Does the F18's prepurchase affect the F14s EA?
 
As the title says, how does the Hornet's long and early access prepurchase timeline affect the release of Heatblur's Tomcat?

As far as I know, there was never more than one module available for pre-purchase. Does this mean that we will not see the Tomcat before the F18 hits early access?

I'm not expecting to see the release of the F14 until fall 2018.

From a business point of view this is totally not viable. The way I know ED is that if Heatblur provides them with an EA build and they approve it, it will just go into the normal pre-purchase and EA phase. Unless its really close to the Hornet, like within a month of the Hornet Release, they might postpone, but not if its ready for EA in March and the Hornet is ready in June (Worst case)

Just because it has never happened before does not mean it never will ;)

I'm pretty sure the Tomcat will come out before the Hornet.

I don't think so, if you look on the list of planed modules to be released in 2018. If they wait until June(worst case) to EA the F-18 they must release 2 modules every month for the rest of the year.

From the last updates that Cobra showed us I get the feeling that the Tomcat will ready to release late February early March or there about. The problem is that we don't get many updates about the Tomcat while the Hornet gets one almost daily. Also we haven't seen anything other than the Chromcat and a few finished bits and pieces making us think that it is still far off.
However the big mystery this time around is the huge amount of time from the pre-purchase availability until the early access release and the vagueness of the early access date. As far as I know most pre-purchases start about a month before the release so this puts hope in me that we will get the Tomcat before the Hornet. Well, we can only wait and see.

I had a chuckle at this because the entire time I was reading it all I could think of was how fast I would throw my money at the screen if the 14 came out tomorrow.
