Elite dangerous is currently in turmoil, and developer Frontier Developments is taking steps to bring the situation under control. The last Odyssey update caused issues, which led to frame rate drops, buggy planet generation and other issues. Fix it up Odyssey has changed the timeline to Elite DangerousOther updates and fans have been frustrated.
Console players have to wait to get them Odyssey while Frontier Developments fixes the PC version of the game. The Odyssey Updating was a massive task, tens of thousands of new places to go and the opportunity to explore worlds on foot. It was originally intended to arrive on consoles in the fall of 2021
David Braben, CEO and founder of Frontier, explained the studio’s decision in a thorough post on the game’s official forums. He wrote,
Ultimately, we believe it is right to focus our efforts on the core Elite Dangerous Odyssey experience for the platforms we have released on, before we open up to more. We know that the work we do to improve players’ experiences of Elite Dangerous Odyssey on PC will benefit other platforms in the future, but the dates and details of the console platforms will change. We do not want to rush to confirm any dates or changes this has on the console release, as we must be fully focused on the core experience. Only when we feel that the basis for the PC release is solid, will we be able to put the console’s roadmap again.
The team intends to focus on game updates that fix bugs and improve performance, as well as add more features to the game. “Behind every bug fix, design decision and community post, there is a person who cares a lot about giving our players the best possible experience,” said Braben.
Elite dangerous is currently available for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
