I still will never understand why asking for an update is so taboo. On content that was promised.
Because, when they have to go back on a promise, they don't hear the end of it, even when it's out of their control.
That's just common knowledge.
Look at TERA. To this day they still get complaints on censoring, and they never promised they wouldn't censor it (and I'm one of those who was against the censoring).
