Our team had requested that we let the forum know the what and why's behind the lack of information.

 

We've moved to a much more structured approach and July was a major internal milestone for us. This milestone gets reviewed next week, and the results of that review will be released as a devblog. This will give more information to everyone about where the project is at and where it is going.

 

Why the lack of information?

 

Development pace has been very rapid and as information gets prepared for a devblog, inevitably things change. Furthermore, things get fixed and added at different times - so it means it is hard to find a time when everything is committed at once.... except for milestones. Hence, we will be releasing the devblog based on the milestone review.

 

Does this mean it the public alpha is beginning?

 

No, it does not. But what it does mean is that next week, you will be fully briefed on the current milestone and the steps from there onwards.

 

Why do this?

 

We realize that the community are stakeholders in the development, and we've been trying to come up with a method for providing information that works within our development process. We are now at the point where we can follow this. Interest has gotten... rather agitated lately and I think the best thing is to provide some clarity as to our process for next week and beyond.

 

Seriously though, does this mean the alpha is happening?!

 

No, it does not. There is no set release date. When an alpha candidate passes it's milestone review, it will be released.

You think you're real smart. But you're not smart; you're dumb. Very dumb. But you've met your match in me.

No you don't you NEED DayZ, you need: water, food, shelter, clothing

you WANT DayZ and you ain't getting it until Dean thinks his baby is beautiful enough for people to touch it....wait, scratch that stable enough and has enough content to support the hundreds of thousands of people going to buy it on release.

Both of your 2 posts are you bitching about wanting the SA, NOT a good start.

Cheers for that. Was in the process of copying and pasting all your Reddit info in a thread here.
 
Also
 

The review will be using gameplay footage.

I said we will review the situation internally, and that I expected/hoped that we will release within two months. But I also said that we will delay it until such time as it goes into alpha, there is still no release date.


It's not that hard to find all the answers to your incredibly repetitive/monotonous questions you know..

I apologized for confusing language associated with that and committed to not doing that in the future. Which is really what this whole topic is for.
