I have the feeling that Feral have decided to say silent until the game is out, since they've been criticised for announcing the game way too early. Another announce may not be well received.

That would honestly be a good policy, if they could do something like that.
Maybe it really is all cocks in the end.

It is not an easy situation for them when you think about it really. If they announce early those with consoles or a PC/boot camp might hold off for the Mac release and so more sales. If then they encounter technical problems or politics that stop approval of the port then potential buyers are disappointed and might give up.

Feral knows that it's best for all concerned to wait to announce a release until it's a done deal.  They do it just right too using their radar, teasing their audience with what-could-it-bes, and by the time it is really ready to announce, the game title has been guessed by engaged gamers.  If a deal falls through the mystery game disappears from the radar.  It's a brilliant strategy.
