Agree with you that we are not owed anything by the dev team. MMOs are huge projects and I’m sure that VR team is fully up to the task. They have the experience and, hopefully, the required resources to take this project to its desired end.
Maybe you’re right about the timings part as well. Perhaps the focus is on releasing info selectively to get maximum traction at investor level. If that is the case, then good for them.
But surely our relationship with the VR team is not a master-dog relationship, where we wait for a ‘bone’ thrown in our direction. We’ve all seen many projects with immense amount of hype in the early stages that soon fizzle away, burn-out.
We’ve probably missed the opportunity that COVID presented, where everyone had plenty of time with little to do. The VR team couldn’t really have planned for that. Maybe the next best thing is to ensure regular and frequent info sharing which will keep the hype flame burning.
