Actually, I'm perfectly fine with the delay.

Yes, a few more weeks of waiting, but it will be totally worth it, looking at the complexity of this bird.

I have no problem with this announcement at all. If ED believe they need the extra time to release a product that lives up to the standards people expect from them then it's entirely right to delay, and I genuinely appreciate the fact that they decided to communicate this to us now.

Yea no real surprise,

I was very doubtful it was coming Dec, just with the timings of the video's, and start up video not able to be made as they were waiting on stuff to be completed. Despite Wags keeping saying 2021, I was hopeful but remained sceptical. Just as well. Roll on January 🙂

ED is giving more EA miles for the delay as a gesture.

As a token of our appreciation for your pre-orders, we are increasing your pre-order ED miles up to 8,500.

i hope "George" is not as big of of an imbecile as me 😉

Only thing that I not okay with is that they started collecting money and hyping with videos and then failed to deliver. If they said it in the beginning of the october and started preorder now it would be whole different story. Its obvious that they actually knew, because of only one wags video posted after preorder trailer...

I just hope George will be voiced by then, instead of having to rely on flying text that you might not even see, especially in VR...

Guys, please keep the criticism mature and constructive, I know this is disappointing, but it has happened, and we have to roll with it. The AH-64D will be worth the wait. 

If you can't post in a respectful manner, we will have to hand out points. If you are that upset, take a break and post later.

Thanks.

I wouldnt expect it, they need to finalize everything with the AI, then record all the commands, it will be during EA no doubt.

And we understand that, hence the extra ED miles, but things happen, and problems develop, we won't release it in a state people would deem unacceptable.

I ended up getting a refund from Steam on my Apache pre-order today - and then bought the Tomcat - just a few hours before I read about the delay. Serendipitous, I guess. It just hit me with the last video(s) about the Apache that it was going to be a very complicated module. I have no doubt it will be excellently crafted, but my brain can't handle a helicopter with an A-10C II level of complexity, which is what this thing looks like. That's just beyond my mental snack bracket.

 

My heart belongs to the Ka-50 and will surely be stolen by the BS3. But I'll try the Apache in the free trial and see if I can wrap my head around it. There's no question is looks freakin' cool.

This is an EXTREMELY disappointing announcement, especially as release was eagerly anticipated before the holidays.  However, IMHO, it is COMPLETELY the right decision by ED and one built on bitter experience.  ED have provided a list of specific functionality/ features for Early Access release and another list for module completion.  The Early Access list provides features that will provide players with a fun and flyable AH-64 at initial release. This will be followed by further, more complex features, weapons and module refinement.  To jump the gun and go early when this list of EA features are not ready (in particular the AI) would be to do the whole F-16 release all over again, and make it unenjoyable for everyone!  The AH-64 module is a complex aircraft which will require two pilots or one pilot and a clever AI to fly/ operate it.  Imagine if they did release it with a George AI  who was basically bat-sh*t crazy!  Not doing stuff he was supposed to, repeatedly crashing into things, not identifying targets, not engaging, trying to fire through buildings et. etc.  It would be pointless and people would lose their lolly big time!    ED want this released just as much as we do, but they want it done right, just as we do.

Unfortunate but necessary.

Quite happy to wait for this to cook a little longer, thanks for the gift of the miles for the delay, used to purchase the Mirage, a great gesture from ED for eveyone who pre purchased.

TBH id be happy with the new weather content teased in the Dec update

Good Night @NineLine! I pre-ordered on Steam. Will I receive miles on the website?

ED made the right decision! If it's not ready, it's better to postpone the launch. The important thing is that Apache will be released on DCS.
