Too secretive, especially for a sequel 4 years later. I remember people on this board saying it's way too secretive, JJ Abrams would go onto a chat show and show 3 frames of it...which was what..six months before release? We knew nothing.
They had the same problem with the game. Six months before release and we barely knew or saw anything, despite the game being announced at E3 a few years ago. Although in that case, it was understandable, since they were hiding how bad the game was.
It blows my mind over and over how incompetent a lot of video game developers are. I worked in that industry for about a year, it's pretty unprofessional and it shows in a lot of work. It's scandalous that they had an entire extra year, but don't appear to have done anything during that time. An extra year should allow them to tighten up the gameplay, hype the game up and add new features.
