Summary to the hopeful

forge was pushed back and we dont even know if it will actually release in that time frame.
season 2 was extended by 4 months
split screen was cut

to me it sounds like they want to minimize their workload and take things slow. going as far as cutting planned content. it feels like they dont even care.

To me, the sign that they manage to reach a steady rhythm is if we get monthly drop pods. Both September and October into November. Even if they are small updates. We missed one month, if they manage to update consistently every month then we know their pace.
