Cindy made this post yesterday for the Socom community. I will tell you that she has an extremely tough position. She want to give us more but the powers that be will not let her.
I know you are waiting to hear more today about the upcoming patch and DLC. Unfortunately, I was unable to get any assets to share with you this week. But I am still working on it and hoping I get something to show you soon. I’m sorry I said that I would try to have that for you this week. I hate disappointing you.
I guess we also need to talk about the “end of summer” issue. I think it must be pretty obvious by now that the patch and DLC are not ready yet and will not be released before the end of summer. I’m very sorry to have to disappoint you.
As you are all aware, Patch 1.5 took much longer to publish than we had anticipated. In our original schedule, we thought targeting the end of summer for the DLC was reasonable. But it just didn’t work out that way and I’m really sorry about that.
Some of you get very frustrated when we don’t give you an estimated time of release for these things. I have seen numerous posts in the past asking us to just let you know our target time frame. Well, that’s what we did in this case. We let you in on the schedule we were hoping to implement. Now we have to come back and say we were wrong and have disappointed you. This is just one of those “rock and a hard place” situations. If we hadn’t given you a time frame, people would have been upset. This time, we did give you one and unfortunately couldn’t hit it and I think people are more disappointed than ever.
I know you are anxious to hear more about 1.6 and DLC. As we sort out the new time frame and are able to plan a little bit, I am very hopeful that you will be seeing more info rolling out. Believe me, the folks around here have heard how upset you are and are trying to get things moving. I know you have waited a long time for all of this already. But I have to be the one to tell you that you have to wait a little longer.
We will not be announcing another time frame for the patch or DLC again until we have solid dates that we are very sure of. Once we reach that point, you will see it announced on the blog.
Again, at this point, I can only apologize that there has been this delay. And believe me, I am just as anxious to get you new information as you are to get it. So the moment I am given the go ahead to share anything with you, I promise I will do that.
