After careful deliberation, the development team has decided to postpone the launch of Defiance Free-to-Play on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, originally targeted for July 15. A significant factor contributing to this delay is that we want to ensure a stable launch.
As you’ve seen or possibly experienced this week, we’ve been having stability issues with our console platforms. The team is working on a number of game additions as part of its crossover with Season 2 of the Defiance TV show and the latest build has negatively impacted game stability. Our programmers are working on addressing these issues.
While we don’t have a new ETA for the transition to free-to-play on console, please know that this is a priority fix for us, as we are eager to welcome fans on all platforms to the new Defiance experience. We will provide updates on our progress toward the Free-to-Play launch on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 as they are available. Thanks for your understanding and patience as we work to ensure a stable and successful launch on console.
