400 Days with no console update
Hi everyone, today marks the 400th day that consoles have not received any content update, and PS4 has not received any patches/fixes! Where we're at -

Crimewave Edition (the console version for PS4/XB1) is at update 48 - Dragan, Bomb Heists, remember when you got those in early 2015? That puts console users a full 60 updates behind.

XB1 was released with a crippling bug that didn't let people play online! It's okay, that bug got fixed (five months later! Could you believe if PC couldn't connect to a game for five months?)

PS4 doesn't have voicechat! Can you think of a FPS made in the last five years that doesn't have voicechat, let alone one that requires PD2's level of cooperation? This complete lack of communication (no textchat, either!) makes it terribly hard for new people to learn to ropes, and even for veterans to teach them.

Console players have been told "it's coming" and "we're working hard on it" or some variation of those phrases since literally last year. 400 days in, and some users can't even talk to each other. We've been told it's in testing and will receive no new information for two months. So right now we're at 55 weeks with no content or bug fixes (oh right, we can get difficulty mask drops from random cards! fun!).

It would be great to hear some support, maybe get a few people behind us. Also, as a preemptive response to the inevitable post - PSN and XB stopped making developers pay to upload patches in 2013. And while yes I'm certain multiplatform development is difficult, literally hundreds of other games have come out multiplatform that have received updates and patches (especially that fix critical day-zero bugs) in less than 400 days.

Thanks for reading!

Blame Sony and Microsoft for the unique update system on consoles.

Do what I did and abandon Crimewave Edition. The PC version is way better.

Pretty much this.
Just get over it - move on - and forget PD2 on consoles.

Overkill always "works hard on it" and "ill take a look into it"...
Like they do for example in the issue "saving crimenet filter settings" - since 3 years.

So if they need more than 3 years to improve something simple like crimenet filter settings - what timeframe do you expect for your console updates?

Overkill somehow managed to break the game for two(?) weeks with Goat simulator heist. Actually, I'm not that surprised. And talking about basic game features. Do you know how long did it take for them to add a restart button and pd2stats clone?

You guys have crimenet filters?! I didn't even know that was a thing. All PS4 has for a filter is "friends games"

WAIT what? ...
Are you telling me you can't even set a difficulty / heist filter in console-crimenet?
Wow!

I literally had no idea y'all had settings like that. We have to watch heists pop up on the main crimenet map - although we can buy heists if we want to.

Also no voice/text chat.

Do that again in Day 929

It's ok, i think the pc version of pd2 is just as broken as the console version at the moment. We have a game breaking bug where anyone can be traded out of custody anytime and anywhere.
Oh and heists don't end even if you are all in custody so you have to wait for a new player to come to save your asses. (unless you restart)

If anyone is interested, I made a console version of that "100th Update" art piece.

Twitter link because as someone who doesn't own the game on steam, I can't post images

Ah, I see Next Gen finally caught up to Last Gen as abandonware. I played on PS3, we only got as far as Infamy V and the Armoured Transport heists. Be thankful you made it to Dragan.

I remember that. It's odd they were allowed to release the game again on "next gen" consoles as they pretty much are doing what they did the first time.
