Yeah the delay hit us harder than we'd really like to admit so we're trying to get some more visually obvious fixes in there before release.

No plan survives contact with the enemy, said someone famous. Aren't surprise and change par for the course?
That "someone famous" was an Armored Officer- they never planned ahead- claiming they planned "on the move". The rest of us knew the "5 P's: Prior planning prevents poor performance; or, Poor planning produces poor performance.

Also I have a question on encirclement: Does any opening in the envelopment REGARDLESS OF DISTANCE to the nearest supply source allow resupply; i.e., is supply distances from their sources infinite?

Are there any more information about the timeline you can share?
Will it release this year? How many more Beta phases will there be? When will be the next Dev Diary?

I was really excited, because I loved panzer general and panzer corps, but the lack of updates makes me wonder if the game really will release soon...

We're deep into early beta. There's still functionality to go in so lots of testing still to be done. We're starting to get some actionable beta reports so hopefully testing will improve over the coming months.

Some hardware issues set us back a couple of weeks but we're back on track.

Thats about all I can say. I don't think anyone is in a position to give a release date and even an estimate would be foolish.

Ok, so 'deep in early beta' and 'features to go in' - so 2021.
Because beta comes after feature freeze and serves for tuning performance and bug fixing. You are forgetting that probably half the people here are IT.

We've only ever had a beta forum so its always been called beta even though technically, yes its alpha. We have said that before though maybe that was only in the beta forum. The functionality currently missing isn't essential for release but should be in sometime in October. Then yes, if you want to split hairs, we'll be in beta.

Ok, cool - I don't mind late, as long as it's all clear. In that case I expect beta phase to take on another 3-4 months until we can have RC. So Christmas this year would even be possible in theory, but more realistic is Spring 2020.

They don't seem to be excited about building interest in this game. I wonder if it will come out this year?
