One plus from this is depending on how long Alliance is postponed (if it's ever resumed), DX10 might be an option for the game.


I would die of laughter if that were true. Only because of all those times of Fear/50cal trying to push for Dx10 ...



Hell, I already am :lol:

my god!!!!

THE GAME ISNT COMING OUT!!!!!!

IM GOING RO PLAY DNF

please....!

hell most of you whiners probably are only saying duke nukem because its the in thing to say!
i remember them announcing it!(but for some reason i didnt get exited)

GAMES TAKE TIME TO BUILD.

with sox and evryone getting involved with second life it could open up new technologies for alliance that could make it EVEN BETTER!!!!!
think, there will be some pritty good porgrammers working on that project, and the likes of WMI will influence and be influenced by all of those programmers,

we have seen what the guys can produce off their own backs now just emagine what thyll produce with new ideas being put forward with second life! the possibilites are immense!

this is an oportunity that WMI COULD NOT MISS imo. its a huge investment and could help make the company work in the long run and even help them get the credit they deserve!

give they guys a break. they need our support.


Well said scradge- as I had put it, you guys have seen what we can produce- there were many good reasons we made this move. Just think about it this way- take your thoughts on Alliance, now take your thoughts on Second Life- night and day, right?? Well imagine if the latter begins to approach the former in quality, polish, down right awesomeness, and potential. We're now working with 150+ people who are frankly talented as all hell. It ain't all furries and badly modeled cars. It may look like that now, but this platform is one of the the scariest things I've ever seen- IBM, NASA, Sun, the NBA, Intel, Harvard University- they're all running to set up shop for a reason. Pull Second Life towards your thoughts on Alliance.. BELIEVE ME ;) Five years out we would have been doing very similar things. The power here is sick.

Its cool, i would probably take the money too. Just don't forget about all the fans you have waiting around for Alliance.

Hopefully blackfoot studio's (dev from ravenshield) first person shooter will hold us over until 2010 when Alliance comes out. -dozer

Blaockfoot are people from the original Ghost Recon and Rainbow Six. UBI developed and published Ravenshield with the help of RSE. But yeah I am a regular at their forums. They seem to be really interested in making a tactical fps game the gaming community has been waiting for quite sometime. They have a really open forum and answer most of the questions they can. They also give some teaser screenshots periodically to keep the community interest going. Unfortunately it will be awhile before their unnamed project is released. As they put it, you'll probably see GRAW3 before theirs. So I am guessing Summer of '08 at the earliest. Jsonedecker (one of the main devs) had one of the best quotes I have ever heard for games - "Make a game around a community, don't make a community around a game". Something like that anyways, but it speaks volumes as most publishers make what they want and forget why their premier franchises are premier to begin with. Instead they jump on some bandwagon cliche flavor of the week.

Booo vapourware.

Good luck in your next project. Sad to hear this one didn't come off.
Such is the life of an independant development studio.

who said anything about vapourware.

for crying out loud you guys need to tone down a little.

the impatiance of some of you kids amazes me, you want things NOW!
you never get anything NOW. so calm down and keep your juvenile mouth held shut until they confirm the game is dead!

you never have anything constructive to say do you baff?

Considering how alliance doesn't have anything in common with second life.. I thnkt hat they're focusing on second life at all... I don't know.. I mean, alliance was going fine the way it was..



It was the most revolutionary FPS game ever concieved and the fact that it has been lost to Second Life.. Oh my godl...



This doesn't mae any sense.. I mean, Alliance was going great, why did they drop everything to go help secondl life? Thousands of gamers out there would have really liked to see Alliance..

I stil can't acept this.

BLAHHH!!!!

God dammit Arcadia, they were a company that just happened to be making a game. They got a client, who now is essentially their boss. Why cant you get it though your thick skull that their entire existance was not wrapped around Alliance?

And no, it is not lossed you fool, have you not been paying attention? Its on standby until they finish working for Linden Labs.

The fact is that there is no secure to stop the work they have done since 2000-2001. That have now been published in sometime at 2005-2006 and ideas given away to the bigger game companies out there. There is no secure that some of this companies make a greater engine to calibrate weapons faster and make them faster in grafical ways. One great game idea of this type would give a company grandslam in their pockets. Like the WoW did, and it was not even a whole new idea. Old crap. I really hope that EA will not copycat this game idea before the real Alliance.

I guess this means that alliance might be pushed back to 2009, but in the long run it might be worth it, if alliance comes out.

Yeah, Im sure it will be worth it, if only because of the sheer number of possibilities that the game and the engine provide.

Yeah the game will come in 2009 or it will be the next "STALKER".
Sox, Zain etc. I know that money talks in this world, but if youre gonna delay it until 2010 I suggest you cancel alliance. Its no worth then, its nothing impressive except the guns. Dont get me wrong people, I love this game but there will be even more impressive games than this at 2009/2010. We get new Elder Scrolls then. Cancel it, develop it now or sell it to CryTek.

Alliance had more going for it than just the guns. It's not like engines can be evolved or new ideas can be implemented to bring an in-development game up to date to the industry's standards or anything. :roll:
