PS4 patch won't come anytime soon
At this point, we already know that the devs ######### up with the PS4 patch and are trying to cover their tracks and save their face in front of the public. If you think about it, they probably knew something like that was going to happen, given their track record with bugs and not working things in this game (thank goodness we had a PTR to find bugs! This really helped developement! /s) and therefore only gave us the timeframe "upcoming weeks" so nobody could blame them for missing a deadline (of course the PR genius that is Mr. McCote basically killed this argument, telling us on stream that the process should take around 2-3 weeks).
As most are already assuming, the patch probably failed the certification process at least once (probably more), if they even sent it in when they said they would. As we know from other developers, the certification for new games (which they apparently had to take for this huge update. I kind of doubt this but let's give them the benefit of the doubt here) takes 5 days for the game and another 5 days for the day 1 patch (which Behaviour wouldn't need) so we would have 10 days. Even if these were 10 business days and they sent the patch in on the same day the PC patch dropped, that time window is already over. So yeah, the patch failed.
But Behaviour won't admit it. Why would they? That would mean that the first big update they give us now that they are independet is such a train wreck that it can't get past Playstation certification (since it came through on Xbox with a "small" problem that had to be fixed, I'd assume they did "a pretty good job" on porting the patch). With the law suit from Bethesda also against them, the last thing they need is more bad publicity. What to do? Just blame the certification process and not the poor planning or coding. That is also the reason why they won't even bother entertaining the thought of giving us compensation for the time we waited (I'd even throw in the thought of giving the whole DbD community something so that nobody feels left out). If they would do that, they would admit that they ######### up.
The thing that really baffles me is why they wait for DLC confirmation on PS4, as if we would need the dlc for the patch. They could simply put the patch online before the DLC drops like they did on Xbox. But somehow they don't? Could it be that they lied to us about the positive feedback (yup guys, unpack your tin foils) just so that they can say "Hey, see? We communicate with you guys! We are obviously not trying to hide our big ######### up!". Even more interesting is that we get this confirmation the day before 4th of july and after a canadian holiday. This smells like they are stalling for time right now, hoping that their newest attempt at passing a simple certification will work, although I admit that sounds pretty weak but let's see what information we get tomorrow and see if my intuition is right (if we even hear something).
Like most PS4 players I'm fed up with the waiting. I love the game, I really do but the more time passes and the devs only give us their "we are waiting for confirmation"-bullshit, I get less and less motivated to even spend another cent for this game. At first I wanted to buy the dlc and get a couple of cosmetics but this slimmed down to "maybe just the dlc and doc cosmetic" then to "just the dlc" and I am almost at the point were I think "Why should I spend even one cent to support these incompetent devs?". Good thing Fortnite got released for Switch and therefore made me give it a chance. I don't like the gameplay as much as I like the gameplay of DbD but at least there we can get updates on all plattforms simultaneously (shocking, I know!) and you don't feel being lied to just because you play on a different plattform than the developers favorite plattform. And hey, I even did what Mr. McCote told us to do, although I am very sorry to say that I didn't go play Civilization.
tl;dr: PS4 patch won't come anytime soon, Devs lied, try to cover up their ######### up, will more likely spend money on games with competent development teams.
