Uber doesn't tell us what they're working on anymore. :-(
This post is mainly in reaction to this: https://twitter.com/Ekanaut/status/516800419628974080
As well as the numerous other indicators scattered around that Uber's doing something... interesting...
Probably making a decision on what to rename the T1 tank to just to troll us.
Either a big chunk of PA update, like server or savegame. Or even better, an SMNC or MNC Sequel development. Or it could be a content patch to keep Toy Rush fresh.
Who knows? Uber does the job they must to walk the fine line of a development company.
I wish they started making friday streams again...
The hype intensifies.
A big PA-update would be amazing (and explain the relative silence), but i'd guess Uber is revealing another project.
Now, a few weeks after PA's launch, would be the logical time to make an announcement.
Now, a few weeks after PA's premature release and people wondering if Uber's abandoning PA, would be the absolute worst possible time to make such an announcement.
Agreed, but it could be part of a normal process, depending on the sales of PA. You can't have a studio working on a single game post-launch for an eternity. And getting a game on rails takes time, pre-production predates full development quite a bit.
I'm curious. Ekanayake's twitter profile obviously points in the direction of a VR-game, was something announced up to this point?
My guess is a major update to both PA and Toy Rush (@Ekanaut was/is a dev for that game)
There's more than one game team at Uber.
I think that they got a nice bunch of Custom Commanders to put in the armoury ;-)
"We like to do things all at once"
I'm expecting big things...
Improvements to naval, orbital, server performance, the unit cannon and asteroids
Reads like both: Toy rush, maybe yet another new mobile something game (I mean toyrush IS sort of pretty finished isnt it?) AND something PA related.
Btw @brian and Stuart in your first couple of posts in the thread - Uber are moving away from communication via forums but will be adopting a strategy akin to that of Valve whereby they'll update their various and respective blogs a few days before a BIG happening.
The forums have become far too messy and sifting the legit conversations from those which quite frankly, well....aren't, is just incredibly difficult now. Expect to see the dev interaction move onto those blogs therefore. I.e. PA's website for example.
Thus this tweet is just the beginning
(Also shows that valve's model of communication does work)
Viva La Hype-a!
Do we know yet if we are hyping for a good thing?
Isn't brad just PA's community manager? I don't recall him doing marketing for the rest, so that seems to show that it is just a PA thing.
Also uber has been very quiet of late. So something must be coming down the tubes, maybe server
Why does this sound like you know something! You are one of us! TELL US
There is no way uber abandon Pa just yet. I really hope a big update will come. It is about time. I happy for every single balance update and so on, but I am waiting for new units, planet/biome types and new mechanics.
I miss the Friday streams as well. I kind of want to hear stuff from mavor himself again and more from steve thompson. Although I can understand uber being silent, as some folks here really lost their patience and respect towards the staff.
Anyway, lets hope the big news will something have to do with PA.
