Erik, I have been watching for this one for awhile also, through a few deployments, and a few returns home.
Thank you VERY MUCH, for the update. I am glad there still is a light at the end of the tunnel, even if the tunnel still stretches out for some miles lol.
For the record also, I am glad that you did what you did. I have a computer full of Matrix titles, and am glad that THEY were released.
I think (hope perhaps is a better fit) that most of those, including myself, who have complained about this particular title, mostly would be happy with at least an occasional update as you just did, or, even a RIP note saying the project is dead. Your company has always been a class act with customer relations, so it has just been a surprise sometimes to see this particular project just in its own, very quiet world with no commentary from anyone who actually knows. On the other hand, I can also understand the caution of making promises that cannot be kept.
In short.. thanks for what you do with this company, and thanks for the update here. I hope this title will someday come out..perhaps by then I will be retired and have more time to play with it.
