For those who are interested, here's some recent commentary from ske7ch. Sounds like he's still on the case to get an answer (good or bad).
Quote:My quest for a final call on MCC is not yet over. I'm fast approaching my one year anniversary at 343 and I feel for the first time an answer is nearly within reach. I still remain committed to providing a definitive answer, one way or the other, so we can all get on with our lives. :) @ske7ch343
Quote:Can't undo the past at this rate but just letting players know one way or the other is still something I feel strongly about. I'd like to know, too. And you might find this surprising but MCC still does very well and is constantly drawing new players. It's far from "dead." @ske7ch343
Quote:Actually yeah. Every time I've tried to say "nothing will ever be done about the game" I've come to find that wasn't necessarily true. Trust me, I'm all for saying that as soon as folks will commit that's the case. Now I'm not so sure that is the case to be honest. I'm not spinning PR talk. I'm closer, I think, to a legitimate answer but still not at liberty to give that answer. There were a flurry of meetings 9 months ago and now, 9 months later, it's been a recurring topic again. @ske7ch343
Quote:That's all I'm trying to do. I'd love to see MCC get some love (and I don't know if it'll ever be possible to fix every single lingering issue and complaint - but I'd love to give it one more shot). But if it's not happening then my goal is to close the door and get one with our lives. @ske7ch343
Quote:Well all I've said is that I think the studio is close to having a final position on MCC and thus being able to let everyone know if there will or won't ever be another update to the game. @ske7ch343
Quote:It's just... complicated. That's of course incredibly simplistic to say but the reality is that there are just a ton of variables, dependencies and interwoven complications. If it were clear cut and straight forward I guarantee we'd have ended this dialog months/years ago - there's no shortage of desire here to give MCC the love it needs. The reason I've got renewed hope is that there have been some updates and advancements on the platform side that I think open up some avenues to do work the team has long wanted to do. (matchmaking is a specific example) @ske7ch343
