CIG was preparing to show a complete mission from Squadron 42 but pulled it before the presentation due to it not living up to their expectations. Not only that but they didn't even commit to a 2017 release. However, we will be seeing the footage soon - possibly by the end of the year. People can then judge the game for themselves. The technology they had on show for Star Citizen 3.0 was very impressive but the community reaction to CitizenCon overall was that of disappointment.
CIG really needs to improve the way the communicate delays with the community, as releasing a $900 concept sale and having a segment on ship sales just before they announce they won't be showing the footage mentioned just a few weeks ago didn't sit well.
I have full confidence that the game itself will be great but I don't have any confidence that it will be released any time soon. For me the features they've added along the way, like procedural planets, will more than make up for the delay.
