PSA: Update will not drop on 5/26

Looks like the update won't be out on the 26th. I assume they'll do something for the one year, but expect double xp and tapes.

Better luck In June, I guess.

At this point, I'd rather they wait until they can devote the time to troubleshooting when needed post-patch.  Dumping that large an update into the wild and leaving everything on autopilot is a bad move whether you're a small studio/developer, or a soulless mega-company like EA.  

Another week or two isn't going to hurt as much as pushing it out with no support for four or five days over a holiday weekend in The Colonies.

Seriously, the answers of the people involving this game make me cringe sometimes. 

All of the time.

Well that wasn't a big surprise. Shifty said that they woul give the release date with anticipation because it's important and blah blah. I just hope they give the release date to "celebrate" the 1 year anniversary

Does anyone know if it has been said if the car rubber band glitch will be fixed in this patch? You know, the one that has been present since DECEMBER...that alone makes me want to uninstall this fucking game.

Or the Tommy Jarvis issue where if you didn't find a walkie as a counsellor you don't spawn with a working one with Tommy. An issue that's be existing since launch.

Exactly what I was thinking! If they send it out Thursday and there are a few bugs that majorly affect certain aspects of gameplay and there is no one around to fix it for several days, it will cause even more chaos in Friday the 13th land. In fact I feel like that already happened once before on a holiday weekend.

It's happened on countless other games/patches, regardless of developer or studio.  Better to avoid the issue altogether.  They aren't going to lose players pushing back something this long in the making by a handful of days.

I wonder if the Necromancers are ready to resurrect us in the year 20030.

Ever have the one where you die with no small map because of high fear, and come back as Tommy without a small map? Also cant see any of your items...

seriously the fact that a game breaking glitch like that has been allowed to persist is fucking UNACCEPTABLE. That should have been fixed the very second anyone caught wind of it.

I we really have to wait till june-july then jesus christ these guys are truly hacks.

Or muting a player(s) in the lobby and having them STAY MUTED! when someone else enters the lobby. Also an issue since launch.

I have been playing online games since 1996 and have never seen a patch/upgrade/expansion (whatever you want to call it) drop on a weekend. 

As for this update - I am in no rush - it will happen when it happens.

I think we all need to put ourselves in the developers shoes.....

 

If we got paid a million dollars, in advance, for work we intend to do in the future, there's a good chance that we would do that work whenever the fuck we wanted to do it. Why? Cause we already been paid so there is no real motivation to accomplish our goals quickly. Not to mention that we could push out anything to cover our ass if any investor was to request a return.

For example: If you pay me $6000, in advance, to pave your driveway. I could show up Monday to grade the land and lay down the gravel. Technically, I've not given you the entire thing you paid for, BUT the driveway is usable until I come back from vacation in 6 months. As soon as I get back, I'll pour the concrete and give it a few days to set up. Now there are cracks in it because I done a half assed job so you would quit complaining. I'm gonna promise you I'll fix it for free but it'll have to be in my time but here's the new issue.......

I'm gonna do new jobs that pay me before I do anything for free.

You're not going to be in business very long if that's all your charging to build driveways. You need to up your rates.

@ShiftySamurai care to give a straightforward comment on whether or not the glitches described above as well as the car rubber band glitch is being fixed in this?
