We were told that the backer build would be a “taster”, then it was insinuated that it wouldn’t be happening in order to maximise the effort for the release date…
I really have no problem with the game being put back if the devs don’t think it’s ready yet. A lot of PC games are rushed to meet deadlines and are either missing content or are broken and require months of patching when they are released.
Take your time, within reason.
However given that this is not exactly the first delay will the BB5 be an actual Alpha/Beta of the game?
From a practical point of view it would make sense from 2 points of view
There would be a massively increased QA with many more people playing the unfinished product on various different systems and hardware. Could be useful.
It would make the increasingly apathetic backers a lot happier, just like I felt when Arsenal just signed Nicolas Pepe out of nowhere.
