I know, I know. This has been discussed to death and no progress has been made (to my knowledge). If I recall correctly, however, the devs did say that clues about the threat were hidden in the game files. I don't think that anyone ever found anything (please correct me/show me if I'm wrong).
I think that it is about time that the devs reveal the clues to us, if said clues exist at all. Please devs, just show us! It's pointless waiting for the community to find clues in the game files, they would have been found already if it was going to happen.
So, for the last time, please tell!
