No they didn't set this date, neither did FD. A group of fans did, I know because I am in that group.
We even considered pushing it back but as FD worked so hard to correct the issues we kept the same date.
For the record I play on both PC/XB1 and I am thrilled about the PS4 support.
I am, always was and always will be supportive of the game on all platforms.
Ok I'll join in.
1) Planetary Bookmarks for me as well as I'm terrible at finding things planetside.
2) Used Ship market so you could buy an old junker or a engineered ship.
3) CQC Updates and Maps. It can be so much fun in CQC but really needs some love and attention.
4) Space legs, all been said earlier in this thread.
5) Atmospheric Landings on inhabited planets.
