Hi all,

I come someting to this forum in order to know when the next release will come ... and i am very sad ! https://forum.egosoft.com/images/smiles/icon_cry.gif because i don't get any news ... I loved playing with X3 XT X3 rebirth X2 the threat etc, and I will be very interesting to get information about X4. Is it possible to send some little topics ? for the fans ?
Thanks

Have you tried reading the sticky threads at the top of the forum? There's quite a lot of information there, including the most up-to-date estimate of when the game is likely to be released.

Nah, we tend not to totally ignore the previous poster, and especially not if it is an Egosoft dev - (well most times anyway). Very Happy

What's the release date?
This is not decided yet, we aim for 2018.

Maybe you were looking for something more specific, but I'm afraid there isn't anything. Smile

@CBJ
Well the last update is from 2017.
I kinda can understand that people do not look there for "latest" informations.

Especially as that information is now 9 months old, while there's only 7 months left in 2018 Razz

Release Date Update Needed ASAP!

You can update it to "Soon*" if you wish, CBJ!

*where "Soon" means within 7 months...

It may be from 2017 but it's still the most recent information. I'm struggling to understand how us giving an "update" that says "the expected release date is still some time in 2018" every month would change anything. Wink

Hey, it doesn't really change anything. But it would still be nice to know whether you're still on track for 2018, or if you're considering delaying to 2019.

Seriously.
People who search latest release information would not look in an old thread. Especially if it is a confusing thread to look for specific informations.
I would say a short FAQ with main infos only would help or at least the expected release on your X4 main page.

I am not sure why knowing a release date "as soon as possible" really helps anyone Wink

Keep your pants on people, and just add the game to your Steam wishlist. Once Egosoft are ready, I am certain they will update a release date on the Steam store page at the same time as notifying on these forums.

@CBJ I understand why you say that. However it's always good too approach these questions from their perspective.

It's a very vague estimate created a long time ago. So tensions and anticipation is rising since from their point of view we're already in the mentioned release window and there has been no to limited information about the game since. It would be natural for them to "panic" and expect the worst.

Expectation management is very important and something Egosoft could really benefit improving in.

Egosofts track record does not help matters. Even though Egosoft always delivers nice products eventually the road to get there however is rocky.

So be patient with your customers and be nice to them if they act out based on the fear of disappointment Wink

(An easy solution would be to do what he asked and create an extra FAQ with max 5 of the most important points and update it monthly, with still on track. Not a bad idea and very low effort, so win win Wink )
