Frontier has released a roadmap for 2022 elite dangerousand it includes plans for players to port their console profiles over to the PC version, which will continue live development.
When it comes to transferring console profiles, you can only copy a profile to the PC version once. Most items will be copied, some not, but the team will list all the information in the new blog. If you copy a console profile to the PC version, your console profile will still be there to play in if you ever want to go back.
The update pace will change, with monthly development posts phasing out in favor of more detailed notices at release when subsequent updates are released, along with streams every two weeks on Thursdays.
As for those development plans? This is the overall roadmap for 2022, and generally their focus is on the next phase of the narrative. Three more major updates are planned to continue supporting the narrative, as well as boosting performance and optimizing the experience. The first of the new planned updates is scheduled for this month and will include a new mission variant, increased stability and optimization. This is Update 12. There are few references to the narration, but here’s what Frontier presented:
“Within the narrative, human space poises on the precipice as tension builds in the bubble. The Azimuth saga concludes with a grand finale, the aftermath of which will mark the beginning of the next phase of the Elite story in Update 14.”
It’s an intriguing preview of what’s next, but it will be some time before this pivotal update arrives. Update 13 is scheduled for August and will include more narrative content. This update will continue to stabilize and optimize the game, just like the May update. However, in November 2022, the next major storytelling phase will begin in Update 14.
They promise a “key feature overhaul” in early 2023.
