We are also very excited at the feedback we've been receiving about the Foundry from our Closed Beta participants. There has been a lot of discussion about whether the Foundry will be available on Holodeck when Season 3 releases or not. It is our goal, but we have a ways to go before we can give a definite yes. Our immediate attention is on getting the Foundry available on TRIBBLE possibly as early as next Monday so that we could enter Open Beta with the tools. That is our next hurdle with the Foundry and one the software team is working feverishly to hit.
Even if the Foundry is not made available on Holodeck at the release of Season 3, we will absolutely have it turned on in an Open Beta on TRIBBLE so that everyone can begin to learn the tools and begin play testing missions created by others. So no matter what, the Foundry is only a few weeks away for you.
