Doubt it, they're too busy with finalizing the R&D bits. But I've seen yet smaller miracles happen before...
last i checked, not ALL the dev's are working on crafting... i'm pretty sure Kestrel doesnt have a hand in the crafting, she does all the writing you know, nor are environmental artists needed for crafting, or the ship crew. it's mainly the UI and tech guys who are handling that.
It's possible they are keeping it on the down low to surprise us.
