Below Zero Roadmap Rebooted & Release Timeline

Posted by david 3 years ago

What’s up with the roadmap?

If you’ve been following Below Zero’s development on Favro closely, you may have noticed that the Project Roadmap has changed a touch.

 

We’ve decided to try something a little different.  For years, we’ve used the roadmap as a way to try and plan a path forward with Subnautica.  Implicit in the roadmap is a hedge – that we don’t really know where we’re going and that we can change our minds as we go.  In spite of that uncertainty, we still try to plan as far out into the future as possible, and we have tried to include every individual feature – big or small, meaningful or trivial – on the roadmap.
