It seems to me that this game is suffering from feature creep, where more and more features keep being added which further and further delays the game. At some point you have to call something “done,” release it and then continue to build on it from there. There’s always another feature that could be added. This is consistent with almost anything in life, I could study for a test forever and just put off taking it but the school system eventually forces you to take it no matter how much more study time you may believe you need.
@SnowHawk I realize this is a little late on the reply from what i have seen of the development plan - the core game is going to be release then all other “features etc” are to be released with update and DLC’s so as to not delay the core game any further.
