From what I heard there are always people working on the game. And if they had money growing on trees it's would prolly go a lot faster. But try to understand why they downplay it a bit. First maybe they don't even know when it is done. <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/beyond.gif" alt="" /> had a bit of a hype, but when you look at it it lacked a bit of polish since they had to release the game. I believe a good pr campaign needs to start 6 months in advance and I would be surprised if it is released in 2007. Please understand that this is not an EA-type company. While EA is like general motors , Larian is like a Koenigsegg company. Small number of employees and a few cars , but the cars they do make are supercharged and deliver top performance. Divinity 2 is the flag ship of larian so it is handled with love and is not some fast cash grab. May the current PC's are not powerful enough to run the game <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/winkwink.gif" alt="" />
That being said it would be a good time to release it since I don't know many RPG that are in the works, so they wouldn't have much competition. The problem I have is that th devcycle might be so long that they can't make a profit on it? Then again the engine could prolly be used on an other project too.
