You know, it's not like I want to post every file I get from the agency as corrupted, but I've been on this global internet for say, a month or two and I'm still trying to get my head around computers in general. So give me some slack and help me interpret this file I got from one of my industry spooks, might give us some links between Sigsawa and that no face group we've heard rumors of. -Black Ops Pilot ███████ "FlyAwayNow" ██████

To both guests: Early Access and full release DO NOT HAVE CONFIRMED RELEASE DATES. They'll go up when they'll go up. If Early Access goes up the 4th of July, then it'll go up the 4th of July. If not, don't claim that they lied to you, because they didn't tell you anything in the first place. At the very least, I didn't see any confirmation of July 4 anywhere.

well, AFAIK the wikia noted the July 4 release date as "Based on a discussion between timeSymmetry and Iceberg which took place on June 5"

When it comes to development, if dates are mentioned, it's best to treat them as tentative; confirmed or not.

Even when the Alpha was originally set for 20 June, it was still delayed to the 25th.

I am sorry I couldn't give it a 10/10 out of euphoria; but this is still an alpha; I am glad that such a ace combat pandora box has been opened; i was very pleased, really; and the only reason i cannot be more precise is the state of advanced sleep deprivation my brain is suffering from. The musics seem sometimes to be out of place and we can barely see what the entire game will be; but...... This is a godlike game. Really. I have never been so hooked on a game this "young" since years. Not even…
