Camelot Unchained beta delayed
We have bad news for all those who are waiting to try new upcoming MMO game Camelot Unchained. I can’t wait for a game too.
Why bad news? Well, first planned beta test for this game has been delayed on indefinitely, probably till next year. Only reason that founder of City State Entertainment, Mark Jacobs told was a loss of senior programmer.
“After many months of not only searching for the right guy, but [also] negotiations, we thought we had the right guy. On Monday when I did the update, I spoke to him. Everything was great. Monday evening, after the update, I spoke to him. Everything was great,” Jacobs explained.
The next day, Jacobs’ wife underwent surgery, and so he was disconnected from what was happening at the studio. But things went sideways on Wednesday.
“I received an email from the programmer, Kevin, that said that he had received an offer that he just couldn’t turn down. One of those offers that come along once in a lifetime,” he continued. “As you can imagine, I was a bit perturbed. Upset. Disappointed. Mad.”
“When you are working with a small team, the loss of a couple of people can make a huge difference, so it would be foolish for me to say that nothing bad could possibly happen over the next few months,” he said. “On the other hand, things are moving along nicely for the team size we have, and we are pretty confident that we can get an awful lot done before the end of the year.”
