Oooeeeh this sounds great! Can't wait! [heart]
Frontier have simply learned through experience never to announce something until it's 100% confirmed. Also as a publicly traded company they need to be mindful of the timings of any announcements and do it everywhere pretty much simultaneously so that nobody has an advantage when making trading decisions.There's something to be said about the wording Frontier use along the lines....
Whenever they say "We have nothing to announce about [subject]" that usually means that there is something there, something coming, something in the works that we aren't to know about yet..
They used that wording with Fireworks, Anniversary update, ThemeMakers Toolkit, This RIDES DLC (When asked about rides in the anniversary update) among so many other times that I can't recall...
So.. next time they reply with "nothing to announce", that usually means that we are close to the mark with something
"We have nothing to announce right now" is basically a cover all statement that acknowledges they've seen/heard your question but doesn't actually answer it one way or the other. It does however imply that it could possibly be on their roadmap somewhere down the line, just at an as yet undetermined point.
It means 9 rides and 1 variant, so 10 in totalSo excited for this... the SLC has (oddly) been on my wishlist for quite some time...
and... it looks a like a fairly decent capacity flat ride.. finally!
One question.. This "variant" thing... Does that mean it's 8 new ones and the 9th is a new variant of one of them or is it 9 and the 10th is a variant?
