Cloud Imperium Games has announced that Star Citizen’s Arena Commander Dogfighting Module has been delayed.
Previously, Arena Commander Dog-Fighting Module was set to launch on 29th of May but in a meeting that took place yesterday at the studio, developers decided not to release the update just yet.
Creator of Star Citizen Chris Roberts wrote:
The team has been working around the clock for the past two weeks to polish gameplay and eliminate the bugs that would allow us to release Arena Commander V0.8. Today at 4:00 PM PST, I sat down with Star Citizen’s production leads for a ‘go/no-go’ meeting.
We went around the virtual table, like a ground control team preparing to launch a rocket, and the decision was that we are not able to release Arena Commander tomorrow as there are too many blocking and critical issues outstanding.
He continued on to provide reasons that stopped the team from releasing the update, which included a number of crashes that were happening during gameplay and developers thought that releasing the update with these issues would be “foolish.”
It is a good decision from the developers, as it gives them more time to resolve any issues surrounding the update.
Now, they have more time to fix the problems surrounding the update and release it when it is playable because an unfinished product will be more annoying than the delay.
