Pretty straightforward, I'm sure some of us have read the article here on MMORPG.com wherein DBG's response was mainly "when we have something, we'll let you know"
I can kind of understand what they're getting at, as they've been getting a lot of heat because of how the game, and perhaps more so, the community has been handled. However, I'm not 100% sure this might be a good idea. Again, I understand where they're coming from, and they probably did not know what kind of burden they were getting when they decided to take over the EQ IP. But keeping the audience in the dark for too long isn't going to help your cause either.
I've heard more often than not, that since most of what we keep seeing is just concept art after concept art within the workshop shows, it lends people to believe that DBG is way behind in terms of progress (I don't know, don't ask, I'm not the one who made the comment). One such comment though, was pretty valid, in that, in as long as this game is supposed to be in the works, why has so little been revealed in terms of races. How is it possible that they don't have 3D concept even for those, as these should usually be the first out the gate. Honestly, I think this is a valid question. As a 3D modeler/animator (for short films mainly) I do have to scratch my head at this, as this is usually job one for me as well, and it's typically the one you want done right out the gate.
I don't know, perhaps this is all just too much over my head, but I can't help but wonder. Don't get me wrong, I do want this game to succeed badly, mainly because I was around for the first EQ and loved my experiences in that Norrath. But at the same time, I don't want to let my rose colored glasses blind me either.
