Looks like a couple new career opportunity ads from Ready at Dawn we found a few days ago caused some to argue that The Order : 1886 might be delayed further.
Luckily CTO Andrea Pessino took to Twitter to drop the axe on the idea, in a very clear cut way.
@RedBlack85 nessun posticipo – esclusa la zombie apocalypse il gioco esce in 20 febbraio. E non dare retta a nessuna “assunzione.” ; )

Translated from his native Italian Pessino says:
No Delay – Unless there’s a zombie apocalypse the game will be out on February 20th. And don’t believe any “assumption.”
Pessino plays on the word “assumption” that in Italian can also mean “hiring.”
It’s pretty obvious that the career opportunity ads don’t indicate the possibility of a delay.
Some may have believed that they indicate a change in direction for the game, but that’s not the case, as studios usually keep hiring as needed even close to a game’s release in accordance with their previous plans.
