I know I'm on the pessimistic side here...maybe they'll surprise me.

Somebody tell me I'm wrong, please, and why I should be more optimistic.
Because just two weeks ago Markus posted that development is ongoing...

Until then please keep the discussion friendly. Thanks!

Sure that sounds great, but I can remember the same things being said for Kojima's "Silent Hills" or "Star Wars 1313." That's the territory we're in. With such little substance it is not surprising that people are more pessimistic than ever with this game.

With Jim's history, IE being quiet during development, speaking when there is something to say, and multiple versions of the game being released, it is surprising that people are pessimistic

Folks, I have some great news. Through a special "mind meld" technique that I have developed, I was able to communicate with Jim telepathically last night. I asked him for an update, and here's what he communicated:

Project is going well, we are still meshing FOF code to OOTP's interface so no screen shots yet. We've been working hard on this. We still don't have a release date, but as soon as we have one we will tell you.

And yes, I can confirm that is exactly the situation! Let me add that the upcoming release of OOTP 20 and the limited size of our team does not help with the progress of FOF. I can guarantee you that any relevant news about FOF will be posted HERE. No post = no news. Thank you for your understanding

Wait... Isn't anyone impressed about my ability to telepathically communicate?!

Well, I'm afraid it works as it always works. You claim you can communicate telepathically, but the truth is that you just said the obvious

So basically FOF has to wait behind OOTP 20, when is OTTP20 out then? Almost a year ago markus posted OOTP FOF coming soon, should have read ,it might come out this decade!

Why would they release the football game in the offseason? It doesn't make sense. What other sports games are released during the offseason or at least the start of the offseason? NONE.

They all wait until people are excited about the new season and release their games prior to the start of the season or shortly thereafter. Why would this be any different? I said it before. I see this as a massive positive that they're not rushing some shoddy product out just to appease folks that are bitching on a forum. I'd rather see them release a completely reliable product and I'm confident that we will see the new game for the 2019 season. Plus, maybe this will give them plenty of time to include MP in v1 which IMO will be well worth the wait.

Work on FOF is still progressing. Not as fast as we would want to, because we have to work on OOTP 20, which will be released in March 2019.

Can you give us a 6 month window on when the new game is expected to be released? If not just give us something to keep our enthusiasm please?

Maybe because it's not football season?

You're wrong.
Unfortunately, Jim has to work all alone on this at the moment, because we released PT two months ago and will release OOTP 20 next month and that is just a huge work load for the rest of the team.
Jim is posting new screens every week in our internal forum tool, but we cannot post them in the public, because the graphics designer did not work on them yet. If we post them now, we just get a lot of unnecessary discussions, because they are not final (graphics wise). We'll post details when the beta starts.
No news here means that the situation did not change. All is said, I'll close the thread, and I'll watch the posts on this forum attentively. No trolling please Thank you for understanding.
