So, I figured id make a consolidated post of what few scraps of information we have. Anyone feel free to correct me on any points or add to them as well, so that we can keep this accurate
As of January 2018, the EE of the game is not released, has no target release date, and has had no information or clarification given, save that it is "still under development"
Community team has posted several responses that say very little, beyond the game still being under development
Community team is working on a "communication plan" which they anticipate will go into effect "early this year"
aside from that............... basically nothing
