City State Entertainment spoke about the state of Camelot Unchained's development during the weekly update stream, as per usual. Unfortunately, it seems like the development is not going that fast, as Mark Jacobs stated it will not release before 2020.

Camelot Unchained is not coming in 2019, despite many fans' expectations. Mark Jacobs himself headed the recent state of the game live stream where he announced the game would release in 2020, maybe.

Jacobs he understands that fans are frustrated with the slow pace of the game's development but also pointed out the fair stance that CSE folks maintain - they are not asking for more "investments" from the players and the developers are still offering refunds to backers who became disillusioned with the progress.

While the big man didn't make a direct comparison, we can all easily think of a crowdfunded game that has had an even longer development and crowdfunding period with a more than 10 times bigger budget that is still taking spaceship-like pledges. In case you are unsure about the reference, it rhymes with Star Citizen.

Anyway, Jacobs also stated he doesn't want to release a "minimum viable product" which is certainly a good thing, as today's game market is flooded with such .

On the not-so-good side of things, Jacobs projects that while Camelot Unchained can get to a release state in 2020, it will not be feature-complete. Whether that means the game will or will not be released during the year remains to be seen.

One thing every should respect about Jacobs' stance is that CSE are not playing hide and seek with the fans. They came out, stated the development is not going as fast as fans might like and reminded everyone refunds are still an option, instead of keeping it secret until the expected release date came knocking.
