If Obsidian is coding the patch for your game's authentication, surely that decision of whether it is playable online has been decided? Why the secrecy? :-?
Keep them in the dark and feed them BS..
We wouldnít feed you BS. The reason that Iím not able to say more at this time is that I donít want to say that some functionality will be there until Iím personally sure itís working in the game. Since Ossian isnít coding this functionality (only helping to direct its implementation), and Atari along with Obsidian are the ones coding it, then itís very much dependent on them to implement it.
Alan is almost confirming MoW's delay is due to Obsidian optimizing something with patch 1.12 or making fixes for proper integration before allowing MoW to be released. Possibly the recent plan for 6 week timeline from Obsidian justified this.
