Agreed, and to be fair they did say that at the time, as you said. It was stated to scale back 24 months and forward 18 months. The other problem was the drivers. There was alot going on in the PC gaming world at the time. We had DX10, Vista and GPU's which were all new. It must have been a hell of a task developing the drivers, all the while people were wanting to play the most demanding game ever made. It was never gonna happen quickly, but I think we're there now
. Poorly optimized? nah, CryEngine2 rocks!
