Construct 3 any news?

Which will happen first.....C3 or Half Life 3?

Lol! Just joking. Love C2 and using it everyday, so honestly, I'm not really in any rush for C3, cause so far, I believe the only limitation to me building games is my own ability and not C2. But am looking forward to it.

It seems like C3 has been worked on for almost 2 years now considering it was first mentioned beginning of 2015. So that is a lot of time to develop a new editor. I'd be kind of surprised if it isn't released somewhere between mid 2017 - end of 2017.

My patience will only last until 2018. But that's already a lot of time.

If too much time passes, it is giving too much advantage to the other competitors, when Construct 3 is launched, competitors will already have had time to continue to evolve his tool

Yoyo games took 2 years between announcing game maker studio 2 and releasing its open beta and now selling it.
They rewrote their engine too.

I think the reason construct3 is taking a lot of time is simple - Scirra is a much much much smaller team, with mainly @ashley working on the version 3, while also maintaining the current one

in contrast yoyogames releases native exporters, html5 exporters and has a bigger developer team.
They even released a plethora of learning videos with the beta:
http://www.yoyogames.com/learn2
They were acquired by a company with a lot of capital too. Yoyo games is based in Scotland btw.

The other competitor- clickteam now has a dev blog to wet the appetite and engage with people to get them invested
http://www.clickteam.com/fusion-3-development-blog

Both engines already showing up with brand new spanking features that address old weaknesses and also promise to be multi-platform in terms of editor and export (native AND html5) - construct3 is going to see some very stiff competition by the time it is revealed- especially now that people can start to learn about what's in the other ones and even download and use one of the two.

If clickteam releases a beta before construct3 even has a screenshot or estimated release date - it might attract a lot of the people hungry for updates on that construct3 website that is getting no updates whatsoever :lol:

Same but I think a lot of people are hesitating purchasing C2 since C3 license is not free (You need to pay 2 upgrade), and with C3 in developed for so long the date of release can be anytime, can be tomorrow, can be in 1 month or 1 year, since there is no ETA and they worked on C3 for so long time.

Should definitely give some kind of ETA on when C3 is getting released.

I have a friend that wont purchase the C2 since C3 is 'around the corner'.

Ah, that makes perfect sense. True, if you haven't bought it and heard an upgrade was coming up recently, than definitely. Maybe Scirra and @Ashley can do a sort of promotion to dismiss those worries. How about those that purchase C2 within 2 or 4 months from purchasing C3, only need to pay the difference in price between what they paid for C2 and the full price of C3?

For someone who does not have Construct 2, the question is ..
What is cheaper to buy C2 and upgrade to C3 or buy C3 directly?
