    Well, at the current pace news were being delivered, this was to be expected.

    Still a pretty fair time window, though. You know the saying, "a game delayed can be good, but a game rushed leads to a Batman Arkham Knight/Cyberpunk 2077 **** storm level of backlash". I'm okay with waiting.

    Well, that's frustrating, but I were expecting it. You should have said it sooner, though. Hopefully, the delay will be worth it.

    No christmas release means no TWWH3 gaming marathon in the holidays.
    Super sad, i will have to play it a couple hours at night now..

    Not surprising. This late in the year without a release date yet, I had expected a delay. I'm glad you're not rushing it out to make an arbitrary deadline.
  • duglandtotoduglandtoto Registered Users Posts: 439
    I would have preferred a precise date : like February 1st. Whenever I see "early, Late, and Soon" , i'm a bit worried.

    So, will TWW2 get something in the meantime?
  • HondlisHondlis Junior Member Registered Users Posts: 1,333
    ...and the date is??
  • LordCommanderLordCommander Registered Users Posts: 2,693
    Well it was always a possibility, but if it's released 4 1/2 years after W2, it better be bloody good.

    If they do give a date, and they're not ready on time and have to push it back again, the forums will be in uproar. They are playing it safe.

    Yes, not exactly what anybody wants to hear, but is what was suspected by now.
    Looking forward to it in early 2022.

    At last some perspective.

    Don't mind the delay at all, I'd rather get a finished game than a rushed one. Mega hyped for Cathay tomorrow.

    oh well, all warhammer games moved to 2022 :D

    bad news.

    Would you prefer the game to release earlier in a buggy mess ?

    I don’t mind the delay as long as we don’t get radio silence.

    I'm expecting another 1-2 month radio silence for CA to focus on promoting whatever they are selling this holiday season.

    Laughing at all the youtubers releasing videos at the same minute the news went up about the delay. The early videos this month about a delay were obvious damage control to soften the blow.
    CA loves to control their narrative with these youtubers that are unpaid marketers at this point.

    I mean no one wants that, but we do have to bear in mind Warhammer 1 was delayed a month and still had the incredibly obnoxious agent spam. One hopes they can avoid such pitfalls in the future.

    Seems ALL CC's knew about this information yet WE, your fanbase, your playerbase hasnt got any info at all for 2months and then u drop this dissapointment in our lap and u dont even give us a release date now. Shameful behavior imho, if u knew what was comming as u clearly did consider all the intsa-released CC Vidz u should have let US ALL know about this, this is not leaked Units, Gameplay or such this is Release date info, it effects our planning, your Sales, CC dont buy your games WE do.

    If u wanna better the product fine, but keep us in the loop not just CC's this is poor communication with your customers, your fans. Take a look at Paradox and Ashes of Creation for inspiration

    Dissapointed
  • kevManiackevManiac Registered Users Posts: 936
    Thanks for the headsup. Was to be expected, and I don't mind a delay of a few months.

    Also, Cathay reveal tomorrow! Hype!
    Races I'd like to have in Warhammer: Chaos Dwarfs, Southern Realms, Nippon, Ogres. In that order :P

    I'm fine with this. From the state of the first two rosters and the lack of information regarding anything outside that one quest battle I had assumed that it was no where near finished.

    Thank you for telling your investors who I know were putting a ton of pressure on you to make a holiday release to toss off.

    Hopefully now that there are no new games coming out and no new DLCs for any of them that means the entirety of CA's workforce can dedicate itself to the production of the final game.

    Yes this sucks. And WH3 probably wont come out until April or May now. But its better that than a cyberpunk situation.
    Request scorched body textures, poisoned dying animations for infantry's skeletons, a blood slider that allows us to control how much blood appears in battle and make proper death animations for all ethereal units so they vanish for Blood for the Blood God 3.

    Aww that's a shame but for a better game it's worth it. It's gonna be interesting tomorrow, hope there's a fun trailer with a few new unit reveals

    A lot of people did not see that coming.

    That was very likely. They had very, very little time to pump out all the required news before, at the most, early December. Releasing later in the month would be a disastrous decision. It looks like they wanted them holiday sales but the game just wasn't ready. In which case the delay can only be good news, I want this as polished and running as well as possible day 1.

    And Cathay officially tomorrow is nice. Can't wait for the reveal, hopefully with a first look at Ogres, Nurgle or Tzeentch as well.
  • AxiosXiphosAxiosXiphos Junior Member Registered Users Posts: 7,732
    God i really hope the Cathay reveals are interesting; because this has to be one of the most impressively botched pre-release campaigns in the history of video gaming...
