Cloud Imperium Games will provide information on upcoming games Star Citizen development goals with changes to the way the public roadmap works. Basically, the public line will now only show the next quarter’s patch coming, and the company’s reason is not okay with many people.
Two years after changing their public roadmap to include more development details, they’ve decided to limit what’s being released because of community expectations. seems a bit too high and people complain if something is delayed or moves around.
Their update states that the initial expansion roadmap was put in place because, “Another big goal for us is to use our new Public Roadmap to better educate our community.” on how game development is extremely flexible and helps you understand features and content moving around (both forward and backward) is a natural state in software development. “This is fair because the game takes a long time to create anddevelopment of s (which has been going on for over a decade now) continues, some things may be changed. Their change of route starts from “transport arrive develop” and want show what they are working on overall not only when ssomething might be coming out.
In essence, frustrations, expectations, and everything from complaints to negative feedback for reverting to a pattern that only shows development for the next quarter’s patch starting with Alpha 3.18. Since they will no longer show the things listed as highly likely delayed or moved, There aren’t many complaints about them, maybe?
The community has reacted in different ways, from some understanding that things are getting back to the way they were, but many are angry, not necessarily at the change, but at the trust being abandoned. to the player community and blame them for the change in the first place.
CIG has had a new, larger studio and has seen some growth, with statements from the company say there might be something for 42 Squadron in the next year or two. For something that’s been in development for a decade, the community at large will have patience until this point. Blaming expectations of future development information cutting is not going well.
