@Mr_Gallows Most of the news updates are on the official Discord so that’s the best place to find the most recent info.
The alpha is still running and everything is fine, just delayed a bit beyond the original schedule. I don’t think it’s due for a Q1 release (unless we get very lucky), I think they are just aiming for 2021 without being specific.
COVID rules slowed down development to a degree, but they sorted out how to work from home, etc. The game is due to be released on current and next-gen consoles at the same time as PC (with crossplay over all platforms) so it should be a lot more populated for console players than the first game.
I have no idea about what fps will be available on consoles, though. They’re working hard to optimise the game since it has to run on the current gen, but I don’t currently know more than that.
