Update on Release Date

Post by George Geczy »

(Apologies for the cross-posting between here and the Steam Discussion page)

Updates regarding the SR2030 Release Date:

The Supreme Ruler 2030 code base is 97%+ done, and at this point we're working on more content, polishing the GUI, testing, and so on. In prior games we would often plan more content as free updates after release, however Steam is less friendly to that sort of release/update plan this days. For example, our initial plan was to release SR2030 with Sandbox maps and then add Campaigns as a free update post-release, but we've instead decided to finish four Campaigns and include them with launch. So this content work has pushed our release timeline.

We are also taking the opportunity to do more testing and polishing. Players who have been with us through previous games know that we will continue supporting our games long past release (Supreme Ruler Ultimate got free updates for over six years), but now a lot of players expect more on launch day and are less patient for updates. Admittedly a lot of developers abuse that trust and have shipped a lot of day zero crap, so players are justified to be a bit skeptical, and I think that means that we need to be more careful too. We are determined not to be "that guy" that ships a hundred bug fixes in the first week.

We will update you all on the release window when we have it better nailed down, but for now "it will be done when it's done". I mean hey, we've been working on various Supreme Ruler franchise games for 40 years now, so what's a little more time?

We do plan on releasing updates on game features more regularly from now on (developer vlogs etc), so watch for our Steam News Announcements for what's new.

Thanks as always to all our supporters and Supreme Ruler fans, we're working on making sure we release the best game we possibly can. We'll keep you informed and updated on our development progress, and we hope that you continue to join us for the ride.

-- The BattleGoat Team.

We do have one important request - if you haven't yet, add SR2030 to your Steam Wishlist. Mention it to your strategy-game loving friends to do the same. It helps us a lot. https://store.steampowered.com/app/2093 ... uler_2030/

Thanks for keeping us updated, and thanks for shipping the game only when its finished and the major bugs are fixed, that's not something us grand strategy players can take for granted these days ;)
Really appreciate it and looking forward to the coming updates, already wishlisted SR2030 ofc! :)
