The early previews were mostly from Squadron 42, so we know that they have that at least some working. The plan is to have the full release early 2015, but still add more content and features over time.

Not sure what you are talking about and the Wiki you quoted is outdated.
The early previews were merely a demo in the CryEngine. It's called visualization. Chris Roberts and a couple other people made that stuff to show what Squadron 42 should look like one day. Everything in there was just mockup though for visualization purposes. It wasn't real playable content. Just a demo.

Development of the real Squadron 42 game has actually started just fairly recently (December) at Foundry 42, the Manchester UK based studio that is headed by Erin Roberts.
Of course they'll be using a lot of the assets that the teams in Austin and Santa Monica (and elsewhere) have created but they are starting from scratch with mission #1.

Also, there is not going to be a "full release" as far as Squadron 42 is concerned. Erin Roberts has confirmed that Squadron 42 is going to be an episodic game.
The release of the final episode is supposed to be timed to coincide with the launch of the persistent universe (most definitely nowhere anywhere remotely near "early 2015").
Foundry 42 just started working on S42 in December. I have very serious doubts that there will be a first episode in early 2015. On the other hand they haven't really committed to what constitutes an "episode" so if it's three missions at a time, well, then it might happen but I wouldn't expect anything substantial before mid 2015 at the very earliest.

And they made Stephen Elop (the guy they sent to sabotage Nokia, so that they could buy it) the head of the Expanded Devices Division (which includes newly-purchased Nokia, Xbox, etc).

Seriously? Wasn't Elop the dude who suggested dismantling the Xbone division when the nu-CEO race just started? That is beautiful news if so because if they specifically put Elop in *that* position then it could mean that they are in fact seriously considering to take the fucking wrecking ball to da Xbone department with Elop at the controls.
There are definitely not enough tissues in this world to do my jacking off justice if that plan of Elop's came to pass.

Oh, and everything and I mean e-v-e-r-y-t-h-i-n-g will be forgotten and forgiven if that Nutella clown shuts down the fucking Xbone division to refocus on PC Windows gaming. Honestly. I would try to crowdfund the most massively awesome blowjob this dude has ever gotten in his whole life if that became true. Like the Houston 620 with Nutella bro as Houston (well, and swap the guys for the gals... or maybe not if he doesn't want to... he straight or queer?).

Please. Make it so.

That can't be cheap.

Yeah. EA holds the NFL license so these guys must obviously be somehow connected to that rotten apple which does not bode well for the whole bunch...

News Comments > Battlefield 4 Mantle Update Released

ChaosEngine wrote on Jan 30, 2014, 16:19:
To the people who say NVidia can safely ignore Mantle, I think you're missing out on two important factors:

1. AMD chips are in both the XBone and PS4, so both of these will inherently support Mantle. As such it makes sense for devs to support it. If you were a AAA publisher and could get any advantage on both consoles and AMD pc users, why wouldn't you? That's got to be well over 75% of your market share right there.

2. DICE have implemented Mantle in Frostbite and EA have already mandated that all their studios are to use Frostbite.

Given those two together, it means that one of the largest publishers in the business is backing a technology that can be applied to the majority of it's customers. From a business perspective, I can't see any devs backing an NVidia proprietary solution. The only ones who could possibly pull it off are Valve (who are very cosy with NVidia).

Regardless of the technical merits of Mantle, it makes sense from a business perspective, and business decisions trump technical concerns. Always.

Dude, one more time: EA has purportedly received US$ 8 million from AMD for implementing Mantle support. They did not do this because they thought it would be cool to do or because they care about gamers. They did this for the $$$.

We all know how much the big publishers care for and love their PC ports, right? What makes you think that anyone -without being handed similar bribes- will voluntarily support Mantle? That won't happen. What might happen is that MS and Sony will specifically start bribing devs to NOT support Mantle on the PC version as they already do when it comes to keeping the quality of PC ports on the lower end of the spectrum.

Mantle is going to be a total niche that will only be supported by games where AMD coughed up a bribe (like BF4) or by indie/KS developers who want to support Mantle to attract some extra attention to their games.

There's no reason to ditch anything if only a few games ever use Mantle. Without NVIDIA support a lot of devs just won't bother with it.

Eeeeeee-fucking-xactly . Heck, most publishers/devs can't even be arsed to dedicate half an hour to edit config files to remove console leftovers or make the UI scale better to high resolutions on the PC.
Anyone who believes that Mantle will be supported by more than a handful of games is delusional.

The only reason that BF4 has Mantle support is that AMD purportedly threw $8 million bucks in EA's general direction. It remains to be seen how many more millions AMD can afford in bribes. Looking at their financial track record I have serious doubts that the coffers will last all that long.

But without the bribes publishers aren't going to give a fuck about a proper PC version, let alone Mantle support. It's a pretty expensive marketing gag by AMD to boost their VGA sales but this shit has zero substance in the greater picture and will likely just die a silent death from lack of support and interest.

One of the issues I had with the character was how cartoony Laura looked in comparison with the other characters that they tried to make look like real people. Laura still looks a bit like a barbie doll, doing every movement as sexily as she possibly can.

OMFG. You didn't really just write "Laura" twice... /epicfacepalm


You, Sir, are having your Tomb Raider license irreversibly revoked *stamp*

SWG was an incredibly retarded game. The only thing it had going for it was it was Star Wars and the world design team did an awesome job with the planets, the cities and the POIs. Just about everything else reeked of incompetence.

Nah their MO seems to be to just act like a sponge for MMO gamers. Look at the Station MMO network. Lots of pretty similar cookie cutter MMOs. The more, the merrier. They are the masters of carrot dangling and sucking money and life force out of people.

It isn't going to meet people's expectations.......probably not going to end well....

Well it's interesting that somehow they're going to magically hit 40 million and then it's going to stop.
Maybe at 40 mill they will stop taking any more money, and people will not be able to back it until the game comes out.
Sort of what Project CARS did.

That won't happen because as the campaign and its frequent "just one more last" sales (and the backpedalling with regard to LTI) has shown -> Chris Roberts' greed is infinite!
