A planned June 15th patch for Wild West Online obviously didn’t happen, and now we know why: The developers said that when they took the patch to test, it ended up being too unstable and buggy to release to live. As a result, a month delay was announced as well as the postponement of a planned free trial version.
“It was a team decision to postpone patch for up to one month, and make sure that we hit all goals we want with it,” the devs said. “We’re very small team at the moment, so while we wanted to have more resources to put on it, we’re going with what we have — what is in line with game’s metrics. ”
Wild West Online has struggled to gain an audience after launching far too early with a recently revamped gameplay build. Steam Charts shows that hardly anyone is playing it these days, with a daily average hovering around three dozen gamers or so.
