I am thankful for the effort to make sure it actually works on launch. Thanks.ske7ch wrote:hey guys, I understand the eagerness (shared here as well) but until I have concrete info from the team that the DLC content has successfully completed cert and is just ready to be deployed, I'm not comfortable providing any other "target date" for release. The Creative Assembly team is working with the 343 team to get this Colony DLC out the door as quickly as possible without sacrificing quality.
While I understand we've missed the original date (and the second date we subsequently communicated) providing frequent "the team is still working on it" reports don't really do anything to help the situation. At this stage I'm waiting for real info before I can pass along any new updates. So far, I don't have any new concrete details to share. Work continues. Everyone wants to get this content out the door ASAP which, along with ensuring that bugs are squashed and quality bar is maintained, remain top priorities.
Hopefully I'll get some new info soon.
As of now I have no reason to believe that these Colony issues will have a specific impact on the next DLC for May. That said, we are taking a step back to review the timelines for all DLC going forward along with our promotional cadence to make sure it's all aligned. I would go ahead and set the expectation now that going forward, "the 3rd Wednesday of the month" no longer applies and we will manage and message each respective DLC release as appropriate for monthly releases.
