    in 15 years? I dont expect live that long, though in 15years or so the whole Deux EX revolutions will of started, along with with computers in our brains and what not , hell maybe we all become a borg collective at which point we will make hole in the universe and let Species 8472 which will wipe us out.

    As much as i like computer and technology, I dont like where we are going with it. it made lot people lazy I dont like the idea of AI controlling thing in anyway let alone self learning AI, skynet anyone?

    yah im one those people, all this stuff can be used to great benefit, but all it takes one person to use in wrong way to cluster cluck everyone and everything.

    well ai controlling cars if fine with me especially since we are so far away from creating consciousness, this means the ai as we have it today has no ambitions or "wants" it does what it is programmed to do and as soon we can keep it on can keep doing the specific task , for an ai to start a war with humanity must have consciousness and ambition things we can not integrate yet ... at all

    Game development started in 2016. Tools and techs started in 2014. Some early assets started in 2014.

    RDR2 took 8 years and made using existing engine, tools and techs.

    You realize Looby is just here to troll you with the stale tropes he has memorized from the internet. He has no actual interest in the game at all except as a vehicle to argue with someone.

    I'm sorry but I cannot let that comment stand.

    Take long hard look into his past failures. What is worse is he then blamed everybody else in the world except himself.

    It's very playable as of 3.3.0, I jumped in with a crew on a Hammerhead the other day as a turretteer and did a few missions.

    Prior to OCS (Object container system) you couldn't do much online without the framerat being sub20, with 3.3.0 i was pushing 50's and 60's

    Rubbish, the money that went into those games was public money spent on worse preceding products.

    I own this game, but I have never even played it. I got it free with my R9 290 I had a few years ago. I should check it out one of these days.

    To give a short reverse timeline of the beginning:

    • The official development start date for SC is Januar 2013 with the fundation of the first game studio (source: Gamescome 2016 presentation)

    • the game was "funded" with the end of the kickstarter in November 2012 (that why we have the fourth anniversary last month)

    • the firm CIG was funded in April 2012 (sources: their webside)

    • CR said that he worked on the prototpye and preproduction since a year before oktober 2012 (sources: some interviews in that time)
    Therefore there are argement for several stating dates between the end of 2011 and January 2013.

    The game was largely redefined back in 2014. Game development itself was started with Alpha 3 branch.

    and just to add to my other comment can people please stop using the pathetic and tiring argument of you only pay $50 to play and then you can earn everything else in game. Any game that has this pathetic promise of you only ever pay an entry level fee and then you can earn everything else in game will always end up with an in game market where the process and act of earning money turns in to nothing but a grind where it becomes a better option to just fork over real world money to buy the item rather than spend the stupid amounts of time needed to actually earn it in game. Just about every game that has an 'earn it in game economy', but if you want you can pay to have it now, has it's market and gameplay loop tweaked to encourage players to fork out real cash and from the outsiders point of view SC has certainly laid the groundwork early to be another game that will follow this path.

    Your studios you mention are no more than 20-100 employees. I'm pretty sure they have plenty of people to make this game in a timely manner. Truth be told most games don't even make a profit. Studios try to make a name for themselves by making quality games and attract publishing money. Roberts knows this and is just filling his pockets with money now and will never make a game. He said in 2014 the game would be released....nope. In January 2017 he said the game would be released in 2017...nope. And any release date was removed from their web site. This so called beta/game is already a non entity and even if it ever does come to completion and release, it already has a million excuses built in to explain it's miserable failure. I'd rather buy a car from Bernie Madoff than give money to Roberts pie in the sky scheme.
