    The opposite case with Cyberpunk 2077 worked very well too. With every postponement, people got pissed off and with the too early release it was the same. CD Projekts reputation has suffered a lot.

    SQ42 chapter 1 (of 3) released October of 2022 . Its what i've been thinking for the last 2 years honestly

    Thinkin about it this way if Chapter 1 releases the end of 2022 if they take another year for each chapter you get 2024 for the last chapter. Then I can see SQ42 the complete saga releasing on mid cycle console upgrades in 2025

    Idris destryoing Incoming torpedo.




    At 4:24 there is an even better Idris eplosion


    Squadron 42 won't have chapters it will be released as a whole game. After Squadron 42 they could make another single player game where the development time would be much shorter.

    Well they could hardly make one where the development time was longer, Chris roberts must at least be in his fifties...

    They've been saying that it's not going to be an episodic game since 2014 or so. The story is planned as a trilogy where Squadron 42 will be the first part with it's 28 chapters. Most chapters will have several main and side missions. That Vertical Slice from tree years ago or so was mostly a side mission.

    The second game was supposed to be called "Behind Enemy Lines". Original and veteran backers will reportedly get for free but since Squadron 42 became much more extensive and elaborate than the three games combined were originally supposed to be I have a little doubt about that.

    Tried it a little bit since it's free for now, It's still pretty rough imo. I explored Area 18 a bit, very high settings, seems I'm cpu limited in some situations, but I really don't see why since not a lot is displayed, I'm not impressed at all by the "looks / performance" ratio. And you can't tweak a lot of graphical settings with the gui for now (or I missed it ?).

    The controls feels ok, but I don't like how the keybinding is presented to you, with a visual representation of the keyboard instead of a list of functions like in 99% of games.

    So yeah i gave up after 1 hour. But it's nice to be able to "test" it for free.

    And I don't get the pressure to work when this is not a released game anyway...

    Kotaku gonna kotaku. Wouldn't be surprised if it was totally made up.

    That's not totally fair. Star Citizen isn't entirely made up. ;-)

    I was watching this tonight and couldn't help but think of how much better Star Citizen would have been if they stuck with Crytek and Cry engine instead of going to Amazon's fork of it with lumberyard and then star engine .

    Right now CIG is scrambling to move from DX11 to Vulkan to get decent performance. But it seems like Crytek fixed the majority of this in the Remastered. There might still have been stuff CIG needed to custom mod but I think it would have been a much smoother process if they were doing it in conjunction with what Crytek is doing.

    I upgrade my machine from a 1700x 32gigs of ram vega 56 to a 3700x , 32gigs of ram and a 3080. The game still struggles to run .

    They may have fixed some of their previous issues I guess but it's still DX11 and still suffers from issues with CPU multithreading. What CIG is doing with their branch and moving to Vulkan seems like a much better course of action than putting lipstick on a pig.
