Farewells do not like anyone, and this may be one of the most painful for those who are true lovers of space simulation. Frontier Developments has confirmed that future updates to Elite: Dangerous they will not reach consoles, since the company has chosen to focus on the PC platform due to problems with Sony and Microsoft machines. This is, PS4 and Xbox One.
David Brabenthe founder of Frontier Developments, made an official statement clearly explaining that, with great regret, the decision had been made to put console development aside to focus on progressing with the game. The title will continue to be available on consoles, yes, and only patches that are essential or vital will be added. So, in other words, the servers will not be shut down:
Consoles stay as they are
“Over the past few months, we have been struggling with the best way forward, and it is with a heavy heart that we have decided to cancel all development on the console. on a single code base. Elite Dangerous will continue on console as is now alongside critical updates, but we will focus on new PC content updates in the post-Odyssey code base.”
The odyssey update launched last year had to be a huge expansion for Elite Dangerous, but unfortunately it brought more problems than anything else and Frontier had to deal with a fair amount of patches and fixes to bring the title up to date and offer a satisfying experience. The large player base of Elite Dangerous resides on PC, so the developer will focus all efforts here so that the community does not have to deal with new problems equivalent to those of Odyssey. To be able to enjoy the title in its entirety, and its novelties, it will be necessary to go to PC.
