Honestly I hope it is indeed next year. I want to play the demo, and give my feedback with a chance that changes will be made. If they are releasing this year, what we get in the demo will most certainly be what we get on release. There's no time to gather a lot of feedback and make adjustments if they are going to be pushing release to this many platforms.
So, not only do I expect a delay I hope for one. However, I believe I'm more patient and have more personally invested in this game than a lot of other people. I only say that because I know a huge chunk of backers are at the digital only lowest cost tier. It's not that those backers aren't as emotionally invested in playing, I just think they probably don't spend time every single day of their lives thinking and talking about Bloodstained like I do. I'd rather the team have time for adjustments I'd like to see than to play the game this year, but I totally understand the perspective of a huge chunk of fans who are already past their patience limit that just wanted to play already and be on to their next game.
E3 over hypes game announcements and that hype can screw up expectations for game that are barely in a state to talk about to the public. Kickstarter is even worse, as Bloodstained was a loose idea with few stretch goals when the campaign just started. We've switched developers, publishers, probably localization, a platform, and we have to port to Vita that sounded like a miricle in the first place to even make happen. We added many stretch goals and have heard that a staggered release is not what the team is among for. We haven't heard anything lately about release other than "we have no release date announced at this time". All signs point to next year. This is assuming that during the Q&A today the question isn't answered though. Stay tuned!

Its not supposed to give you time to offer feedback and possibly change.. its a DEMO bit BETA the point of a DEMO is just to try the game and decide if you wanna buy it (or in this case get a taste of what you backed before you finally get the full course). If youre hoping for feedback and change you want a BETA not a DEMO
