Elite Dangerous, Focus on ‘Long-Term Future’, End console development in favor of PC-only updates

Big news about Dangerous elite forward, as Frontier CEO David Braben has shared that the game will no longer be actively developed on consoles. As they move on with the game, they’re focusing on a single codebase, so all future content will be PC-only.

The announcement came as an abrupt end, and the Frontier team understands it could be disappointing for Dangerous elite console community. Braben mentions that “the launch of Odyssey is not ideal, including the need to separate the PC/console player base to focus on a PC-only launch”. Odyssey released last May and they are working to improve the experience on PC. There is still work to be done and adequate notice also affects development in general. Frontier still has a lot of work to do to support the game and the community. From By Odyssey With release and reception not as they expected, the team has focused on improving and developing both the pre-Odyssey and post-Odyssey codebase.

The decision to move to a single codebase was to create additional content to continue with the game’s story. To do this, all active development on the console will come to an end. Consoles will continue to run the game and receive important updates or bug fixes, but all new content will be PC-only and will be based on the post-Odyssey codebase.

Braben also expressed his understanding that the console platform might be disappointed by the company’s exit, but after deliberation, here’s how Elite Dangerous moves forward. The move is intended to solidify the long-term future of the game.

While no new development news has been shared, the update says there will be more news on what they’re planning next. Will have an official new update next week. On PC of course.
