When do you think B&S will be released?

So yeah that leaves me hopeful for a release in spring/summer next year. Seeing how fast things can go.

More layoffs on the western front. While I see it as "Game is done, have to let go of the excess" it'll be seen by many as being like...
CoH's closure, while I don't think it affected NCSoft as much as CoH players think, was more bad press. And that second article has analysts baffled by the closing of a profitable game (myself, I think they want to move to keeping games that are popular in Korea, and if it's not popular there, not to have it).

They just laid off a group of employees, who were making a profit. That came out as bad press to a lot of people. Not just CoH players.
They're laying off more American employees. And to my knowledge some european employees have been laid off.
While the GW2 lay offs were likely the excess, like I said, soon after the other lay offs, will have people thinking they don't care. And the comments linked to those articles go along with that.
Edit: Also, I said "Bad Press" not "Bad News"

Possibly. However, never underestimate what bad press can do. The phrase "Any press is good press" is not always true. As someone who's been waiting for B&S since I first heard of it, I hope for B&S to be a HUGE success (in America, as I don't play on the KR servers).

Can you elaborate on this? I'm quite curious what happened.
Final Fantasy 13 i would assume but maybe that's just user related.
Something else would be that they hint at a FF7 remake (they ask the fans on twitter if they'd want a remake of FF7 and literally break twitter)
All the delays of FFvs13
Having to remake FF14 from the ground up again
all i can think of right now on square-enix not sure about capcom

The only thing that scares me is with the school tragedy blamed AGAIN on videogames, that NCSoft will rethink their "no censorship" stance
