This all reminds me of this thread from back in 2017, just before OOTP shut down BTS. Lots of people requesting a status update, mum from the developers other than generic statements that development is ongoing. Then eventually the plug gets pulled.

Dude, the "plug got pulled" on BTS, because the lead developer unfortunately passed away.

I'm just as keen to hear something - anything- as everyone else, but I really wish people would stop pointing back to the original BTS and comparing it to this project as if the two are linked in any capacity aside from both being under OOTPD.

We all miss Francis, even us lurkers, but there's some serious revisionist history there. There was a year of BTS as the Michael Winter project with continuous vague promises that the development was ongoing before the plug got pulled.

Right, yes, I didn't go back to read that specific thread to determine what the time line was.

Even still, the Michael Winter era is still not at all tied to Jim Gindin/FOF. As I recall, Winter was also attempting to start something completely from scratch, which is a pretty enormous undertaking (I recall him even like asking people for suggestions on books to read on football/coaching strategy, etc)... So it was probably a bit of wishful thinking by the company that anything would have surfaced at any time within a few years at least of that starting.

At any rate... my point still remains. Yes, the long-term "OOTPD football game project" has been a long time coming, but the current Jim Gindin/FOF era I think needs to be viewed on its own merits/on its own timeline, since that's an established developer bringing an existing game to a new platform, as opposed to someone starting something from scratch. That being said, based on the silence in here I'm not surprised people aren't overly optimistic, either way.

I used to try to scour the internet back in the day looking for a cool game. Now we just expect to see something new and/or informative as soon as we jump on.
I am a beta-tester for the baseball side but had an epiphany this summer after open-heart surgery at 54. Patience. Don't be in such a rush to get the newest or latest. If what you want isn't there but a decent facsimile is, get that. Enough of this BS back and forth. I remember having to wait in the mail for a Lance Haffner football game that I had ordered or checking the back pages of the Sporting News to see if there was a neat new game or when the new Strat-O-Matic cards were coming out.
Let's just relax and when we get some new information, be happy that it isn't dead, or that at least, you aren't.
Ha! Yazfan - you reminded me of when Johnnie Lemaster got traded from the NL to the AL then back to the NL before half our league even knew about it (especially the guy who wanted to dump him but blew his chance!!!). It was definitely the 'Lack of Information Age'.And getting those strat cards via snail mail was better than Christmas day when they arrived. Thanks for your perspective (as other notables have already thanked you for).
