It was more than seven months after the last screenshot. over six months, we have not heard any news about X Rebirth. I think this is not a great work to put a couple of pictures At least once a month. unless of course over the game has someone working.

It's not hard at all to do a screenshot, but who says they are allowed?

DeepSilver, like most publishers I assume, has to sign off on content that goes out to the public.

I think that's how things work. Confused

very funny. hundreds of games come out every year and they all spread the video, screenshots and brief spoilers to maintain public interest in the game! I see no reason to forbid it to do.
I do not know in what universe deathly silence may generate interest to the game.

The reasons why the screenshots stopped are well stated in the screenshots thread. If you can't look it up then that is your problem.

Lol be nice, people are just bored and frustrated with the lack of new info and have resorted to starting threads about.... well anything really.

Besides its fun seeing the X fan-boys (the ones who think no matter what happens Egosoft can do no wrong and must be defended till their dying breath) flame them and tell them its ready when its ready.

With no new info what else are we going to read on the forums. Rolling Eyes

Btw... nice poll you may as well ask do we want the game to be released now. Laughing

actually technically it can be quite hard to do screenshots, depending of the state of the game.

afterall, alot of promo screenshots will have time to setup the scene in game so it can show everything they want to show, rather than just a random screenshot you can take while playing the game.

also, thats with a finished game, with an incomplete game, its much more difficult as you could still have alot of debug stuff on display that you wouldn't want to show in screenshots

To reply to the poll itself, I would say that the next Rebirth screenshot I really want to see is the loading one as the game opens on my PC. Anything that slows that down now is not on my wish list.

To reply to the thread title, I would say that the volunteer who negotiated and set up the previous lot of screenshots probably lost the will to try to continue because of all the outright demands, grief and ingratitude that he ended up with (alongside some genuine appreciation though).

A hint to all though, if this turns into another general more info, release date or moan thread then its life expectancy is short.

Without new screenshots, we can nurture the conspiracies everyone needs to pass time. Everyone loves conspiracies.

More screenshot Smile that's my answer Smile

Personnaly i'm frustrated about one thing.


The communication about the marketing campaign.

First :
Tons of informations about the game at the Gamescom + a screenshot of the week on forum. Everything is good and everybody are happy and impatient about the game.

Second time :
No more information, X rebirth wasn't at the next gamescom, no screenshot. nothing at all except a small interview with bernd that reveal near from nothing.
I mean "Yes this will be beautifull, Yes you will be able to launch missile, Yes think expand etc ..." --> 0 spoiler revealed.

Third time :
Ego said they cannot reveal any more information because the marketing campaign isn't started, and then nothing new. (don't talk to me about the christmas newsletter, it was just a mini translation of the bernd interview)

My question is :
Why stopping all the communication so abruptely. How can they tell us that the marketing campaign isn't launched after this first big step at the gamescom...

That's where i'm actually frustrated... I really didn't understand. And this afraid me in a certain way.

Hopefully they told us that the developpement is in progress and maybe it is all we need to know... So enjoy and wait for news ?...

.. and on that note, there is nothing here not already being said in the release date thread etc so this can slide away. I did warn about that.
