ZOMG REAL SC3

Ahh, vague omens and mysterious portents. Tangled webs of fate intertwined with the branches of destiny, blown by the capricious winds of happenstance. News, news....uh, actually there is some news!

And I was the lucky one to have posted in the news thread.
I feel honoured, and chalk this up as a small, but difficult achievement.
Life goes on. Thanks for the honour.
But the exciting stuff is, that THERE WILL BE A CANON SC3!

So excited!

Well, it took only a couple of months before this got caught up in legal limbo, and the stories of suits and countersuits overshadowed the announcement completely. We've been discussing that for nearly a year as well, and I'm guessing we will be for several more to come. Maybe once that's wrapped up, we can hopefully get back to talking about this again.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but Apparently, one part of the legal agreement was that they couldn't talk about it till summer this year so maybe we'll see something in the near future once we enter that time period.

edit Don't remember who told me this I'm thinking it's most probably false now. edit

The main points of the settlement are here: https://dogarandkazon.squarespace.com/b ... -to-win-is

The settlement itself will not be published, but the main points are in that topic.
I know they returned to a TfB project because of the legal issues, and hence wouldn't be able to free themselves for another few years. But the topics they mention contain no time limit.

Edit:
the only reference to a "quiet period" I found in this article: https://arstechnica.com/gaming/2019/06/ ... and-honey/ , 3rd paragraph from the end, but no specifics are mentioned.

Draginol (Brad Wardell) mentioned it on Discord when I asked post-settlement

I'll post what I said verbatim on reddit:
They're legally obligated by the settlement to stay quiet about any UQM sequels for 2 years from the settlement date.

So June of 2021.

I just realized you could link straight to the discussion in question so you don't have to rely directly on my screenshots...
