So far it has been delayed indefinetly or canceled. There is atleast a select(By that I mean less than ten) working on various stuff for Sin:E. Most definitly the best know is USEMP.

What really sucked is that I paid full retail amount($50) for mine, because EA(correct me if I'm wrong, but they published it in retail) just wanted to make money and didn't care about the comminuty(like always).

So for all those out there that only paid $19; $14; $9 really got no reason to complain. Its super cheap.

yeah, EA only takes care only of his business. anyway I can't understand how a software house like mumbojumbo is still alive...and where they find money to relieve ritual

My only real question is why? What were there motives to do such a thing and why did ritual keep us in the dark? I just wish we could get some answers. One thing to note. Episode two is on hold or canceled, so if we don't here any news by september/october, then we can asume it have been canceled.

Sorry, but they didnīt learn from SiN 1
And now they did the same faults. Why the hell they put out a Singleplayer Game that no one want? The World was waiting for SiN 2 Multiplayer!!! Oh my good, when i think back to that great Time we had with SiN 1 Multiplayer, it was the best ever. The old Sinners have wait all this years for a part 2 and now that. I canīt believe.
So sit down, finish your SiN 2 Mutliplayer part, release it and you will see that you will sell tons of this game.

i've read about it. but generally when a game is said to be on hold, after some months of silence, it disappear without leaving trace. duke nukem forever anyone?

even without multiplayer i think the idea of making episodes was good, but it isn't easy to have success when HL releases his episode at the same time. the same happened when the first SIN was released if i'm not wrong

Your correct, the public and reviewers alike kept on comparing it with the HL series, because of it being released closely to each other. Which kind of make it unfair, because both Sin games are great and the public got and different view because of reviewers.

i think it was a good idea to open a thread and discuss about this. since there wasn't a thread yet, i decided to create one.

If you read the article MumboJumbo states they WOULD like to return to Sin:E, remember MumboJumbo CEO and fonder is a former Ritualian. Sin:E didn't sell as well as ritual hoped, so I guess they decided to take a break, come back with fresh minds. It not that bad that we might have to wait, as long as their is a community there will be Sin, remember when the sequel was announced on Ritualistic, but never came to pass, the BOOM Sin E surprised us all. This isn't the worst, remember Sin beat DNF out twice. It will come it's just a matter of time

Ya, we got shafted.... BY PIRATES

If the game was actually bought, and Ritual actually made money, then we might actually have a second episode to play.

Let's just start a riot x3

Nah, I'm sure 12,000 angry Canadian complaint letters will make mumbojumbo change their minds x3

... which was for the most part the result of Ritual's own wrongdoing . . .

You are right, if Ritual didn't want people to pirate the game they just shouldn't have released it in the first place.

Dang, this is news to me. I really enjoyed the game even though I have not heard of the earlier games. I was looking forward to having more episodes! Oh well, guess I'll just check back here every few months see if I have anything to look forward to...

You should check out the original SiN and Wages of SiN. They're not as advanced as Sin: Episodes, but they're still fun, especially the banter between Blade and JC.
