I have not known Red Raven to not inform the fans first. We were told more info was coming.
It is my #1 priority coming from RRG so I am not concerned that a OLGS has a listing. They have listings at a whisper of a new titles.
On their kickstarter for Empires of the Void II (live NOW, trying to secure final stretch goals go back it!!) they mentioned releasing a game this year direct the shelves no kickstarter. They then specifically said it WASNT Haven though.
Yeah this isn't an answer to your question per say. :-)
The impression I've been getting is that Haven will be kickstarted.
Frankly I hope they continue kickstarting their games. Ryan has said the process makes his games better and I tend to agree. Plus it's just so fun to be a part of his kickstarter a, you get to feel involved in the process and come away with s game you feel you had some involvement in.
