Yeah, that'll be the reason both ES and Deepsilver are holding back their multi-million euro investment....
Maybe Egosoft is pushing out Rebirth until a few months after XTC 2.0 is released.... so they can play XTC and see what players want and what their engines can do.

There is economic merit to that claim. If ES paid more attention to what its playerbase was interested in, it would probably market itself much better. After all, when was the last time we devoted so much TXU space and time to vanilla anything -- everything here of interest has been player-modded for user enjoyment.
I've just watched the English sub titled presentation vid and I think Rebirth looks great! Seems to me they've made a big effort to correct and add many of the things people have complained about for years. I agree that one player ship will be an adjustment but now I can remote guide a heavy torpedo to its target. I mean, cool! My ship has a bridge and other stations that I can go to, manned by crew members who's skills increase with experience and training... and there's face to face interaction. Same with station managers (this might negate the need for CLS). I can give more detailed and specific instruction to ships and captains and they will, hopefully, act less like AI and more like military force, or trading fleet. Maybe the auto-pilot will be trustworthy with a competent crew to monitor it. Most notable of all, they've opened the door to a multiplayer universe. If I can loosely reiterate, they said ...multiplayer was too much for us to do in this release but we'd really like to do it... I know there are a bunch of people out there who are gonna be happy 'bout that!
Well i'm not excited about the X:R i play still Reunion, darn it has a smooth graphic, linear yet so unloaded, ease... starting XTC the graphics are already altered and results to be somehow frustating...wonder how will it be in X:R... if anyone saw a post about changing/downgrading graphic settings & performance in XTC to look the same as in X:Reunion please let me know, i would be much happier... But yes i started playing XTC, would be willing to install the AP mod and bring on Revelation mod or XTM for XTC ^_^
