    I've been waiting for years, another three weeks isn't what I would describe as a ball buster. I think it comes out on the tenth, they'll want Xmas sales. Not saying it will be ready then but I think it comes out.

    Yeah... because this game isn't that important in the grand scheme of things. I'll play it when it comes out. How many times have we seen devs/publishers force stuff out the gate before it's been properly bug fixed and tested and everyone goes all bananas about bugs and problems. It's like they can't win if they just aren't happy with the current state.

    CHILLLLL... I want it too, but I mean lets get some perspective here. Fired?! You are not in any position of inside knowledge to know what's going on to a degree to call for firings.

    It's cool that they know they need exactly 20 extra days for that ;)

    I don't care so much about this specific delay as I do about how everything about this game has blown up in ways that hurt everyone, consumers and developers alike. I'm sure it's mostly management's fault. They set unrealistic expectations for when the game would launch, made broken promises regarding crunch, and in general have caused gamers to expect more from this game than is reasonable, which in turn puts more pressure on the company to rush, crunch, delay, and squeeze every little bit of developer muscle they can so this game doesn't fail to live up the unrealistically immense expectations they created. And I wouldn't be surprised if it fails to live up to them anyway. If the suits had better managed expectations from the beginning, then the developers wouldn't be working themselves to the bone and gamers wouldn't be in an ever-escalating state of uproar.

    I may cancel my preorder as well. I have no desire to reward this approach to game development.

    Why didn't they just provide themselves a realistic timescale for release? They've now provided at least 3 release dates to the public and missed all 3 dates? Its just bare faced lying.

    Totally agree with you though about perspective etc.
