Default Expansion Date Speculation

Hello!

I'm relatively new to the community, as I just purchased the game a month or so ago. However, I see that the game was actually announced as early as 2010 and started production in 2012 with an alpha release in 2013. Many of you have been a part of the community for *years* and have a better understanding of Crate's methods, timelines, as well as potentially more candid contact with them.

Therefore, I would like to know what some educated guesses are on the release of the upcoming expansion. Do you think we are looking at early 2017? Middle of the year? Toward the end? Never, and we're just being trolled?

From the latest Development Update:

"As I’m sure the first question on everybody’s mind is just when will you get to experience it all for yourself? We are not quite at a point where we can announce an exact release date, but the current range puts us in Q1/Q2 of 2017. No matter when it releases, you can be sure that it will arrive posthaste."

If it's on schedule they'll let us know nearer release date, if something looks like putting it badly off course they'll tell us that too. So far the latter hasn't happened.

Crate has a good relationship with the game's fan base and always has. So no need for educated guesses or anything else. We'll know when they feel the expansion is nearly ready for release because they'll tell us. Simples.

Solid points; that's why I asked, as I don't have as much history seeing updates come out to know whether Crate is on schedule or typically behind a bit. Definitely good to hear!

actually i'm more interested in 1.0.0.7 hfx 3 release but if i'd have to bet i'd say Q2. devs generally take their time to refine the content before release, so while their estimation are generally accurate (which wasn't much the case at the beginning, august 2013 anyone ? ), it generally falls in the end of the spectrum.
