Pine? What?

Good to see you; hope you still have your massive gun collection.

<coughs> Oh wow. This thing is still on? Hiya everyone.

1. The first priority is to get people back to playing the game. This is what the game is for and we need to revive a regular playerbase. This is why we are releasing the game for free on Steam. Anything that might hurt this launch will have to wait.
Fantastic! I haven't played in a dog's age, but I kept wondering why this wasn't happening. Now that it finally is, there's just one little wrinkle...

The release date has been decided to be 21st December 2017.
Don't. Please. I implore you. Push it back to early January if you have to, but do not release in the middle of the Steam Holiday Sale. That is the one sure-fire way to guarantee a game's release on Steam will gather zero exposure, and you will completely blow your one and only shot at this after all these years. It's less a matter of the game competing for attention with all the massive discounts going on (although that is also an issue), and more a matter of Steam hiding the "New Releases" tab where most people will never find it until the sale is over. It happens with every seasonal sale, and I've seen several smaller games suffer from their ill-timed launches.

Best of luck either way. With this kind of planning, you're gonna need it.

The steam release was delayed to (end of) January but considering progress on my part and on the trailer/art I wouldn't necessary bet on it :/
I'm currently struggling to open up enough quality free time to make development progress in a pace that doesn't disappoint me and everyone else.

I started on a trailer a while ago but done nothing after that due to lack of determination/motivation.

I don't visit here very often, but this is good news!:) Can't wait to see the game on Steam and play it again. Cheers MM and the Soldat Team!

Yeah, we all can't wait, but it seems we are going to wait to the February at least. I hope we won't wait to the 29th of February...

It is so pathetic and frustrating. Hundreds of announcements, date of release soldat 1.7.1 (21.12.2017 - haha, nice joke), petitions, a lots of promises. And what? The next version of the game will be released in 2 years or longer. Developers are very lazy and have this game in the ass. At the moment I stop waiting for Soldat 1.7.1 on steam. I'm not interested anymore.

SneS, you got it wrong, it was just a joke from my side xd. We actually need to wait some more time, we don't know how much, but ofc not so long. Besides, I'm not a part of team so I'm not allowed to post there any official/fake announcements. Well I could post something if I would be asked for it, but I would make it straight that it's message from dev team.
And last thing, on Steam there's gonna be released version 1.7.2, 1.7.1 is actual version :D.

Nobody seemed to ask nor was there a hint, but why was Falcon's dev team ever replaced?
I have to say that the developing process back then seemed very promising in many areas. Probably mainly due to the fact there were several teams, each dedicated to it's field (coding, mapping, etc...).

And then came this sudden change... I am just curious, why exactly?

Yeah, Falcons team was good. I think what got them kicked out was because their progress had slowed down significantly. Then Shoozza made that deal with MM.
