You can make excuses all you want, but the truth remains that "soon" to them means whenever the hell they want
Art and Game design are WORLDS apart.
If art takes 1 week (estimate, idk what your father does). Then that's an artist's idea of "soon"
If a game took 1 week. Then THAT would be a game developer's idea of "soon"
PROBLEM! That's not how long games take.
You know those games that always get released along with movies? THEY SUCK.
Why? Because the directors/investors only give game developers 2~3 monthes to make the game. Those people who order for a game to be made only see it as free advertisement for their idea/movie. They don't actually care about (or at least don't understand) the game quality.
There are some movie-inspired games that get released 2~3 years after the movie. Those are usually highly HIGHLY rated because game developers were actually given a less time-restricted schedule to flesh out the graphics and content.
You're wrong. You're misinformed. You're living in your own world. (and I'm a mean S.O.B.)
That's the reality.
