Methinks you generalize a bit. You’re upset that they haven’t kept their word when your money was involved. Other people see this in a very different light. They gave INS money to build a new and different computer game. INS is working on it as diligently as they can. For most people, that’s all we can ask of anyone - a best, honest effort. So we ignore the dates and just keep watching the progress.
That said, yes, INS should stop quoting dates. They don’t hit them and they know they don’t hit them. If this wasn’t just a computer game, or if the people backing the project weren’t intensely devoted to the project, INS would be facing a complete loss of funding or even lawsuits. People who only care about money can be quite nasty.
To be honest, I’m beginning to wonder what’s going to happen when the money they have runs out and the product isn’t completed. The original product delivery date was September 2017 yet it’s not yet in Alpha test. How far can they stretch the original funding?
