    according to wikipedia. if atari really is scrapping everything so far and planning on a 2016 release date, i would not be upset at all. hopefully they learned to how to handle the series now.

    Looks like Frontier's Coaster Park Tycoon will come out sooner

    I think Atari are really pushing it if they are going for a 2015 release! I wouldn't expect it till next year and if it comes out sooner then great.

    I'm expecting at least 2016. Disappointing, but I'm OK with it. I'd rather have it delayed than awful.

    Well, it would most certainly be a mistake for Atari to push their release date to after Frontier's product. That said, it would behoove them to actually create a complete, polished game first and foremost. However, releasing after a game that is direct competition could really kill Atari's financial take.

    If Frontier's game is decent, it could conceivably rob the market-share from RCTW. Even more likely if RCTW is a flop. Atari also has competition from smaller developments such as Theme Parkitect, OpenRCT2, FreeRCT, and so on. Atari needs to focus on creating something worth buying, but I don't anticipate a push back of almost two years. Even one year back would be a surprise.

    But aren't Parkitect, OpenRCT2, FreeRCT, etc..., more management based? RCT3 was more on the creativity side, and I would suspect that RCTW would be the same as RCT3. There are at least two interest groups here. Park/Ride Creators and Management.

    Wikipedia is not the best or most accurate source of information, it's only as good as who edits it. But if this rumor is true, I would not be sad, I just want them to take their time to make the best game they can.

    I kinda wish gaming companies would not post release dates, or at least more people learn to take it like a grain of salt.

    I did the maths in another thread. Number of assets to redo/refresh/still crate in RCT, number of people at Area52, if it's anywhere close to quality and detail ppl want then it's got to be a long wait!

    It will be another Duke Nukem Forever let's be honest here, I already saw RCTW heading down that path a fair while back now because what has been said and what has been shown coming from Atari has been a load of rubbish.
