The initial cost of a game is a HUGE barrier for players. F2P is the new popular trend in the market for a reason, people want to try a game for free. A lot of people will spend a ton of money on cosmetics and other content. (More people bought items in APB at a $60 price point than a $40 price point for the same item) (Tons of people have bought cars you can already obtain in-game for $25)

If you remove the barrier of the initial game cost and then charge people for various features you can already unlock by playing the game, you can make a killing. Reverie can also make unique cosmetic unit packs or things of that nature and charge for them.

There is a ton of content you can monetize if you make the game free. Take a look at LoTRO for a great reference. At Mirkwood the game was on its deathbed, look at it now and it's the shining example of Free To Play MMOs with a ton of profit generated a great new expansion on the horizon. They sell content like quest packs regularly.
trust me it will flop the buggs are real bad no one would play longer then 2 hours due to the errors that are not fixed im afraid to see what 3 hour is like

I feel you may be exaggerating to make a point. While, it definitely has room for improvement, I think they have left themselves enough time to iron everything out. Even the very next patch is supposedly much more optimized.

So how come I can't pre-order this game?

I checked Amazon for it and it isn't listed.

Pre-ordering from a third party source has absolutely nothing to do with us.

I find that a little odd. You're not going to send out copies to third party sources? Are you planning on only selling the game here? Going to be hard get your game noticed...

So when can we expect to pre-order if at all?

Well since we are a "developer", marketing isn't really where we come in (we usually do the developing). Marketing is usually left up to the publisher (if you have one). Which we do have a publisher, 505 Games.

....

The game you are developing is not even listed at Gamestop.com. It's close to release and I find it odd that it's no where to be found to pre-order. So I am going to assume there won't be a pre-order for this game.

There is a difference between gamespot.com and gamestop.com.. Gamspot.com is a website with game reviews and whatnot. Gamestop.com is where you buy games.
