When it comes to elite dangerousTo call this past year a year of change would be an understatement. After last year’s release of Elite Dangerous: Odyssey, wasn’t well received, Frontier spent a lot of time fixing bugs before deciding this year to stop development on consoles and just switch to PC to focus on a codebase to update and work on. There was a community event this week and an announcement that the next frameshift live stream has been pushed back to next week. One of the topics listed for this stream is related to the switch: Console Account Transfers.
While we’ll have to wait until the rescheduled stream on May 4th at 4pm BST/11am Eastern/8am Pacific, the issue of console account transfers is an important offering that has the potential to attract a number of players who otherwise would have simply been left behind by the counter. Some players reacted to the announcement, noting that they had already decided to start fresh on PC, but this could be an open door that helps the community, now that it’s a single platform, a bit to grow more.
The next Frameshift Live had a bit of a bumpy road before the replacement date was announced. A post was originally made on the game’s social media accounts with the message that the stream is not happening this week and that they would update when they resume, leaving things a little up in the air. eThis seemed to surprise some players who were hopeful about the state of the game and how things were going.
However, worries were ended when the new date was announced the next day.
