I really dont think their waiting for 1.6 to be ok...Its not really screwed its Steam that has many errors. But it has already been said that 1.6 will be a regular update and CZ will not coinside with steam. So just add the weapons and things and make a patch.
Everyone's just waiting for the bug squash fest to end and ritual to get it gold. I think it sucks with the lay offs but thats how it goes, no more posts from Voss...he will be missed. I think at the moment we're in the dark from ritual. Not too much said on their part lately. Maybe they kept reading people say, "dont give us a date if your not sure it will be out by then" and decided to keep quiet for a while. Kind of sucks though these forums dont have much info anymore....ill just wait for the game. It should be great.
