There should start to be some news after Dragon Commander is released.

2014/2015 release??

Why do people keep sprouting this BS?

Or are you just an eternal pessimist?

BS? did I say I knew for sure it was that time? no, I am asking a question...again going to remind a lot of you to chill out...these are forums. Questions are okay....take a breath, calm,chill, relax.

I asked because there has been no info given in months. With the original goal release only months away.

Months?

There has been news. Not a lot of news, but a fairly steady stream. Which is to be expected--Larian isn't a huge studio and they made a concerted effort to produce a LOT of media during the kickstarter. Now, they have to focus on, you know, their actual jobs. (I don't think they're partnered with any media/advertising company nor do I think they have anyone on staff whose sole job is communication/PR).

The last "official" update was one month ago.
http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/larianstudios/divinity-original-sin/posts

And Sven Vincke occassionaly comments on it on his blog.
http://www.lar.net/

But right now the main focus is (naturally) on Dragon Commander. They're not going to really focus on Original Sin right now because that would dilute the message (which is: "BUY DRAGON COMMANDER!").

Like Raze said, we probably won't see anything until (a while) after Dragon Commander releases. So maybe we'll get a new slew of previews/information come early September. As for any potential delays... Larian hasn't said anything to indicate a delay, and have repeatedly said that they're on-track for their 2013 release window. Keep in mind that the game has been in development for a LONG TIME. The kickstarter came pretty late. They already had an alpha build of the game and were showing it off at E3 back in 2012.

That said, I wouldn't be surprised if it IS delayed as they met ALL of the stretch goals for Original Sin, and will probably still need to devote some time to Dragon Commander post-release to work on patches and support... so, honest, in spite of all the words to the contrary, expecting a Q1 or Q2 2014 release seems more likely to me.

Work on Original Sin wasn't put on hold, just announcements for it.

Raze functions as a pretty official source, so there you have it.


Unless otherwise specified, just an opinion or simple curiosity.

Do you need a way to date the screenshot, as well? A video of someone using the editor holding today's newspaper?


EinTroll / Ellary
On the other hand, since I am in Canada, I can not personally verify all the mentions of D:OS still being worked on (like in the last kickstarter update).

As a moderator, I can't believe that you fell for such a blatant bait. The comment is inane and you gave credibility to it by acknowledging it. This is unbelievable, every time I visit this board, my respect for the staff is always taken down a notch. For some reason I always click on a thread that pisses me off.

If the game becomes a success and you have hordes of users making derogatory remarks, what're you gonna do? Give a retort to each of them and escalate it? The users have expressed support and trusted you which means you have enough credibility to let it slide. But that isn't enough is it?

So... apparently you thought I was serious?

EinTroll and Ellary addressed the accuracy of my post. I was attempting to point out how silly it was to ask for a screenshot as proof.

I didn't read the post as derogatory or a troll, merely 'prove it' (which is more likely 'I'd like to see some proof' or impatience with the lack of news than 'I don't believe you').

No, never thought of it as serious. Someone challenged your credibility and you responded with sarcasm. I didn't think it was necessary.

p.s. spent a lot of time on this reply taking out a lot of things I was tempted to include.

I really didn't see it as a challenge to my credibility, nor the reply as sarcasm.

Yes, it was silly that some would've just ignored it. It was obviously silly to me. Anyway, whatever floats your boat on how you deal with them.

You don't see it as an attack on your credibility/accuracy then good. As I posted above, users in the community deemed it necessary to back you up.

Again whatever floats your boat on how you deal with em. I decided to just express my opinion on the matter and not to cross the line on imposing what I thought you should've done.

if you are going to quite me, use the full quote..

"I trust Raze, He is Canadian~ they are always nice."

He was giving insight on what was posted, my understanding was work had stopped. He cleared it up that it had not.

please keep this on topic and not try and pick fights out of boredom..Perhaps others who didn't know of the kick starter page update can come here and find info..will be a bit bleh if they have to read a fight.

back on topic: update update update we want an update! Btw updates are always good - almost as good as a blog entries. Now the question is if we can either have an update or a blog entry but not both which do we pick ? Maybe we can hope for both ?
