They're "aiming" for this week?

It's almost like they're not finished yet.

And it's almost like they should stop promising things when even they aren't sure.

They haven't learned yet. Maybe next time...

I'm pretty sure they have "learned" not to promise definitive release dates. They are being smart.  If you know anything about application development, you would know that nothing is certain until it's live. They could have 100% of the update finish. However, what happens when they go to migrate the new build into the live client, and the transfer breaks something unforeseen? 

Rule #1: Never make guarantees. No matter how perfect you think you are, there will always be chance of flaw when humans are involved.

"This week" is pretty definitive. They locked themselves in this box and I'm sure they disappointment when they delay again will be palpable and bitter.

I wonder why they couldn’t push it out today. Last minute bugs? Hotfixes always do the trick. 

This is interesting. Something tells me we’re gonna get more than we expected, but I will keep my hopes at an appropriate level of hype. 

Doesn't seem like they're close enough to last minute bugs. They'll be at that point by Friday.

EDIT: Apparently, they're confident it'll release tomorrow.

Meh. Saying "we're aiming for this week" is still smarter than saying "the update will be on Thursday." Their statement is not as definitive as you are implying.

Seriously? We're arguing gradations of time? This week instead of tomorrow? 

Yeah, sure, totally different. By about six days.

Lol, I guess you overlooked the word I put in bold.  By using the qualifier word "aiming", it means there is no guarantee, it's just a hope.  Just because you read it as something definitive is not DE's fault, and entirely your own problem.

I mean, it was DE that said it will be released this week at E3, one of the biggest annual gaming events. Finding the following announcement of "we're aiming" just a bit alarming is reasonable. This makes me think they're trying to squeeze it into this week as tight as possible, even if it means an unfortunate Friday release (which I really hope isn't the case).

I'll take Thursday or Monday, anything but the second coming of SO.

Go read the literal Sacrifice page on this site.

You know what the first line is? "Coming this week to PC, coming soon to consoles."

Glad I could clear that up for you.

I would agree, and I am trying not to forget War Within's own late update release! Sanctuary Onslaught is a valid comparison though since the hot-fixes through the weekend still didn't make the mode fully playable, that took the following week as I recall!

Yes. Megan stated that there were still people in office over the weekend fixing, but the host migration and other severe bugs were not squashed until after the weekend. If the Sacrifice comes out on Friday, it's an inevitability that there will be people working on Saturday and maybe Sunday, but Beasts has me paranoid that any major bugs with the quest may not be addressed until the following week.

-DE announces that The Sacrifice (and umbra) will drop this month

-knowing DE's track history, the player base expects it within the last three days of the end of the month

-DE surprises everyone by officially announcing at e3 that the update will arrive this week, not even half way into the month

-playerbase gets so caught up in the hype that some don't even eat or sleep while waiting for the update

-DE announces that the update won't drop today but it will still be released this week

-players loose their mind

 

We are truly terrible human beings

Any talk on why they’re calling him Umbra instead of Excalibur Umbra?

Probably just ease. Umbra reads easier than Excalibur Umbra.

What's the evidence? Not that I don't believe you (I was banking on thursday myself), but I want to see this with my own eyes.
