They can as they've done a good job of it in the past, they've simply chosen not to for the past two to three years.FD cannot manage that for some reason.
Looking at the past 2 years, it's easy to understand why: there was barely anything worth talking about.I don't know why they are so reluctant to talk about development, but I do know how incredibly frustrating it feels as a fan of the franchise.
Feeling, as in hunch, guess, fear, ...Source???
He explicitly said "I'm getting the feeling".
I mean, it's a very wild (and imo not really useful) speculation, but I don't think he needs to quote his own mind as a source?
You want source for a feeling? You fanbois really are getting worse.
Thanks!If it's any consolation, yes I get that feeling too.
Good and bad imo.This would be great if true. They need to do things better if they want to keep this up for 3 years.
I hear that :-(I am more concerned about how long it’ll be until the stuff after 3.3. The ‘4’ stuff.
But its "SO Exciting!"Everything with Elite is only weeks away. Weeks away for the next release, weeks away for the videos discussing the next release. It'll end up being 20 weeks away. JUST WEEKS!
One company treats their customers for adults, the other one doesn't care.I just really wish that FD would be honest.
FD demonstrate a complete lack of confidence in themselves when they constantly churn out all this 'soon' and 'excited' .
Other companies manage it better. X Plane dev forum for example: Ask them a question and they give you a straight answer, not always what you want to hear but yes, a straight answer.
FD cannot manage that for some reason.
In all honesty, I feel this might have been the case.Looking at the past 2 years, it's easy to understand why: there was barely anything worth talking about.
I think this is a little unreasonable, we have more information about the likely contents of 3.3 than we would normally have this far before release (assuming late Q4) and more discussion than normal went on (ie more Dev posts) in the first day or so after releasing info in both the important community update and Chapter Four - Exploration Reveal threads.At least until Frontier decides its time to talk about it, or at the very least show us something.
A percentage of them are also working on future updates and expansions after Beyond.In all honesty, I feel this might have been the case.
I mean yes Frontier keeps assuring us that they have 100+ dedicated people on Elite, but realistically in the past three years Frontier has developed and released both Planet Coaster and Jurassic Park, plus they are working on one more secret game as well. That's two "crunch times" to release new games. I feel it's pretty likely that they pulled some people off of Elite to help out with both of those game launches.
