Based on the 'Upcoming Product' page on the FFG website, Android: Netrunner has moved from the red "In Development" stage to the Orange "At the Printer" Stage:

The product is at the manufacturer. The duration of this process can vary greatly depending on the characteristics of the product, from a few months for a book to many months in the case of board games, which often need to coordinate multiple companies' components such as cards, dice, miniatures, and game boards.

I'm not sure how this helps us. Aren't we already aware that they're doing a limited release at GenCon and a wider release shortly thereafter? Have I misunderstood the timeline? Has that changed?

We know there is a release at Gencon, but nothing has been said of the wider release.

They can't hand product out at GenCON if it's not printed.

They very likely are not doing two separate print runs, that's insanity.

So the first 'X' (where hopefully X is bigger than 64) will be shipped via expensive air to GenCON for distribution there.

The other 'everything printed less X' will be packed on a boat and shipped the slow, less expensive way.

The earlier the stuff gets on a boat, the faster 'everyone but those who get a copy at GenCON' will have access.

"At the Printer" also means the rule book is finalized. Maybe there's hope we'll see it online earlier than the Monday before Gencon?

Although it is worth it to note that their status updates are not incredibly accurate. It is possible it could have been at the printer for awhile now already.

Or that I noticed it days after it happened...

Regardless, we have a moment in time (7/19/2012 morning) when it was 'at the printer', even if it had been there minutes, hours or days before.

Hope springs eternal.

I'd swear I've seen a August release list for FFG that had it on it. Can't remember where, though.

The BGG Marketplace entry that CLS already has posted says anticipating August release...
