I gotta check, but I think they are doing some alpha testing?

I backed this game way back when....I am cautiously optimistic, but have been burned too many times to be over-excited until there is an actual game to play.

Hopefully this will be a winner!  :)

I haven't really been following along, I confess, but I tried to find information to answer Gith.

I see nothing new. The FAQ mentions alpha and beta "are planned for 2017", future tense. The usual "no promises: disclaimer too so it's unclear whether they actually ARE in alpha, let alone beta.

Though backers would presumably have a notice since some levels include access to earlier development.

After Landmark, I am dubious about backing something in any anticipatory fashion.

Needless to say, with outdated info on the alpha/beta, I didn't see anything about an actual release date.

Yeah it may be a small thing, but it bothers me that the new class pages are in a different style, format, and content than the pages for the previously released classes. It makes me think there is a change in team responsibilities/personnel and a lack of cohesive oversight of execution.

There was also a dearth of recent activity on things like the Visionary Realms Facebook page (nothing since October 2017).

I was about to write the project off as vaporware, but I did find some pre-alpha footage from April 2018.

So apparently it is still creeping along, in pre-alpha, and may come out some day...

Apparently Jim Lee, famous comic artist who used to be the X-Men guy back in I guess the 90's, and was a founder of Image, was a big EQ fan.

He got hooked up with Brad, and also posted a video of them playing a couple months back.

Timing means very little to me here...that they are just in early Alpha now, but planned to be where they are now in 2017...seems to be about the best case scenario for these MMO developments. That said, Vanguard got shoved out the door incomplete due to finances, and it probably ruined what might have been a fantastic game with a long and glorious run. That, or even this ending up vaporware, is still very possible for Pantheon in my opinion.

But it could be good too. Time will tell. I don't even care if this is released in 2018...2019 is fine. Just produce a good and playable game...bugs will be found and fixed, but it should be decently playable. Don't toss it out unfinished please!
