According to archive.org he was removed from the Staff List and the related Profiles page sometime between October and December of 2016. As far as I know nobody from the company had said anything much about it. (There was a bit of discussion elsewhere about it back when the Stakeholder's Report came out.)

So he was the line editor? I saw the posts about that. I just didn't know he was the line editor.

This thing is FUBAR. The going dark for months is a joke.

I'm calling a spade a spade here.

Scott Haring was previously the Car Wars Line Editor, yes.

Which, admittedly, is standard for Steve Jackson Games in almost all respects of their business.

There are times when I think they hold things too close to their vests (and this may not be one of those times), but it's their decision.

I can guess some answers:
1. If/when it's ready.
2. Part of why CW6 was set aside for now was to keep other commitments. See also #1.

I wasn't complaining if it came across that way, SJGames has done a better job than many in keeping their ducks in a row.

I was absolutely complaining. I am tired of this. Don't get me wrong, SJGames has been successful in many ways, but they have a ceiling based on how decisions are made within. Any company run by only a few people, particularly the founder of the company, will have this same issue.

For the record, when I was a child and playing CW by myself (which shaped me into the Engineer that I am today BTW), I wrote questions to SJG and got answers back, written by Scott. I felt so important to the company. Now? nothing.

We will release when we believe the game is finished and not before. We will not allow dates to force us to publish a game that we do not feel is ready.

Maybe someone at SJG should set their Outlook to remind them to post one thing on this forum every month, even if it is something like" all....... we've got other things going on right now"........


going dark is ..... not showing much love......
