It's an interesting development as the game got a bigger reveal during Nacon Connect 2022, with footage that made it appear the game would be coming out on time. Which at the time was amazing to hear as it felt like this had been in development for the longest time. Now it seems as if Nacon jumped the gun a bit just to have something awesome to show during their stream, as it feels very clear the intended release was not all that set in stone. We'll see what happens next, but honestly, we'd rather they finish the game and not crunch it, even if it means waiting longer for the final product.
