I've spent the last few days scouring the internet for any news on Spacecorp but I've been unable to find anything. This is my first P500 game and I have been looking forward to it for a very long time. Does anyone have any insight as to when they might start shipping? The October P500 update mentioned that it would be shipping "right around month end (possibly a couple days into November)." Maybe the answer is just "be patient" but with how excited I am about getting my hands on this game, that's very hard to do. I was hoping I would have it in time to play it with family during the Thanksgiving Holiday, do you think that's a pipe dream at this point?

I would appreciate anyone's thoughts!

If you look at the P500 page, the Andean Abyss reprint charged before Spacecorp, and both are still in the 'Charging' section - haven't moved to 'Shipping' yet. So I think Andean Abyss would move to 'Shipping' first - that's what I'm watching for as the next indicator.

My last shipment from GMT (Fall sale) took six days (Friday to Thursday; I'm in Atlanta); your profile says you're in Texas, so maybe you'll be a day less than that.

I'm right there with you, brother. Been waiting two, damn years for this game. I'm itching to get it. If GMT has it on hand, and would fly me out there, I'd start shipping it for them, just to speed things up.

My credit card was charged for it 10 days ago, but still no sign of it coming.

They mentioned somewhere that Andean Abyss and Spacecorp would ship concurrently.

As another data point, I just got charged a few days ago. (A week after being notified of such) It should just be a matter of time.

On Consimworld recently IIRC they said they were splitting shipping resources between the 50% off sale and prepub orders being shipped out. Between that and the fact that at least for SPACECORP they had one of the highest P500 totals of all time, I suspect it will take quite a while to work thru all the orders .

Has SPACECORP arrived at the warehouse prior to the sale we'd all be playing it by now. Just unfortunate timing.

I wonder, is there more people that aren't charged yet?

I see on GMT's website that SpaceCorp is still charging so I reckon everything's fine (just the queue is long), but I would be more at ease if I'm not the only one still waiting.

So, anyone?

Mine still shows as charging. I figured since I added this P500 in October, I'm at the end of the queue.

Still waiting as well! I also placed my order somewhat late (I think the beginning of October)

I've been informed that shipping starts later this week.

If you are wondering why your game does not ship when charged, the P500 section of the GMT site includes an explanation of the process, from which I quote: "almost all of our games have a charge-to-ship wait of a month or less - sometimes just a couple weeks."

SpaceCorp charged on Oct 28.

Thanks for all the answers.

Ok, so it seems everything is fine. It's in the process.
I myself had placed my order late too (sometime this September, or such).

Imagine running a business where your primary problem is that you literally can’t shovel your products out the door fast enough because people are buying too much. Man, that would be a nice place to work.

Per the latest update from GMT, SpaceCorp will not ship until December, due to an issue with missing cards.
