@solaire Ah...I was there before the game was released, and I was still there half a year after release, only increasingly silent because some guys did nothing but spamming the forum with whiny posts. BTW I played another campaign run of BFGA1 only a week before they announced the new game.
It's the same for most FHI games, so I am pretty sure it is more a publisher thing here. A friend of mine works for a rather successful indie games studio (6 employees, him included) and they are really, really working hard to communicate as much as possible with their (potential) consumers. I think the Tindalos crew is painfully aware of this, too.
