I dont know the cadence of story content for PSO2 when it first released in Japan many years ago.
JP PSO2 started with multiple chapters on launch (up to Matterboard 5), and afterwards 1 matterboard was released every few months. By the end of that year (5 months after launch), the climax of the episode 1 story was released (Matterboard 8, the fight against Dark Falz Elder).
The following half year (until the release of Episode 2) had the release of 3 more Matterboards, the Huey ARKS tournament, and the 2 Quna matterboards.
Basically JP PSO2 had more story available at launch than NGS and reached the climax of the episode in the time NGS is taking to just get its 2nd chapter.

Does anyone else get the feeling that this game was supposed to be PSO3 and due to either an inability to work on it or a lack of interest they decided to toss it out as an expac to PSO2 and make as much money off of it before the servers shut down?
NGS is indeed the next mainline game, it just was decided early on to tie it to the current PSO2 to not leave the existing players and the cosmetics they've gotten over the years behind.
The lack of content at launch though, it's just how SEGA has handled their mainline online Phantasy Star games ever since PSU.
PSU, PSO2, and now NGS, all of these were barebones at launch, none of these had content worth of a full game at launch and this is a mistake that SEGA keeps repeating with this franchise.
