Paradox on Sword of the Stars 2 Problems

Fredrick Wester offered a frank criticism of Sword of the Stars 2 during the recent Paradox Convention, as the Paradox Interactive CEO called releasing the space strategy sequel in an unfinished state a "big mistake." according to Strategy Informer. He went on to explain this turned into a Kobayashi Maru scenario: "Sometimes youre stuck in a situation where you can only choose between two really bad outcomes. Looking back Im not sure what I could have done." He does offer an outlook on how they will attempt to prevent a repeat of this scenario:

Were changing our QA processes based on this game, and were changing the whole model of how we make games with third parties. Weve added amendments to existing contracts to prepare, to try and stop it from happening again."

"But it was bad, and Im the first to admit it was my fault and were doing our best to fix it."

The funny thing is that if they had delayed and released the game in the state that it is in NOW, there wouldn't have been half as much flack.

They have been patching like crazy and the game is actually playable, if not altogether complete.

So if they had decided to go with a March release date, no one would have been much the wiser.

Sad...really sad...
