Shiba Inu principal developer Shytoshi Kusama took to Twitter to clarify why the team uses teasers rather than exact dates and updates for new developments.
Just the other day, SHIB’s team announced the release of the 1100 booklet detailing Shib’s CCG game, original lore, and incredible art. Kusama further added that the next focus would be the L2 solution Shibarium but fell short of handing out any specific dates.
While many people applauded the news, one Twitter user criticized Kusama for failing to provide any information about planned initiatives, calling the project useless.
The lead developer for Shiba Inu responded by saying that if changes or even deadlines are revealed in advance, scammers or copycats frequently use this as an opportunity to imitate what has been shared. He noted:
We’ve been forced to work in this unusual and quiet manner. Not to say I’ve nailed everything. I haven’t. And lots of updates need to be put out to show progress I agree. I’m just saying why things are step by step & the booklet to explain the game is an important step for growth.
However, he acknowledged that numerous updates are required to demonstrate progress as the project continues to go forward in a “unique and discreet manner.” Kusama further elaborated on Shiba Eternity’s usefulness.
The project head shared some information with the SHIB community last month. He tweeted, “Head down working. Update coming soon and I think you will love it.”
Shiba Inu CCG Reached The Top 20 On App Store
The use of the Twitter hashtags Shiba Eternity and Shibarium by the developer appeared to be a subliminal signal as to what the update might be about. Shiba Eternity, a collectible card game from SHIB, launched globally on Android and iOS devices on October 6.
Shiba Eternity, created in collaboration with PlaySide Studios, reached the top 20 games on Apple’s App Store on its first day of availability.
The Shiba Inu team predicted that Shiba Eternity, which lets players select from 10,000 Shiboshi heroes and 500 collecting cards, will be the most challenging collectible card game to date.
When the game was released, the community was ecstatic, but now many people are still looking forward to the introduction of Shibarium. Kusama added that Shibarium would be made available “soon,” although he didn’t specify when.
