Jumpgate Evolution Delay

A Jumpgate Evolution Development Update on the Codemasters Forum breaks the news that Jumpgate Evolution is delayed, and NetDevil's MMO space-combat remake is not going to be released in June as planned, and they are not offering a revised release date at this point. The update, written by Scott Brown, says that the game is actually feature-complete, but that friends and family testing has allowed them to see the game's shortcomings in its current state through fresh eyes, and they are working on making a more fun experience. Word is:
Based on these results, it is clear that the product needs more time to meet its objectives. As an example, we have received and read lots of feedback regarding the instanced and public PvP systems. The feedback has been vital in helping us polish and improve this core feature of the game. We take a lot of time in digesting and considering what people say and take feedback seriously. Given that situation I can tell you that we would rather delay the release, than let you down by releasing an unfinished product. We will continue development past June while extending the test schedules and respond to the results of those tests.

To anyone following the game, this comes as no surprise at all. The last few dev diaries were talking about new ship designs and still tweaking how they handle. That was an unmistakable sign that there was no way it would release in June.

Another one I'm looking forward to that will supposedly release in June is Fallen Earth (post-apoc scenario). They've been uncommonly quiet for a game a month out, I fully expect them to announce a delay also.

I don't always drink carbonated Mexican rat piss, but when I do, I prefer Dos Equis.

What's so weird and bizarre about a family & friends beta? It's far from the first time I've heard it, and it's usually used before it reaches a more wider closed beta.

Once again, BN posters get angry about nothing.

I believe them. This is a good move.
