I picked up in a youtube video that on the Devtracker - Ask the Devs - PU, was stated that NPCs might not be available as crew at launch, and if they are they might not be able to pilot separate ships - like escorts.

This really scares me a bit. Since it would mean that you can't really use multi-crew ships as single player. Of cause I'm looking forward to crew ships together with you, but surely there are time where not so much are online or it's better to split up into different ships or we just do different things at the same time.

Furthermore, does that mean that Squadron 42 is delayed too, since I guess we do need wingman etc. in that game to make it fun.

Oh man thinking that the promised ability to fly multi-crew ships with NPC's or have your Millennium falcon crew like promised not at lunch of the PU but maybe even a year later ... well that sucks .. since it means MORE waiting for Star Citizen ... so in my mind I set the "full" release to end 2017 in my mind. Shame. What do you think?

i think delays and not getting it all on launch day is a bit expected. look at NPCs in Elite, just a bunch of dumb drones flying around in space and serving as target practice.

well it will take time and I don't expect a ready game until 2017 or maybe even 2018. Play elite in the meantime. The patches they installed have expanded the game nicley and will do so even more in the near future and we can expect even more further down the line.

Yeah true and I might hop on elite again. Just looked forward to 2016 as release . But I rather have a 2017 or 2018 release then a release with not the basic features in and for me a basic feature is at least the NPCs that can crew my Carrack
