Hello all!

Production on Revision 1.0 is finished. Some of you are wondering why we aren’t shipping yet. We’re addressing that today.

A while back we started incorporating tech into Revision that was a step beyond what anyone had ever done with this game. We implemented engine-level bug fixes and tweaks for the game’s rendering system, such as allowing decals (e.g. bullet holes) to appear in mirrors, ensuring footstep sounds occurred correctly, and increasing the limits for BSP geometry to ensure that our environments could be more detailed and more stable. We started using portions of what has been named the Revision Framework (so named because we led to its creation, not because it is exclusive to the inner workings of our project), a piece of tech that makes it relatively easy to expand on the game’s content and systems. We are quietly working on RF, intending for it to be released to the DX modding community.

Concerning the game's content, we have tied in continuity threads to the official entries in the franchise in the form of emails, logos, and other references. We also discovered some potential copyright problems in both our in-game and promotional graphics; we’ve been very busy reworking things to make sure those don’t become troublesome later on.

All of this lead us to feel extremely cautious- we want to ensure that when we release, there are no potential land mines waiting for us. So we approached Square Enix with the intent of making sure that everything we had planned was going to be fine. They’ve been very helpful and supportive; the processes has gone on longer than anyone anticipated, and we're taking advantage of the time to implement little fixes and bits of polish that were otherwise slated for the 1.1 update. On the one hand, we would love to get Revision out the door ASAP. On the other, we’re committed to making sure that we can release it and maintain it in the best possible way, and with as few stumbles as possible.

Thank you for your continuing support and patience. We almost have everything in place. And the satellites are ours when we need them.

[July 9 Update]

A few of you have been expressing concerns that Revision is related to Mankind Divided or will be a paid-for release. Neither of these things is the case- we have no involvement in the promotion of Mankind Divided, and have never considered making Revision a commercial product. We are not providing precise release dates for a pretty straightforward reason: We're holding some confidential talks with Square Enix to make sure everything is okay, and to make something cool happen, something that we aren't talking about yet, because it's not finalized yet. We've been having a series of back-and-forths to make sure that everybody on our team is happy. There are no real problems, just technicalities that have needed to be ironed out. At this point (July 9), we're expecting these things to be wrapped up shortly.

Everything is pretty much OK, and we're in a position where we have to talk to some people to make some things happen, and the timeline for making those things happen should be pretty fast, but is partially out of our control. All we ask of you is to please be patient.

The Drama on here is pathetic AF. I mean people bringing up posts from a year ago and saying things like "I am leaving for good" and "I should stop checking here every day then" I mean what is life?

Come on people you think you are speeding this up by bitching at them, if anything you are slowing it down, lowering their motivation to get this done because they have the weight of the public on top of them for it.

Be patient and positive, dont be pushy and let the devs know you support their work. It would go a long way. :)

No. The developers of this mod are not children, I'm sure they can react to questions and criticism like adults (I hope) - don't blame the stalling and shiftiness on the community.

That's not what I was saying. I am just saying bitching at them isn't helping. Constructive questions and input are good. But some people on here are not acting like adults as you put it. That's who that post was aimed at.

Can we not get a SLIGHT hint as to what the surprise going to be, that thing under NDA? I realize you can't say what it is due to NDA, but you CAN provide us a hint or some kind!

The developers have provided hints in the past already. Just check their comments thoroughly, and their recommendations for which version of the game to buy.

To save you some time, they recommend the Steam version even though it's harder to get mods running on the Steam version. Now guess what it could be.
