Almost eight years have passed since then Star citizen launched its first Kickstarter. At the moment, his fans, who have allocated more than $ 306 million to develop the game, must use a seemingly endless series of delays for its final release (hoping, hoping, for a regularly updated but very incomplete alpha version). People also need to have deep patience Squadron 42, a single-player spinoff story that was first promised for launch in 2015.
Now, however, Star citizen faces obvious delays in scheduled updates to the system he uses to publicly track development updates.
This latest saga began in March, when the developer of Roberts Space Industries in a forum post acknowledged that its current public roadmap on Squadron 42 development “was not displayed [the] progress “made in the game.
“We found that the format in which we tried to linearly visualize our progress did not match the approach we take in developing Squadron 42, “I wrote RSI.” Over time, we have found that the presented roadmap cannot and cannot accurately reflect development based on AAA story-based games, such as SQ42. “
In short, the RSI said the current roadmap was too ugly and uninformative for its standards. So RSI has promised to “return to the drawing board to explore the various [roadmap] approaches for Squadron 42“This included potential options that would ‘use our internal sprint tracking process to visualize our progress,’ linking directly to the RSI project’s internal planning software.
Now that we are approaching five months since this announcement, some Star citizen Community members justifiably ask what happened to the promised overhaul of the road map. RSI responded to these problems on Tuesday with a message promising that the overhaul of the roadmap “is still very much developed … Although it is not quite ready yet, it is now a priority in current web team projects.”
This language may seem perfectly familiar to anyone who adheres to the high and protracted development of RSI, which promises development. Don’t worry though; RSI now offers a road map to develop his new revolutionary roadmap:
In the near future we plan to provide the following messages:
1. Explain the goals of our new roadmap and what to expect from it
2. Show an approximate layout of the proposed new road map
3. Share an unfinished version of the roadmap for at least one of our core teams
4. And then finally move on to this new road map
We’ll approach them in the order above, and we’ll probably need a few weeks between steps, so I don’t want to give the impression that it’s happening overnight. But we need to announce step 1 soon enough if my meeting on Thursday is as good as I think it will be.
And I really like it Squadron 42 RSI itself promises that a new road map will be worth the wait. “Believe me when I say that I personally really want to fire it,” wrote community manager Tyler Witkin. “We took the time to explore options on how we could better represent our progress, and I believe we are approaching landing in a pretty great location … This is a new roadmap will radically change the way the 42nd and Star Citizen Squadron develop [emphasis added]. “
After waiting almost eight years and counting Star citizen, we here in Arsi can’t wait for this exciting new development to “drastically change the way [we] However, we look forward to an update that offers more details on the development of a new roadmap, which we expect to be available in a few months.
