Development Update 1 - June

We all work together! I was here getting the reports, looking for patterns in cases, checking issue tracker with the guys, anything that can be done to support Dev side with pinning down the exact cause. It's a merry dance between us all.
I just would like to adress this to the dev team directly. Despite what it may seem, the community is genuinely frustrated with the course that Elite is taking and are proceeding to jump ship (no pun intended). Please tell me that the console release will atleast fix the PC issues; better yet, new free content?

The answer to this is worth far more than a response from me in a Forum thread, entirely, and I'm sure you know that :)
For those who continue with us on this journey, we'll share that kind of news as soon as accurately available.
Everyone involved on our side continues to work very hard on the development of the game though - something I'm more than happy to keep confirming for you.

Will there be any kind of update on the console plans in the near future, @sallymorganmoore please?
 
Oh man, last Thursday was very intense with the Mauve Adders. I did genuinely feel bad that I couldn't be as chatty but the Mauve Adders and Missions really did need all of our additional support energy behind the scenes. I'll do my best to make up for it this week but can't promise the same level of attention outside of Thursday due to dev side work. The other guys will of course be here. We'll do our very best.
But you aren't the only CM, where are the others? Apart from your Thursdays, I'd never know there was a rota for the other CMs to be active on the Forums.

In any case, she is the only one I notice here. She also seems to be particularly capable of multitasking and responds to hundreds of requests simultaneously in 20 threads. Who needs other CMs there?

Everyone works in their own ways. Remember there are multiple social platforms to cover, not just forums and certainly not just one or two Commanders out there sending DMs, tagging and filing issue tickets. There are four of us active to support all sides vs well....lots.
I'm just a bit on the chatty side and consume way over the recommended intake of caffeine.
I mean hence I'm here now at 20:42. I certainly am not expected to be but...like I say, any which way we function best at this time for you all.

Hmm .. this has got me triggered just a tad.
So where could the question be answered?
I for one am extremely unhappy with the way the frontier management have been conspicuous by their absence ever since odyssey dropped. They were happy to do promo videos and hype the product before the alpha but now that it’s all gone pear shaped well, I’m sure you know. So far frontier’s attempts to be ‘accurate’ and control the reactions of the community have only had the exact opposite effect. My relationship with frontier is currently much more broken than the game itself. Thanks Sally for engaging with us.
 
What more would you like them to say? They have a massive dumpster fire on their hands that after 5 major patches has barely dented the issue. Their shares have taken a major hit and they are getting negative reviews from all sides. They have a console release pending and if the issues are not sorted out they will see another hit to their shares while two major franchises they are working with on new games are watching the whole dumpster fire spread. At the moment it seems they are not even sure how to fix it. What more can she tell you except to be polite and tell you how hard everyone is working. It’s a mess.
 
Next update is in the fall

Since the delay was announced in Jan this year, the only info that console CMDRs have had is "Autumn 2021". A little more information in advance would be nice; how the development is progressing, whether the Updates recently released have impacted the console launch window, whether we'll be able to pre-order Odyssey, if there's any possibility of taking advantage of the newer consoles capabilities, etc.

They just need to revert back to pre-EDO and let the DLC bake for a year or 2. Furthermore, they need to lower that price to $20
 
Sally going above and beyond is a real credit but I also don't want to take away from what the others are saying. I do hope the team that are in charge of the direction of this game realise there is immense frustration here and there are a lot of long term players that have left/are leaving or are just barely hanging on to this game. So much so that this time I actually worry for the game. Please don't underestimate this isan't just a few vocal voices on the forums. I'm sure they see all the metrics though and know this.

If there is a way that we can help you in all this besides sitting on our hands please let us know Sally. But a lot of us need some good news and before console launch quite preferably. Please know we appreciate all the effort that goes in though and try not to get too disheartened. :-/

Fair enough, she probably can’t say much, but after the broken ‘end of June’ promised by frontier, we’ll we’ve got to the point that it’s worse than just a malfunctioning game.

Arthur Tolmie has already indicated in a stream that the schedule has become tight.
 
They also need to refund odyssey until it actually works.

Thank you for the answer Sally. All I would ask is that there is at least some kind of response or acknowledgment to at least some of the questions being asked, even if it's just to say "We honestly don't know".

There is more that I could say on this matter, but I won't, because you don't deserve to bear the brunt of my frustrations at this time.
