Well, perhaps we shouldn't discuss any more when does summer end. On IGN site it says "Release Date: December 31, 2008" :eek:

IGN makes stuff up when they don't know the real dates. I wouldn't trust them. I'm not saying that they will/will not make the "Summer" date, I'm just saying IGN probably doesn't know anything more than we do.

Didn't Reed say that any change in release date would be reflected on the company website?

yes and it still says

Coming Summer '08

I was actually hoping it would be pushed back because then they might be adding some of our suggestions. :o

Keep in mind that with an online release and a $20 price tag, Hinterland isn't your regular PC game, so the usual worries about competition with other titles etc may not necessarily apply. I think is the important thing at the moment is to make the game as great as possible and get some good reviews since they're about the only way to generate sales; there's no existing brand name like Caesar or SimCity to rely on, and the online game community (which is virtually Hinterland's only audience atm) relies on reviews a fair bit more than the average consumer. So good reviews+low price point is pretty much the sales model for Hinterland. To that end TM should take as long as they need, but maybe tell us/confirm the release date if they're not too busy. :)

It's good to hear that beta is getting ready to get underway but I think that it also means that Hinterland is definitely NOT coming out this month. I'm starting to wonder if perhaps we are looking at late September for a release.

I am all for giving Tilted Mill lots of time with their new venture. Having acquired the IP to Children of the Nile, released an updated version of the game on Steam and made the Steam release upgrades patch available to existing owners of CotN, committed to release an campaign/scenario pack for CotN, released the most recent Sim City Societies expansion and got Hinterland in the late stage of development, well, I'm impressed (smily face.) The words to use here might be "cut them some slack"...

As far as release dates go, I've never had a game I was waiting for come out at the original posted date.

I think Oblivion was over a year late and Mount and Blade is still Shooting for Sept, all though it was supposed to be finished up in April.

Release dates are always best case scenario guesses.

I'd rather wait a little longer for any game to come out if it's less buggy.

I can't stand installing a game and then finding out you need a huge download patch just to play it on Vista.

That's happen to me twice already. It's gotten a bit better since Vista has been out for a few years though.

I agree with Ivot on what the beta means. Typically they would have beta tested it at least a month or two prior to intended release.

Unless they are damn sure it's nearly bug free.

I believe that the EULA thing that you had to agree to when you apply to Beta test said that the Beta test would end in November, so that December estimate may not be that far off.

It's worthless to speculate though, just gets us all riled up and excited. Not that that is necessarily a bad thing I suppose.
