We got news on Tuesday that Sony was happy with the way the store was now working with the build. “Great news,” I thought and instructed Rami to publish as soon as we could. It wasn’t until the build was published and in people’s hands we realised that Sony hadn’t published the store side. This is because there is a processing time on their end to get the stuff on their store once the game passes, and this process can’t start until then because features may change in the cert process. Talking to our account managers, they can’t speed up the process unfortunately, so the DLC although finished and ready to go, won’t be available until the 11th for PS4 players. It was a massive disappointment for me as I was hoping to be reading everyone’s reactions to it over the next few days.
Xbox is still in with cert and no news is good news with Microsoft, so I’m hoping to get the build out in the next couple of days. I think, at the moment anyway, this will include the store for the DLC.
As I said last week, I’ve been out of the office this week putting the finishing touches to the European and Australian disc versions of the game, which is all going great. I’m hoping we can announce the deal soon. I’ve now got a few days in Ireland for a family wedding which would have been a whole lot more relaxing had the DLC been available on PS4, but it’s been great showing the game off to old friends that are big golfers. They’ve all been hugely impressed which has been great to balance out the disappointment with the DLC availability.
On the PC we’re working with NVidia on the crash with their latest drivers along with lots of other developers. Every time we narrow the crash down it moves. They’re pushing hot fixes out over the next few days and we’re continuing to help them with that. So my hope is we’ll see a fix soon.
Until next week,
