Hey TW why not start supporting the game again? You have a steady playerbase it wouldn't take much to add a patch to the game which could be done from home, as most people can't now go to work. Plus also you can release the game on Google Stadia and create more cosmetics to get more revenue in.

Win win if you ask me !

While we are continuing to work towards a final QoL update, the game will no longer be actively supported. It currently does not make enough revenue to warrant putting a team behind it sadly, but that is always something we can re-evaluate, especially if new revenue streams are found that match up with resources being available.

the game is on sale like once a month plus the GAM DLC came out (made through the labor of modders, not TW employees) after the last large content update (1.4). How can you honestly say this game does not make enough money?

its been like 9 months since an update, I am sure enough revenue has been generated during this time to substantiate more progress being made in the time we've been waiting. The game is a broken exploitable mess right now and its all falling apart

Pretty easily. It takes quite a bit of money to put a team on a game. Salaries for the employee's involved are usually only about half the cost. On average it can take hundreds of thousands to millions of dollars to produce even the smaller updates you see in video games.

SInce TWI is pretty much done with the game, it would be nice if the game could become open source to make mod scene grow.

The game is somewhat unfinished and considering RO's origins it would be the right thing for the devs to do. I'm sure the talent among this community can fix some of the remaining issues.

Almost everything is available via the SDK as is. We cannot release the engine source as we do not own it, it belongs to Epic Games.

What if it was made free-to-play? (And Ostfront, by the way, I really miss that game!!!) Maybe the cosmetics purchases alone in such a scenario could be enough reason to reconsider development, but I don't know. Other noninvasive fields of monetization are possible. This game has incredible potential and it's a shame to see it not being looked into further.

+1 for making the game free to play. if not for the rest of its lifespan, then at least for a week or something. we still have a pretty dedicated playerbase of 1,800 people across NA and EU, and im sure a lot of them would be willing to shell out some money for additional cosmetics. stuff like sgt. joe's support bundle should be considered.

Yeah I doubt there isn't significant revenue coming in, if they wanted new revenue streams theres always new cosmetic packs e.g. the Australians could use a lot more cosmetics, same goes for the US, theres many possibilities, Many people still play this game and prey on a final update/new content we were promised prior, (m113, various weapons, mobile ammo boxes etc) why not at the very least release this content into the community so it doesn't go to waste?

this thread is blowing up I think all the devs should at least see this....
i'd at least like to see them acknowledge that there IS a demand for more content, that there is still a playerbase who wants to see this game extend its longevity in some way

There is always a demand for more content, but sadly it isn't always worth the cost to produce. Unless some major numbers shift, support for RS 2 has ended.

What about the proposed patch?
Plans for the final QoL update have not panned out so far as we had intended. Currently our intent is still to do one, but the fine details that get it out the door to players are in question and changing.

Will the patch include fixes to the unranked and whitelist bug? especially the whitelisting, because winter war does not support exp, which is a pretty big deal breaker for players and makes seeding servers harder. Also is there a time window you can give us when the patch will roll out?

That is the main goal of the update that is being worked on. Sadly I do not have any further information to share at this time.

how much does it cost to sell content made by the community, like the sgt joe's support bundle?

That would depend on any deal made with the content creator. But more importantly is how many users are willing to purchase those items.

Sadly where RS 2 right now in its life cycle, new sales and DLC does not eclipse the value of resources being utalized elsewhere in the company on other current and future projects.

Im happy if the QoL update is coming.....contentwise the game isnt bad, there are a lot of good custom maps and a healthy community.
More i would prefer if TWI would start working on a Ro Ost mixed with Ro2 Combined Arms remastered title.
