Cubicle 7 works in mysterious ways - no WFRP launch at UK Games Expo

So you might remember the guys from UK Expo claiming to speak for C7 and announcing that WFRPv4 would launch at UK Games Expo?

 ---FROM THE VIDEO---

 "One of the things we can say, I know that Cubicle 7 are working on Warhammer 4 rpg and they've given us the rights to say today that that will be launched at the UK Games Expo."

The video is here, check at 19 minutes.

This has now been walked back according to grimandperilous.com.

I haven't found the clarification from Cubicle 7 that is mentioned in the linked post, but I guess that Jon Hodgson has now somewhere officially given information that identifies the UK Games Expo statement as being incorrect.

Now the game has been identified as the pdf being "anticipated" in June and the print version "anticipated" in July. I can't wrap my head around the "anticipated" thing ... sounds a lot weaker than "will be released" and more like "we put our hopes in that this thing will be released in pdf in June, but are choosing "anticipated" so as not to really promise anything".

The radio silence on this is baffling and confusing. I think that a somewhat more communicative stance from Cubicle 7 would generate a lot of positive chatter that would carry over to positive fan activity once the game is released. As it now stands when the last "preview" dropped, they said "more info coming soon" and we are now looking at over a week since then.

Yeah well, the game will be here some day. Stay tuned for more info from me about the game then.
