    So the forums close tomorrow and January ends on Wednesday. We were told of news coming in January.

    So are the forums getting a last hurrah with a big news story or are the other platforms (discord/twitter/facebook) getting a boost with a big news post

    Don't know it wouldn't be the first time we weren't promised something and it fell through. It's not the end of the world I suppose but I'm still unhappy about the forum closure.

    A YouTuber apparently got a care package from Microsoft promoting their game subscription thingamajig, and it had a State of Decay 2 map in it of LA. So there’s that.

    I get the feeling we’re more or less at the mercy of Microsoft getting their act together for this subscription service, which since SoD 2 is apparently a big draw for it, means we’re stuck waiting for all that business to get nailed down as far as release of any new information.

  5. The main reason I signed up to the forums was for news. Guess I'll just have to check twitter now.

    Someone said the guy who got that was based in LA, so it was a map of his hometown.

    That would be a pretty crap way to drop the news of a new location/map though.

    yea no shit, the old marketing campaign seems to be lacking in a number of areas.

    defiantketchup - Today at 1:36 PM
    is that map a real leak? does one of the maps take place in Los Angeles?

    Undead Nicole - Today at 1:36 PM
    No.

    Incensio - Today at 1:36 PM
    this map is not ingame, it was for a fan
    UI maybe

    Undead Nicole - Today at 1:36 PM
    I can tell you that the map is not LA.

    Finances is a lame excuse for closing the forums. Uncle Bill has deep deep deep pockets.

    They are going read-only, so still paying for hosting, connectivity bandwidth, and so on. The only potential savings is not paying staff... and considering what that entails, IT cost is minimal. The only real savings is not paying Nicole to moderate them. (Edit: instead spending her time on the other places... don't want to insinuate anything about them getting rid of her.)

    I'm sure it's more on who controls SoD... Given its Microsoft, they don't want anything to serve as a communication hub that isn't in their control. Third part channels negate that.

    maybe the last post ever on the forums before closing will be some news.

    It would be the ultimate mic drop.

    It would be a shame though because we wouldn't be able to discuss it here.
