I agree with you. To a point that is. I think them updating their older assets is great. Because comparing the old hornet to the latest ship would be terrible to see.
That said they are working way to long on the game. Now, I understand it can take alot of time to create such a game. But they should have atleast developed squadron 42 by now. Its a single player story driven, mostly linear, game. They havent even shown anything from it yet. 2 years (?) since the trailer release, even longer since they promised to show us more ‘soon’.
Even last year, they couldnt finish the demo in time… okay, Sure. They promised us again to show us more, soon (This was in october) then came the Christmass stream, SQ42 wasn’t even mentioned let alone the demo.
So I agree, had I known this was the development process. I wouldn’t have backed the game. Again, I know it can take a long time to make a game. But atleast show progress or keep the community well informed.
