Matt “Gstaff” Grandstaff had these comments on the way Bethsoft decided to spread information about the game:
Aviva: The game is over a year away, things can still change or be tweaked.
Gstaff: I think that’s something everybody has to remember. More information about the game will be made available over time. The GI cover story is just the first bit of coverage about the game.[…]
While I won’t comment on what was discussed in the article, there was plenty of information in the article. Remember, these guys saw the game, and they wrote an article on what they wanted to cover.
