I hope devs don’t get put off releasing another roadmap in the future if they can’t meet self inflicted deadlines.
We knew these dates were ambitious.
Maybe next time we will get more generic timescales “Q1 2022” sort of thing.
I still love the roadmap and it fills me with hype to have a glimpse of what is planned.
Noticeable that May and June were the only months that had back-to-back 6.3 and 6.4 releases scheduled; from 6.4 onwards the releases come every two months.
I hope so, too.
But realistically the only thing they’d need to do is post on their own that there will be a delay.
I think you missed the point I was trying to make. The community is so small that the profit margin is just not there. If PQ3 had not blown it, GoW would have been axed its that simple.
Also the update plan probably went out the window with the delay on the last update and the various major problems that have popped up since. Not saying anythings been cancelled just might appear some other time.
Do you actually know it is only a slight delay? How do you know its not going to be pushed back weeks or months or even shelved altogether? All we are asking for is a revised estimate of the new content as the original timescale has now passed.
I just wrote this to calm down people on forum I don’t know if it’s delayed maybe delay is cause recent issues with servers
Doesn’t Kafka say that those are just their best guesses of the release dates?
Yes, they don’t like to give out exact dates because things can happen. “June” was obviously an optimistic guess.
I’m guess one or many things happened behind the scenes: new kingdom wasn’t completed (I’m assuming it’ll have to be included in 6.4), problems with servers, problems with third parties (either Google/Apple/Sony/Microsoft… I don’t believe Valve would give them issues), key people were away sick, or something completely off the wall.
I’ve been playing this game for many years. It’ll happen when it happens, just sit tight.
Just providing a quick update here, unfortunately 6.4 has been delayed. This is due to us awaiting approval on the platforms to release it.
We have updated the Gems of War 2022 Roadmap at the top of this thread and added the image in this post to represent this and show how this has changed things going forward.

Thanks so much for the update! Your team has been much more communicative and transparent since the release of this roadmap and I for one really appreciate it as I am sure so do many in the community.
Thanks for this update Im not long here in the community but its real great how you and the team behind the screens helped me by my ticket and how the mods/admin team keep us up to date!
Much success with everything what is under construction and comes in the future to this great game!
A happy enthusiasm player
Hi everyone, time traveller from the future here - it’s the 5th of December 2022 where (or should that be ‘when’!) I am.
Unfortunately, we’ve just been told about another small and completely unforeseeable delay to update 6.4, but we’re all really excited to see it along with the forthcoming Halloween and anniversary stuff, and the new Hellcrag kingdom!
Anyway, they’ve just posted an updated version of the 2022 roadmap, which I’m sending back in time to share with you guys. Hope it makes it safely through the time continuum!
A bit of a late reply but thank you so much OminousGMan!!
I knew this tasted a little funny!
Not trying to single you out. This goes for all feedback in regards to the update being “late”.
For 5+ years they wouldn’t tell us when an update was planned to be release due to fear of back lash when those dates weren’t meant.
I hope the devs are aware that 95% of the community understands that these dates are only a forecast and things can easily change.
The negative feedback should be taken in stride and not deter the act of sharing information. I’m 100% okay with negative feedback when warranted. However, negative feedback that can only result in negative actions makes zero sense to me personally.
If the devs listen and react to the negative feedback then they will rush updates that aren’t ready to adhere to their schedule. Or again, just keep that information to themselves so that updates can never be considered “late”.
Just a friendly reminder of this idea. ↑
This could probably have been advertised earlier but even so, thanks for the update.
It was advertised earlier.
The roadmap & the updates to it are very much appreciated! Hang in there Devs!
Give ‘em some slack players.
