Epic Games Store roadmap will no longer show delivery estimates on features

Epic Games unveiled a development roadmap of its PC games store earlier this year to showcase what features are being worked on behind the scenes and when can users expect them to ship out. However, some of these plans haven't really panned out, with multiple delays pushing back promised elements.

In a new update, the company acknowledged that it "missed the mark" on displaying the delivery timelines accurately "due to shifting priorities and the need for further iteration." To remedy this, the company has "revamped" the Trello-hosted roadmap to ditch the estimated delivery windows altogether and go for a simpler system.

Instead of the Near, Mid, and Long terms - and their associated months seen in the previous iteration for features -, the new roadmap now simply presents them in "Up Next" and "Future Development" tabs. The new roadmap can be found here.

Epic said it plans to update the roadmap every two weeks and that there will also be detailed reports of larger features whenever they ship out. The most recent report of this nature had the store delivering cloud saves for another group of games, a new look for product pages, and Humble keyless activation integration.
