It's because the developers boasted about the EA being in a playable state which it clearly isn't. Even for an EA release, the current version just runs extremely badly, up to the point that people call it nothing more than a tech demo, and justifiably so.
Also, keep in mind that The Guild 3 has been announced way back in 2014, which means the game has likely been in development for three years now. Their current release date is set to be the second quarter of 2018. As it stands now, it seems we are going to see a badly broken game on full release.
