They have raised 180 million dollars...

Maybe they should sell the right to a competent developer.

@2pac- please stop trying to post quotes out of context.

"Many gamers are used to hearing games announced when they were being worked on for several years in secrecy, a game like this that was crowdfunded cannot afford that luxury"

So all I am saying is that because the game is crowdfunded and they got that much money the people had to hear of the damn game first before they received all that money to start development, which means they cannot create the game in secrecy because they're not going to be getting funding about a game no one's ever heard from the general public as it contradicts how Kickstarter even works.

So that is what I mean what I'm saying they did not have the luxury.

As opposed to do cherry picking in trying to argue what's something completely out of context.

Smh.

6 years, $180 million, 475 devs. And still no finished game.

ger2396248d ago

Maybe my grandchildren will get to play the final release.

Smitty2020248d ago

The amount of funding they have received I hope they do something good with it
