Observe as I blatantly ignore your reticence to talk about release dates or updates on release dates!
Observe as I- nah, I can't go there.
However, I do recall that you strongly suggested that Summer would be their release. I had little faith in that, frankly, but I hoped it would be soon after. I fear their delay will come so close to SC 3.0's release that they may disappear.
Can anyone assuage this setting fan's fears?
Yeah, summer proved a foolhardy estimation for a number of reasons, and a perfect example of why we don't talk about release dates anymore until things are nearly finished.
Work does continue on the World on Fire releases, and while I won't go into when I think they're likely to release I can say they're still in the offing. Watching the feeds will be your best bet for the latest info as it becomes available.
