Neverwinter Nights 2: Mysteries of Westgate Delays

According to several developer posts in this thread on the official Neverwinter Nights 2 forums, Ossian's Neverwinter Nights 2: Mysteries of Westgate adventure pack continues to be delayed despite the fact that it's 100% complete. A couple of choice quotes:
Ah, perhaps my post was misunderstood. Atari is in no way dragging its metaphorical heels with MoW. It's just, we're all human (though I have been accused of being half-robot before)...and it would be nice to have it released as soon as possible, obviously! But I'm not accusing Atari of laziness or incompetence, because neither is the case. I'm just hoping alongside you guys that release happens as soon as possible.


The case is Atari should not have announced MoW until they knew they were ready, or at least close to ready, to release it, imho.

Let's just hope January 2008 doesn't mean the 31st and is the 1st, if it's the latter it's another week or so though I doubt it. My money is on mid Jan due to the holiday break.


I wouldn't paint Atari out to be the Christmas Grinch in this. It really boils down to working through technical issues as well as the time it takes to modify the NWN2 engine code. I can guarantee that Atari is just as anticipatory at releasing MoW as Ossian is (I talk to them almost every day), and if we could have released it earlier we definitely would have. We've actually taken the opportunity afforded by the delay to listen to some of your posts concerning distribution (specifically authentication), and are seriously considering implementing them. We'll let you know as soon as we have a definite release time available. Again, sorry for the wait.
