Oof. Well, that's disappointing. Pretty much guarantees another week of bad queue times.
All that hype for nothing...
why we they need an extra week, that's literally almost a month and most of the time nothing major changes from the ptb towards live. I hope this doesn't start to become a common thing happening.
Well, if the update is delayed a mere week (which is nothing) - they probably have their reasons. I would rather wait a bit for a better working patch than get something buggy and unfinished early.
We don't need an extra week though? It's just unnecessary...
we all know we will get something bugy and unfinished late.
@Chop We are reviewing the way we are scheduling updates. This time, we are testing a new schedule, allowing for more time between PTB and release. We hope this will allow enough time for the team to tackle more issues before the release.
Slight tweaks scheduled for March 17th.
Better then an weak killer with 7 billion bugs
I mean issues go like 6 months or more without being "Tackled" so I don't know how much of a difference one week will make; but if it means less problems on launch take as long as you want- but please hurry up with fixing the game breaking issues.
thanks for the info, it's much better to know
why is it whenever an update comes out, there’s always something that drags it down. My hype was already fairly low but it just got lower. Fantastic.
if this extra week actually ends up doing something amazing for the game then great, but I don’t see it. The game will still and always will be bug ridden.
Personally I think it's fantastic they are taking extra time before the release. It's awesome, and a move I didn't expect them to make.
I agree as well. I’m hoping the new killer is balanced and not too strong/weak, I’m just speaking on my play style. This new chapter seems very exciting and I don’t want them to rush if it’s not as polished as they’d like it to be
My guess, it's taking longer to get through console certification.
yeah but they can't say that we all know why
What I find kinda lame about this is that the next tome is also next week.... could have been nice if we had either the new DLC or the new Tome this week to have something to do.
Are the cosmetics also kidna moved with the DLC or is that not related at all?
Im disappointed, its time to play civ
Sounds good to me! Obviously I want to play it ASAP but if waiting an extra week means a more polished experience then I'm all for it
propaby yes skins will get pushed back too
So extra week. Makes me wonder if this extra week will somehow affect the typical, BHVR style, not trigger happy change within 2 weeks after every killer release that drastically changes how killer performes.
Well, ######### me, i am busy all day the 10th and tomorrow I have just about enough time to play.
I hope the delay at least is worth it :T
Could you imagine being so entitled that you get upset when game developers want to give you a better product? Yesh, some of these responses are serious cringe.
If the devs feel like they need an extra week to ensure the chapter is polished up and ready for release, I'm 100% for it. I'm glad the devs are passionate enough to want to give us a good chapter release that isn't overshadowed by bugs and other mess.
Well it does get pretty annoying when the community is left to speculate a release date for a content drop that really, should have a release date by now. If they really did plan to release the DLC a week later, I find it odd that they said nothing until the last minute. It’s also very likely that little will change between now and next week.
People are allowed to be angry and express it, especially when the developers lack the co-ordination to keep the community well informed. It’s pretty much standard nowadays.
You guys at BHVR do what you have to. So excited for Deathslinger!
Considering their track record, we'll still probably get something buggy and unfinished, just delayed by a week.
The new killer is still going to be C tier at best if they don't adjust him. He's going to be played for a week or less, then you'll never see him again. More Oni, Nurse, Billy, etc
Not a surprise though considering they needs to be balancing with the new upcoming stuff. Deathslinger needs a buff, sabotaging hooks needs a balance, new matchmaking needs to work etc. Hopefully some of the changes will be put in the PTB before it becomes live so we can test them out first.
While I'm delighted it seems they are taking extra steps to ensure releases are less buggy... I'm just frustrated that they communicated this only a few hours before a lot of people expected the release. Surely they knew a day or more ago and could have given players the heads up then?
whaat? bhvr delaying an update? that's like... unheard of
