Found this as well in their comments. Example development time comparison of other MMOs (I wonder if ESO fans were mad about that 7 year wait). Anyways, I'll leave ya'll to your discussion - time to go play Witcher 3.
The big question is: Why has no one ever shown that image to Christ Roberts? Why does he keep coming up with totally unrealistic dates?
Because: Let us not shift the blame. The community is getting impatient because CIG keep missing THEIR OWN target dates that they voluntarily publicize to the fans. It was Christ Roberts who claimed live on stage last year that we'd play the FPS module by March, not the community. Do. Not. Shift. Blame. The unrealistic expectations are 100% a CIG self-made issue.
100% correct. I will never understand why they keep caving to pressure to give dates when this is such uncharted territory in game design challenges. They're up to their neck in difficult shit that hasn't been attempted before at this level of detail.
