(the following is a sharing of my opinion on this issue, which I posted in a thread on UO Hall). Possibly, SA is delayed because they're conflicting whether it's worth the effort to make SA compatible with 2D. If they don't (which was the original plan - to force everyone onto KR), then SA isnt going to make enough money to be worth launching. Because at least half the UO playerbase are unable to (eg. due to higher PC specifications), or unwilling to, switch to KR. If they do (make SA compatible with 2D), then it'll be worth launching, in terms of profits. However, making SA (originally designed and coded to be KR only) compatible with 2D is not only incredibly difficult (possibly requiring an overhaul or rewrite of the entire code), but possibly impossible to achieve. So EA-Mythic is in a quagmire in regards to SA. Which is why they're stalling for time on this. Somehow, it has turned into a lose-lose stalemate in regards to the viability and launching of SA. Personally, I'd prefer they make SA compatible with 2D, if at all possible. My PC is ancient, no video card and only sufficient to run 2D, and I have neither the means nor the inclination to purchase a new high-end PC anytime soon.
