"Lost" might be a little strong, "hibernating" or "redirected" might be better. People have a short attention span even more so if you are talking about the Internet, if something new and shiny isn't dangled in front of them often they loose interest, which is fair as the Internet has made us into a society of spoiled children (myself included in that statement). As for why no new news, that's simply "legal reason" it's like how a AAA studio might lie by omission or deny rumours even if they are true. That or something similar is probably the case here. Thought I will admit this company does have a terrible habit or giving rough deadlines when it's probably safer to just play the blizzard card of "it will be out when its done" rather then give people something to quote later when it doesn't hit that vague deadline. For example, I'm not gonna go hunting for the exact quote but, I believe it was mentioned that this newest update should come out within two weeks as it was mentioned to be due in July or early August. Probably wasn't the greatest idea cause if it doesn't get released then, for whatever reason, those placated by that quote will start accusing the devs of being liars and cheats as some already are for their original "vague" release date of the game and for the quality/workability/features that would be avalible at said vague date. I for one won't complain, I say let them do their thing and so long as a product is completed at some time in the future my expectations will be satisfied. Then again if you gave up more then 35 bucks for this game… eh do what you will just try not to make slanderous remarks based on opinions and not facts, these are people after all who also need to work for a living, I don't know about you but I would fine it EXTREMELY stressful if my boss was breathing down my neck everyday for problems that aren't entirely my fault.
