Executive producer Nathan Richardsson took to the Defiance community blogs over the weekend to address the MMOâ€™s issues and problems, particularly for Xbox 360 users.
â€œThere are problems to be solved, this is what we signed up for, gaming is what we love doing and weâ€™re incredibly sorry that you have to go through these issues now with us,â€ Richardsson wrote. â€œWe want to live up to your expectations and in some cases, we obviously arenâ€™t. And Iâ€™m sorry for that.â€
The first major patch is planned for April 15, with a second major update to follow two weeks later. The patchâ€”which will be released for PC, PS3, and Xbox 360â€”will address many of the gameâ€™s technical issues (server crashes, connection issues, lag, and more).
â€œAgain, our apologies,â€ Richardsson concluded. â€œAfter five years of creating this, it saddens us and frustrates us that you arenâ€™t getting the great experience we strived to create. The upside is that it makes us quite determined to get you there.â€
EGMâ€™s review of Defiance will go up later this week.
Richardsson also mentioned that Trion has 5 add-ons for Defiance slated for release throughout 2013, but at the moment their priority is tackling the numerous issues that plague the MMO shooter.
