The bad news is that Ascension 2 will not launch by the end of 2015. The good news is that it will be out by the end of January 2016. In the meantime, feel free to try the beta.
So what’s the story with the delay? At this point, the game is done- at least, as done as it’s going to get. What’s not done is the documentation, the companion story, the packaging and the promotion. I feel it’s better to give myself time to make this a decent launch than to just quietly push it out the door. In other words, I need some time to get the game out there.
