Time of release?

Hey gentlemen, seeing as we are minutes away from 00:00 EST (my time zone), I was wondering if you guys can tell us when the game will be released for purchase?

Or at least just tell me, should I await a release before tommorow morning or just go to sleep :P

Can't wait to try this promising game!

Go to sleep.

The head honchos live in Germany and it's 5 a.m. there, meaning the release isn't exactly imminent. There's no guarantee on what time the game will drop, but I wouldn't suggest waiting around.

And no I don't have an exact time to tell you .. After all this you would think people would learn, but I'll say it once more anyway... when it's ready

But in all seriousness, we would never want to start an uproar by naming a time and then having something out of our hands delay it. Correct me if I'm wrong, but I don't believe OOTP puts exact times on their releases either.

Anyway, get some sleep.. You've got a big day of FHM 2 tomorrow

Good point, most releases that include a release time have people complain if it's delayed by a minute, I'll keep an eye out tommorow!

We never give out a time for the release as other factors then just us are involved but I can say that the final build is ready to go and the game will be available later tonight.

Sebastian's in Germany, so I think he means sometime in the next 5 - 12 hours.

Yeah, I barely slept 6 hours, I'm way too hyped atm. I just hope it gets released before/during noon. I've followed this game for a couple months, I can't wait until it gets released!

I'm not sure what the time difference is between Germany and Toronto, but the fact that he's saying it will come out "tonight" rather than "today" doesn't bode well.

I'm guessing we still have many hours to wait.

Gentleman, no sense getting all stressed out about the time of release. Basically there are other factors outside of Out of the Park Developments that dictate when the game can go live at this point. So it's not as if we are simply withholding the game for the sake of it - we want it to go live ASAP just like everyone else.

But if Sebastian had said it will be up later this morning and it wasn't, people would be upset. If he said it will be up later this afternoon and it wasn't, same thing.

Saying later tonight is the safest prediction right now. And if it comes sooner, maybe then people will be pleasantly surprised!
