Looks like 2019 will be a bit of a race

KyleranKyleran Member LegendaryPosts: 31,002
and perhaps even a photo finish.

In recent weeks the Dev leads for Ashes and CU have confirmed they are trying to launch by the end of 2019.  

As CF always seems to be 18-24 months out current backer estimates put it in this same window.

Just for fun, (since betting would be illegal) which title do you think will win the race?

If you like, post in the thread why you think so and / or which one (s) you would play first were they all to launch close (1-2 months) to each other.

I listed them in alphabetical order so there could be no accusations of poll bias. Enjoy.

 ;)

    Star Citizen is releasing both titles Q1 2019.  You can bet the farm on it! ;)

    I backed CU and Crowfall.  I actually think CF will softlaunch first.

    The thing you don't realize is that you don't want to be first, as the first of those games to launch is going to be terrible.

    Never been much on waiting for launches - too many games already that I dont have time for.

    I will give them all a shot - if they are good - I will play them, if they suck, I won't. I backed some but am not invested in their success.

    I always set my expectations really low - and maybe I get pleasantly surprised.

    I don't see any other way but this. When did digital entertainment become Soccer teams and a large group of gamers turned into hooligans? I read these forums and many a time the discussions seem more like a heated debated between Atheists and Religious thinkers. Are people confused about why we do this and have forgotten this was always about just having fun?

    Yes but there were other games listed with notations that their release in 2019 was unlikely.

    I'm not entirely sure, but I think these games have claimed to be released in 2019 but Pantheon hasn't.

    The devs who "race" will end up with a shitty final product.  Hopefully none of them do.

    I'm not following either of those titles, but I think City of Titans is hoping to be in beta form in 2019, though I could be wrong there. I don't think this is a secret, either :)

    Personally the only modern MMORPG trend that annoys me is the idea that MMOs need to be designed in a way to attract people who don't actually like MMOs. Which to me makes about as much sense as someone trying to figure out a way to get vegetarians to eat at their steakhouse.

    Truth is I originally intended to list 3, Ashes, CF, and CU as serious contenders for a 2019 year end launch.

    I threw in the others in keeping with my tongue in cheek "unbiased" poll options.

    Guess I couldn't think up anything clever to say about Pantheon,  it just keeps chugging along.

    Putting Vanilla WoW in there is kind of unfair.   Thats going to win.
    My guess for the Crowdfunding guys is Crowfall first.

    The only one we can pretty much bet on is WoW, everything else has been delayed, postponed, cashshop whored and back rewarded to death.

    OK you are freaking me out now. I am again having a donut while reading this. And I only had just these 2 donuts in more than a year. 

    We are officially donut brothers now.

    All over the world gamers were inexplicably eating donuts at higher than normal rates.

    In related news Dunkin Donuts stock soared defying analysts predictions.
