Heh... wow. No, Theros, you might be surprised to find that most people don't track a game's progress while it's in development. The first some people hear of these things is when the reviews start popping up. Or --and this one is still the most common-- when the pretty boxes start appearing on the shelves.
Further, this isn't a "lack" of information... heck, it's a veritable barrage
as far as pre-release information goes in this industry. So, errrm, relax.
