The patches for this game will be far and few until release, if it ever gets that far.

Enjoy the new business model, Hype, early access, get paid...and on the the next project.

Oh come on! go back to steam

B-but steam is filled with happiness and unicorns, and rainbows made of butterflies! Maybe only in my language though.

In English it's full of silly, childish, whiney and baseless comments just like this one

That would be embarrassing and massively counter productive for Larian. They have built a reputation and those things are worth more than a one time million+ sales. I believe if this was EA or Bethesda they would have cut the dev team by 70% and be working on the next lootbox Ladbrookes simulator. Even worse is Scam Citizen. Narr they will be completing the game.

And Blizzard had a good reputation... and a little before that Bethesda had a good reputation... and back in the early years of pc gaming, a small company called Electronic Arts (and not EA) had a very good reputation. You're only as good as the effort put in to your latest work, and the jury is still out on this one imo.

This IS true. and I suppose a day may come, that larian will be too big to care about their fans. but I seriously think It is not this day

You know, a digression, but I'm really curious about the future of Bethesda. I'm almost optimistic after the acquisition. Which is extremely bizarre by itself. I've already discarded all hope for good (or just barely decent) TESVI, but maybe MS will beat some sense into Bethesda... Won't be worse than Zenimax, eh?

I, too, like to make up some random nonsense that has nothing to do with the truth.

Anyone else feel bad that the mods here have basically been left to attempt to herd cats for at least a year over the course of weeks and months of dead air?
I do not envy you guys.

I seem to recall a quest somewhere that involved "herding" 10 cats back home.

This must be an example of life mirroring fiction.

At least wait for them to screw up before you start crying foul. Perhaps the initial price tag was a bit avaricious, but they were not particularly deceitful about what you were buying. And they have not declared they have burnt the ship and are on a lifeboat with our hard earned coin.

Steve Jobs had given a good insight on exactly when it happens back in the day. As long as Swen is truly in charge, it won't I guess.

Very insightful. Thanks for that

Companies don't declare that a ship burned into the ocean depths until a diving team starts pulling charred evidence of the wreckage from the sea floor.
"Hi, we took your money and ran" isn't exactly a solid business practice.

Does anyone else think this is a really awful thing for the devs to do? It completely invalidates many of the theories on the thread!

It's like that philosopher in Trademeet, why would anyone be so selfish as to save him?

Should be obvious but wink just in case

It'd make sense for them to release the next patch in the next few days, and the one after that in January/February. Pretty sure december's gonna be Cyberpunk's month
