Frontier Developments has announced that it has been forced to delay the launch of Odyssey, the incoming expansion to interstellar explorer Elite Dangerous. Citing the COVID-19 pandemic as causing “ongoing impact” on production, the DLC will now arrive later in 2021.
“2020 was a difficult year for many, but in spite of those challenges we are pleased with our progress towards what is a truly ambitious new era for the game,” said Frontier on the official Elite Dangerous website. “We’ve been delighted with the excitement and positive response to our development diaries, interviews, streams and trailers and want to thank all of you for your continued support.”
“The ongoing impact of the pandemic however, including the renewed lockdowns in 2021, continues to put added pressure on our teams and ultimately our development timeline. We have therefore had to make the difficult decision to make some adjustments and changes to our existing development roadmap.”
