The new year has been met by the devs of Elite: Dangerous with its latest newsletter, which grants a general roadmap of update plans set for 2023. The year’s updates begin with the promised “interim update” to address problems with Update 14, which is set to go live at the end of this month. The problems that the patch will address haven’t been finalized yet, but the “core problems” that are among the known issues will be a focus.
The newsletter also confirmed that Update 15 and Update 16 will go live this year, with Update 15 targeting an April release and Update 16 set for “later in the year.” The post doesn’t share any further tidbits here, but promises that more information will come soon.
Otherwise the newsletter points to the return of Frameshift Live streams starting on January 19th, some shiny new Twitch Drops, and the usual community initiatives like Screenshot Saturday. It’s a broad strokes look at the coming year overall, but one that at least offers some timetables.
