This is just a question I have been wondering about since there is a number of people that don't play Early access-games or beta versions of games before release.

If a game is retired in early-access due to too many updates etc... (not because of VAC or multiplayer reasons) Will it be revisited for trainers post-release?

If a game is in early-access or beta should there be trainers in the first place? -- yes it may increase enjoyability of the game while it's in a beta or alpha state but doesn't using said trainers actually hurt the game developers more than helping them since any bugs you come across in-game can't easily be attributed to the base code itself and not the trainer? I know personally i think even though i do play early-access games (and have on one occasion used a trainer myself albeit after dumping in several hours of testing beforehand) that trainers should wait until release as not only will it save you guys time and resources working on pre-release games that you always know will have more updates just due to the fact it isn't released yet, as well as the expected post-release patches, which in turn will save people who don't have lifetime memberships (i do have one so not an issue for me) from having to switch just to receive a trainer as it has far more trainer updates than release + post-release patches.

summing up in fewer words.

will games retired pre-release be revisited upon release when it is *HOPEFULLY!* more stable as far as less patches?

Should the manhours and resources (as well as loss of viable testers for game developers) for making trainers even be used on pre-release games?
