I'd be extremely surprised if Battalion goes anywhere at this point. There's nowhere near enough developer interaction for an Early Access title. The game needs a lot of work as at the moment it's stale and completely lacks any sort of vision. For me, developing the game on UE4 was their first mistake. Movement is clunky, it's not visually appealing in the slightest and there's almost a non-existent player base. I know they say "there's no such thing as bad publicity" but frankly the whole Shroud skin fiasco is nothing but the latter. Not to mention that the official forum is essentially ignored.
Don't get me wrong. I'd LOVE for Battalion to become a massively popular competitive FPS but if the developers don't change course soon they might as well call it quits right now as clearly something isn't working.
