    A game coming out earlier than planned is never a good thing.

    Yeah, an "accelerated" release is never a good thing(Hello, Sword of the Stars 2) I hope they put in the work to make it a good game rather than just rush it out as a cash grab.

    Yeah, without any other info it's hard to say, but this doesn't bode well in my opinion.

    I agree! this acceleration will have major bug issues. the game was playing for a while had a major glitch during closed beta cuz it was rushed. and they still haven't fixed the other glitches.

    You guys are talking like it will come out sooner than expected. Right now it's only a possibility.

    being that it's a piece of browser-based shovelware, I don't see how it had any chance of being anything BUT a cash grab. if they couldn't be bothered to make actual software...

    IF it comes out sooner than expected, that's probably the worst news you can get about a game other than a cancellation.

    It's a browser game like runescape? (Yes, I'm aware Jagex made it also) This whole time I was under the impression it was going to be some kind of MMO like WOW others.

    Runescape is an MMO.

    Only 156 people play Runescape? I though it was a little bigger than that.

    Anyway, if the overall product of Universe turns out to be a bomb due to the early release, at least we can blame Insight Ventures.

    I'm hoping for an open beta, but I don't mind if it releases a little early. It's an online game, there will likely be updates for any significant bugs anyway.

    I wish someone with half a damned brain cell would acquire the rights to Star Trek Online :( 

    Yeah I know it is off topic :lol 

    Well, hopefully I can find someone with some beta codes.

    I wish a company would come together to do a Transformers console MMO...
    Kinda like what Dust 514 is going to be... Except 3rd person optional as well.
