Default SiN II annoucnement in XX days?

http://www.ritual.com/splash/

i may have to buy a new computer

from bluesnews

The Ritual Entertainment Website now offers a redirect to this teaser page that seems to be a countdown of some sort, as the page currently sports a ginormous 18. Proceeding through to the main page reveals that the tribe is also launching a playtester program open to those 18 years or older in the Dallas, TX area willing to come in and contribute opinions about their works-in-progress. Finally, on another possibly related note, both http://www.ritual.com/sin2/ and http://www.sin2.com/ now redirect to LegionPharma, a site that looks like a legit drug company, though researching that trademark suggests this is fictitious, so this could be some sort of viral marketing for a still-unannounced Sin sequel. Thanks Frans.

It's SiN 2.

Wonder what the "14 7" on the splash page means? It could be 14th of July, but the 18 day countdown corresponds to 4th of July, which is a nice launch date.

Notice Ritualistic and LegionPharma likely share the same web host:
www.ritualistic.com = 69.17.116.118
www.legionpharma.com = 69.17.116.124

I can't take it anymore!

Sin2 is in development. It's put on hold. It's been resurrected. That web banner was just a left over. Wait, they're really doing something with it.

Stop toying with me!!

GAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!

Well, I've been waiting for this for years, if it is SiN II that is.
If not, well, we'll see.

Don "onethumb" (sp) McCaskil - Good to see your post and this one....

From Blues News (As the community over there still debates who's fault the bugs were...and miss the point.....)

Quote:
I worked on SiN, so I know of what I speak.

Let's get one thing clear: Ritual worked their heart out to make SiN a great, bug-free game.

Activision, as a public company with shareholders to answer to, needed to meet their quarter. They controlled the purse strings, and both QA time and time for us to polish lost out to making their quarter.

Business as usual. The SiN developers weren't to blame, they didn't have a choice. The Activision & Ritual QA teams weren't to blame, they didn't have a chance. If you'd like to lay the blame somewhere, lay it where it belongs: fickle investors and scared execs.

Luckily, Levelord, ParadoX, and Atkins are still at Ritual. They're oozing with talent over there, and they're hungry for a hit. Sin, if reborn, will rock.
