Today we wanted to share a development update. After a lot of thought and evaluation, we have decided to move to a quarter update release schedule. The reason behind this is both simple and complex. As we have been transparent from the beginning, I do want to share with you the details of what led to this decision and what you can expect going forward.
Reasoning and factors
Releasing updates each month presents some significant challenges that we had to battle throughout the year. The most important being the need to polish added content every month. As a result, we would release some updates that added more bugs to the game. In addition to this, it caused our released content to be lite, leading to disappointment about the progress of the game.
We will move to releasing content over the course of 3 months at a time. This will give us a chance to cover more ground on each patch and have adequate time to test the game-play and features. Of course with game development, this does NOT mean that the updates will be bug-free, but our hope and goal is to eliminate the larger, more game breaking ones in each release.
So, with that said, we will start this release schedule immediately. The next update will release in January (due to the Holidays). So, the new schedule will be January, April, July and then October.
As always, we expect to deliver the final game as soon as possible. Thanks for your patience and we look forward to delivering the next update.
