The Epic Games Store Development Roadmap Will No Longer Display Expected Dates
"The Trello roadmap is not fulfilling the goal we set when it was introduced."
The Epic Games Store's Trello roadmap has been revamped and will no longer list the planned release dates for features currently in development. The company created the Trello board close to the store's launch in an effort to increase transparency.
In a blog post, Epic announced that dates and expected delivery times have been removed. The Trello board previously listed target windows so players could track when new features were arriving, but Epic often missed these dates or rolled them out to select games rather than the entire store.
"The Trello roadmap is not fulfilling the goal we set when it was introduced," the blog post says. "The goal with the Trello roadmap is to provide visibility into the development cycle for the store's more player-centric feature set. While it's accomplished that to some degree, we've missed the mark accurately displaying the timelines for feature delivery. We regularly delay feature releases due to shifting priorities and the need for further iteration. We're always focusing on improving, and we believe the Trello can be improved as well."
Instead of showing the time of delivery, the Trello board will now be focused on what's actively in development and provide "more granular updates on individually listed features." These will be split up into vague categories for what's up next, and what's in the plan for future development. Epic says the Trello will be updated every two weeks, and it also plans to detail larger feature updates in its blog, much like it did last month with a post on cloud saves, new product pages, and more.
