Don't hold your breath.
We'll all have another birthday before this ever gets released...

Not to them it isn't
I’d rather wait for NL to be done as they envision instead promising a release date and getting something incomplete.

It’s a tiny team that already manages a good handful of things while working on this on top of it all. The current shards already have plenty to do in the meantime.

I forget when it was, but we had a "Midsummer' Night's Dream" event and there were new location. I wonder if this was a glimpse at NL? They teased next even to be a festival.

At this point it's vaporware until they start giving actual demos and laying out implementation details. Right now it's still in the "we're going to do some cool stuff, and it's going to be neat, and there's going to be some things. You trust us, right?"

do you really think all this time is going to go by and they are going to just be like “oh uh we decided to like.... not make the shard anymore. Sorry lol”?

I don’t think we need to see every step of their process while it is in development. They have been doing streams updating us as to how things are going, which is new for them and appreciated. I dont see why we can’t just be patient?

We haven't seen ANY step of their development process. Their streams have been extremely light on demos and details. Given their track record, it wouldn't surprise me if the direction changes and NL doesn't come to pass. They're two years into this now and the details are still extremely light and hand-wavy. How long do we have to be patient before we can expect to see some actionable results?

Hopefully there’s some gameplay in the next stream. They did show some of the seasonal change stuff but that’s not much. I’m just feeling optimistic about the whole thing but I understand there have been some bumps over the years with BS.

lol honestly that’s a really good reply

That wasn’t Broadsword though.
Regardless, I know there’s been some failures in UO history. I just feel like NL won’t drop off like UO2 and KR. If it did, though, dam that would be sad on behalf of BS and UO and would probably get people feeling less confident in the team (than some already are). I’m hoping it works out.

Yeah, just having some fun. It will be interesting to see what comes out of it.

There's actually a few instances of new UOs that never were. Ones where new game play and interfaces were shown off.

Dam! So many false starts. I understand the pessimism a bit more now, especially from the long standing veterans of the game.
