I have to say I hope everything works out well in the long run so we do get S3 and an expansion for Sacred 2 and that they come out as soon as possible just to try it out. But then I also want it to take a while for S3 to come out so we have plenty of time for working out everything in Sacred 2. And I hope (alot of hoping in this post) that everyone that works for ascaron is gonna be able to keep working if they get bought.

And I agree with Gogo...whats in the expansion... please tell or ill get my mafia :4rofl: contacts onto ya :)

It it too early for S3, since we are not bored from Sacred 2 yet.
With the expansion on summer we should expect it at 2010.

They worked on Sacred 2 for 5 years. Unless 2 of those were really working on S3, there's no way it could be close to ready. I doubt you'll see the expansion until 2010.

Sacred 3 is fully conceptualized and is currently in the prototype development phase, all of which is presently held behind closed doors.


He said it best. It will be a long long time before S3.

I just hope Ascaron gets their stuff together and makes the game enjoyable again. Still not playing atm, killed off my characters, uninstalled the game and waiting for a patch. And no, I'm not waiting for an expansion pack. Ascaron should release at least one more patch before they need to start thinking about a release of the expansion.

I want Sacred 2 to run as smooth as S1, but it seems that's impossible for now. I hope that it'll get better in the future.

Did you see what happened with BlueByte and Settlers ?

For me, Settlers IV (Die Siedler IV) was the last real Settlers game (and, as far as I know, tha last succesfull version). Ubisoft almost destroyed the saga and, it was at least "curious" that Settlers IV was published near the time when Ubisoft bought BlueByte and the game appear in warez BEFORE it was published (who supplied the pirated copy ? a BlueByte employee ? could be....)

Did you see what happened with software products "adopted" (like a children adoption) like: DBase III+, Quattro Pro, WordPerfect and several other examples. The buyer company did not "love" the adopted producted because they are not the "real parents" and the product fades and finally disappear.

Appart from economical interests, I think a company can not make a really good product if the company team do not love the product and do not take it as their son with enthusiam and deep emotion. No money compensate the lack of enthusiasm.

I hope Ascaron can solve its financial problems.

On the other hand, the bugs on Sacred 2 (Renik's end, Better yields, etc) and specially the bug in the final mission (Nameless guardians 3 and 4 not awaking in some circumstances) do not any good for the game. We, the old Sacred fans, could forgive these bugs but I think the newer gamers and specially those on consoles (XBox, PS, etc) will be less tolerant and if the game acquire fame of bugous no one will forget this fame.
