H1Z1 postpones roadmap plans to focus on cleanup

We are coming undone

Sometimes you just have to stop moving forward and take a little time to get things cleaned up. The team working behind the scenes on H1Z1 has been pushing forward with gusto, trying to get as many new features packed into the game as possible, but the reality is that over time the game has gotten a little messy. Core gameplay issues have accumulated, bugs need fixing, and so forth. So the developers have stated on the game’s Reddit feed that they’re taking some time to do just that.

The important point is that the developers aren’t going dark; they’re just focused on trimming up existing elements rather than adding new parts to the game for a little while. Changes will still be getting pushed to the test server and then, if all goes well, to the live server shortly thereafter. It does mean tasks will be bumped from the most recent roadmap, but when the exchange means a less buggy and more polished overall game, it seems a worthwhile trade.

BrianSleider Yeah, honestly me too. They waited until half way through the month to post their roadmap for the month…and it’s basically “hey we’re adding nothing”. They’ve postponed features that were on the roadmap months and months ago. It’s sad and just feels like the development is way slowing down. Not too mention it pales in comparison to ARK.

Greaterdivinity They basically ceased all development on new ideas and new additions to the game in favor of doing “optimization” because they needed the game to run on the PlayStation 4 and threw the game into maintenance mode.

CensoredOtaku Lheiah I’ve jumped back into it since group BRs were introduced and noticed nothing really broken.  The new lighting and weather effects really make the game look awesome.  Shooting also feels really tight right now.

melissamcdon Since Landmark is in Beta, maybe you could convince yourself that is the EQN “Technical Alpha”. Just kidding, lets not have that discussion. :P

Lheiah CensoredOtaku I will admit though.  I joined a PVP server for the first time the other day and had a blast even though my team I found got wiped out.  Hooked me.

Damonvile nahenway Oh the irony when you compare that to Star Citizen, where people are happily throwing money at it without any real game to play at all, comparatively speaking.
